PLA offers a broad range of wood and packaging products and solutions from standard sized pallets to custom built specifications to meet every customer’s need. We manufacture new and recycled options, as well as pallet management programs, custom crating, and clean up and removal services
TOTAL PALLET MANAGEMENT
With the Total Pallet Management program (TPM) comes the opportunity for the customer to maximize supply chain efficiencies and realize cost savings. Total Pallet Management is a process in which PLA manages all facets of reusable packaging including sortation and handling of wood pallets, pooled pallets, plastic pallets and reusable containers, and recyclables. We also have the capacity to run freight and inventory services and tailor each TPM program to the specific needs of the customer.
NEW MANUFACTURED PALLETS
Always looking to the newest technology, we are utilizing a cutting edge system to design new pallets specific to each customer’s needs. From standard 48x40 GMA pallets to custom sizes, our Pallet Design System (PDS) is used to assist in developing the shipping platform that best suits your material handling needs at the most cost-effective price. Let us illustrate the physical & performance characteristic of a proposed pallet configuration prior to entrusting it to support your valuable shipments.
We offer recycled standard 48x40 GMA pallets of various grades to meet your needs, including A (#1) and B (#2) grades to meet price and quality requirements.
REMANUFACTURED AND COMBO PALLETS
Using recycled material, we can create custom sized pallets to meet your specifications, while demonstrating environmental sustainability and achieving cost savings.
Combo pallets are manufactured for our customers exact needs. With this option, part of the pallet consists of recycled material as well as new materials such as new stringers or deck boards, allowing for cost savings coupled with pallet performance

REPAIR AND RETURN PROGRAMS
PLA provides the ability for customers to maintain control of their pallets through our cost-effective repair programs. Each customer’s specific repair requests can be met according to their requirements and standards.
HEAT TREATMENT AND STERILIZATION
Because of the International Plant Protection Convention, pallets must now be made of materials that are not capable of spreading invasive insects of plant species. ISPM 15 standards state that all export wooden shipping packaging must be treated by heating the pallet to achieve a minimum core temperature of 56°C for at least 30 minutes. PLA has the capability to take care of all international shipping needs.
