APE provides new pallets in both hardwood and southern yellow pine species. Along with standard 48x40 pallets, we can make custom pallets of all sizes and configurations. 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.
