Custom Timber Pallets
Pinewood products — Specialty pallets
Along with our standard pallets, we provide our clients with customised pallets for their packaging requirements. For example, should they be shipping internationally, the standard size for Australian pallets (1165mm x 1165mm) may not be the optimum size required for the company’s goods for transport.
At Pinewood Products, we can build custom pallets to suit every transport and storage request, including specialty pallets that suits our client’s cargo or individual storage dimensions and capacities.
What is the ISPM15 standard?
We can build our custom pallets to ISPM15 standards. This is the internationally recognised sanitary standards created by the World Trade Organisation’s International Plant Protection Convention. Designed to prevent the international shipment of solid wood materials (such as pallet packaging) which have the potential to introduce pathogens to their destination, ISPM15 is used worldwide as the approved standard.
As an Australian exporter of goods overseas, it is of paramount importance that there be no outstanding issues with storage. It is vital for the smooth flow of commerce that goods shouldn’t be held up at overseas terminals. Our custom pallets, made to ISPM15 standard, gives our clients peace of mind.
Scalloped timber for packaging and storage
Transporting concrete or plastic pipes? Our experienced team at Pinewood Products can supply scalloped timber to accommodate such packaging necessities.
Pallets and packaging are a key part of any business distribution network, whether using them to store goods or transport them nationally or internationally. Therefore, getting the right type of pallet and packaging is important. Sometimes this means ordering custom-made pallets that will solve these requirements. With over 30 years in the business, we have both the experience and knowledge to build quality, specialty pallets that will fulfil any transport or storage need.

We understand our customers may have a specific need for national or international transport, and we are happy to work with them to find those solutions, be it a standard pallet, custom pallet or general timber packaging.

When you send shipments on Australian sized pallets instead of custom pallets your clients are faced with a problem. A standard European size pallet is 1200 x 1800mm, while in North America they are 1016 x 1219mm. This means your clients will either waste storage space with pallets that do not fit together perfectly or they’ll need to reload everything on arrival which takes some time to redo. Avoid this dilemma by using custom wooden pallets from Pinewood Products’ range.
Custom hardwood pallets for returnable flows
Custom pallets can be made to order for specific uses. Custom pinewood pallets are cheap — perfect when you are sending a one-time shipment and the pallet will not be returned. Long-lasting but slightly more costly, custom hardwood pallets are ideal for when you are sending and receiving from clients and can get the pallet back. For custom pallets of any type, get in touch with Pinewood Products today.
Custom hardwood or softwood pallets
Custom timber pallets are made to order for specific uses. Most custom pallets are cheap and intended to be disposed of — perfect when sending a one-time shipment, and the pallet will not be returned. However, when sending and receiving pallets from clients, you may prefer custom made pallets that are more durable. Being able to re-use the same pallets repeatedly will save you money in the long term and is one of the top reasons to buy custom shipping pallets.
We use the same high-quality timber in our specialty pallets as we do in the rest of our range of products. So whether you’re looking for affordable pinewood custom pallets in Melbourne or long-lasting hardwood custom pallets in Sydney, Pinewood Products is here to help. We have custom pallets for sale that will fit any requirement, so get in touch today and let us know what you need!
