CICP Plastic Pallets

The newly redesigned 40 x 48 CICP pallet, manufactured by Orbis®, is an economic, single use plastic pallet that is ideal for export and one-way shipments. Made from recycled material, it is lightweight, nestable and an environmentally conscious alternative to wood pallets. Unlike wood pallets, many of which end up in our landfills each year after only one use, the CICP is reusable and 100% recyclable. Ideal for exporters, they offer a consistent tare weight and size for calculating transportation costs and are exempt from ISPM15 regulations because they cannot harbor pests, mold or fungus like their wood counterparts. These plastic export pallets are an inexpensive alternative to treated wood pallets which can be costly, time consuming, and DO NOT ASSURE your goods will get through customs.

The CICP plastic pallet can reduce the chance of possible product damage which can occur from the breakdown of wood pallets; is water & weather resistant (won’t absorb water), and won’t warp, dent, chip, splinter, rot or rust.

They are ideal for moving, storing and distributing product while protecting it until it reaches its final destination. When empty, they can offer up to a 4 to 1 nesting ratio, reducing costs by saving warehouse and shipping space.

Their smooth surfaces, lack of sharp edges, and added stability protect your workers from injury and reduce the chances of accidents caused by pallet failure.

The static load capacity for these plastic pallets is 7,500 lbs. Optional runners allow for stacking and will increase the dynamic load capacity from a standard 1,000 lbs. to 1,750 lbs.
