Timber Packaging & Pallet Confederation

 
Buyers Guides - Benefits of Wood
  
There are many benefits of using wooden packaging why not watch our 3 minute video highlighting some of the most important. 
 
Did you know?

Using wooden packaging will reduce your carbon footprint
Wood is a naturally renewable material that is easy and efficient to convert into pallets.  Growing trees convert more CO2 into oxygen and the vast majority of pallet timber is provided from renewable forests, therefore using 1 cubic metre of wood will remove nearly 1 tonne of carbon monoxide from the atmosphere.

Global Acceptance
ISPM15 is an international standard for wooden packaging which is now accepted by over 50 countries - see our Global Guide for details.

Hygiene
Pine and Spruce have a natural antibacterial effect providing better hygiene protection than plastic or steel.

Low fire hazard
Plastic pallets are a major fire hazard even when storing inert goods - see the videos [Ignition Test] and [Pallet Stack Fire] sponsored by the Association of British Insurers.
