They are fully subject to the ISPM15 Standard for the heat treatment of all wood packaging. During your export shipments you must provide in your customs file the treatment certificate containing the coordinates and approval number of the site that practiced ISPM15.
The relative humidity of the wood pallet is above 45%. For this reason, we strongly advise you to mechanically dry your pallets for your container or long-distance truck exports.
This will avoid the potential inconvenience of contamination by mould or fungus as well as the rising of humidity on your boxes during deliveries.
For your exports, we provide you with a certificate of conformity for the pallets we have processed.

The precautions for use are only associated with your handling conditions and the condition of the soil during transport. If you hit a pallet with the forks of a forklift truck, the forks can seriously damage the structure and alter the load resistance conditions.
When handling by hand, the use of suitable safety gloves is mandatory to prevent splinters and cuts.
CP and VMF pallets are manufactured according to strict quality criteria using sections of softwood (pine, fir, Douglas fir, etc.).
The variability in moisture content of the wood imposes tolerances on the dimensions of +0/-2mm. The tolerances are greater during mechanical drying where the shrinkage of the wood is greater +0/-4mm.
Tolerances are checked on thickness, width and section lengths.
