APE manufactures new pallets in both hardwood and southern yellow pine species. Along with standard 48X40 pallets, we can make tomato pallets, reversible pallets and custom pallets of all sizes are available. Deck board thickness typically varies from 3/8” to 1.0”. The deck board pattern, or the spacing between boards on the top and bottom decks, can be varied according to customer needs, such as for tomato and wing pallets.
At times, a non-standard custom pallet is the only answer to your shipping needs and Atlantic Pallet is here to help. Our engineering and logistics team can work with your plant personnel to better understand your shipping requirements. We can even tour your facility in order to learn as much as possible about your material handling system and assess your pallet needs. Together, we will develop a cost-effective pallet for your application. For specific load bearing requirements, APE can also design custom pallets using Pallet Design System (PDS™) software, a state-of-the-art engineering CAD system developed at Virginia Tech, that provides detailed blueprints for each design.

Combination (Combo) pallets are a hybrid between new and recycled pallets, usually containing new stringers and reclaimed deck boards. Like remanufactured pallets, combo pallets have the advantage of being completely rebuilt pallets, so they can have any board pattern that a customer desires. When viewed from the side, they look almost like new pallets and make an excellent impression on receiving customers. Ideal situations for combo pallets include:
Heat Treating Services
- High end-user/customer expectations
- Heavy loads
- Unique board spacing requirements
- One-time (one way) applications
With the rise of global trade, the United Nations’ International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) spelled out the specific standard by which all wood products used in international trade would be treated for insects and other pests. The result is ISPM-15 (International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures). Atlantic Pallet can heat treat pallets (new or recycled), containers, or dunnage in accordance with ISPM-15.
Warehousing and Storage
In some markets, APE can store customer pallets in our clean and dry warehouses. We can then ship them when needed by the customer. This is useful for just-in-time (JIT) operations or when customer dock and storage space is limited.
