Newest ORBIS pallet is exempt from ISPM 15
OCONOMOWOC, Wis.-- ORBIS Corporation, a subsidiary of Menasha Corporation, announced that it has launched a 40.0” x 48.0” x 5.0” plastic pallet designed specifically for international trade. This pallet is exempt from ISPM 15* regulations and fully eliminates the need for heat-treated wood pallets currently required for international shipments.
The 40 x 48 CICP pallet provides an environmental, lightweight alternative to wood pallets used for the import and export of goods. The all-plastic, one-piece nestable design cannot harbor pests, mold or fungus.
This nestable, open deck pallet weighs 13 pounds and offers the necessary strength-to-weight ratio for a one-way shipping pallet. Its efficient nest-ratio of 3.3:1 allows 1,980 pallets to in a standard 53’ trailer.
According to Marc Brandt, ORBIS Product Manager, “By design, this pallet offers consistent tare weights, aiding check-in at the first port of entry. And, because it requires no documentation, it speeds the customs process and reduces risk of rejection.” This pallet is also manufactured using recyclable materials. Brandt continues, “Nearly 100% of the content is recoverable and available for use in new pallets.”
The 40 x 48 CICP offers an open, flow-through deck for easy cleaning; contoured corners and smooth edges for easy handling; 4-way forklift or handjack entry; optional all-plastic picture frame bottom for secure double stacking; and unique non-skid surface that prevents product shift during transport.
Plastic returnable containers and pallets improve the flow of product all along the supply chain to reduce costs. ORBIS, based in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin, helps world-class customers move their product faster, easier, safer and more cost-effectively. ORBIS uses proven expertise, industry-leading knowledge, innovation, superior products (containers, pallets and dunnage) and supply chain services (pooling, cleaning and logistics) to implement plastic returnable packaging systems.
