Our molded wood pallets are twice as stiff as new hardwood pallets

Why stiffer pallets are always better to use for improved product protection:
  • They are more stable.
  • They reduce the vibration transmissions and stresses on packaged products being transported.
  • They help to resist load shifting during transportation.
  • They allow the potential to reduce the specification and cost of primary packaging materials.

ISPM15 Compliant Biobased Certification Cradle to Cradle

Litco’s Inca Engineered Molded Wood Pallets Improve Supply Chain Efficiency

Cost Effective

Litco’s molded wood pallets offer a high performance, low cost alternative to other types of pallets. They are highly effective for limited reuse, and one-way domestic and export shipping. View Full Product / Price List

Durable And Lighter-Weight

Due to their eco–intelligent design, Inca molded wood pallets have a 52% greater resistance to fork-related, pallet edge damage. This is because they do not use nails or staples to form joints that are subject to failure upon impact. They are typically 33% lighter than new hardwood pallets, which makes them easier for manual handling and allows you to ship more product and less packaging materials.

Ready For Export

Litco’s “export-grade” molded wood pallets are considered processed wood and are exempt from the IPPC-ISPM 15 export packaging regulations. They are a low-cost, hassle free way to export your product. Because of the high-heat process, they are free of unwanted pests and are welcome, as is, into any trading member country. They do not require any additional heat treatment or stamping for export use.

The following is a link to the IPPC-ISPM 15 regulation. Please see page 6, “Requirements, Regulated Wood Packaging Material, Section 2.1 Exemptions, item 2”.

Clean, Dry, Mold And Termite Resistant

The heat-treating process for killing infestation with conventional wooden pallets actually draws moisture to the surface of the pallet. In high humidity conditions, without the proper ventilation while stored indoors or in overseas containers, the moisture may promote the growth of mold.

This is not the case with Litco’s molded wood pallets. The typical moisture content of the molded wood pallet is 3% at the time of manufacture. That is equal to 86% less moisture content than new hardwood pallets and 30% less than repaired wooden pallets. At this low moisture, they are less likely to promote the growth of mold and attract moisture sensing pests.

The hot pressing of the molded pallets at sanitizing temperatures that exceed 350 degrees Fahrenheit, makes them preferable for use in clean environments and manual handling because they are less likely to contaminate the products that it carries.

Safer For People And Compatible With Packaging Materials

Looking for a safer pallet? Look no further! There are no sharp, protruding nails and loose boards which can injure employees and customers. The rounded corners and tapered legs also prevent tearing of outer stretch-wrap and damage to primary packaging materials. These design features directly reduce product damage and worker related claims due to injuries as they travel through the supply chain. View More Pallet Safety Information

Space Saving Nest-able Design

Litco’s high density, molded wood pallets are formed in a 1,200 ton press at over 1,000 psi. With a space saving ratio of 2.5 to 1, you can store 1,200 molded pallets compared to 480 conventional pallets in an area of 320 square feet.

This design feature provides significant space savings in the warehouse, the automatic pallet dispenser and at the individual work stations throughout the plant. View Pallet Space Saving Charts

Automatic Pallet Dispensing

Fifty nested, molded wood pallets can be dispensed in most automatic pallet dispensers. This equates to 2.5 times as many pallets when compared to stringer and block-style pallets. This feature will also decrease the fork truck traffic in the plant required to feed the dispenser. If your dispenser is not compatible with our pallet, we can recommend a source to modify your existing or design a dispenser to meet your needs. View Pallet Dispensing Video

Pallet Storage Racks

Litco’s nest-able molded wood pallet designs do not have bottom deck boards as required for open beam racking. However, they can be safe to use in pallet storage racks provided that proper supports such as wire mesh or other materials have been added to the bottom surface of each rack position to distribute the weight of the unit load.

If your racks do not have the supports added to prevent pallets from falling through the racks, contact your storage rack specialist for a safe design and proper working load based on your individual weight bearing requirements.

Multiple Stacking Of Unit Loads

The nine-leg configuration of Litco’s engineered molded wood pallet is beneficial for nesting the pallets together to save time and space. The tradeoff is a reduction in bottom deck surface bearing area when compared to wooden pallets that have bottom deck boards. Depending on the type of product and packaging this design may limit the ability to multiple stack unit loads in storage and transit. In some applications, the pallet legs will enhance the stability of the load.

There are a variety of affordable options and materials that Litco’s Product Specialists can suggest to enhance the ability to successfully multiple stack unit loads.

Cradle To Cradle CertifiedTM Sustainable

Litco’s molded wood pallets are easy on the environment. The use of  damaged logs, wood waste, and other wood by-products is the material of choice. Litco’s Inca engineered molded wood Inca pallets and core plugs are the first pallets and core plugs to achieve the honor of Cradle to Cradle CertifiedTM by working with MBDC, the leading Cradle to Cradle assessors. One reason is they are engineered by design to do more with less. That means they can carry more static and dynamic product load while using less materials and energy. View Our Cradle to Cradle Certificate

Certified USDA BioPreferred

Litco’s molded wood pallets have earned the designation as a USDA Certified BioBased Product for using a high percentage of renewable, plant-based materials. They are eligible for the USDA BioPreferred program designation as a preferred product for the Federal Government to purchase because they exceed the minimum of 85% renewable, plant-based materials. View Our USDA BioBased Certification Letter

Recovery and Recycling

Litco International, Inc. is committed to ensuring that all Inca engineered molded wood products are easy on the environment. Litco’s Inca engineered molded wood pallets and core plugs are the first pallets and plugs to achieve the honor of Cradle to Cradle CertificationTM by McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry (MBDC). They are also a USDA Certified BioBased Product for having a high percentage of bio-based material content.

Inca molded wood products are designed for limited reuse and are not reparable. The following list includes two potential options to assist in avoiding the landfills when they have exceeded their useful life.

Recovery: The pickup and sorting of truckloads of used Inca molded wood pallets and core plugs in ‘like-new condition’ ultimately for resale and reuse. Litco’s availability of this service and the value placed on the products, if any, will vary depending on the location, product, size, condition and amount of desirable product.

Recycling: To avoid landfilling damaged Inca pallets and core plugs, a common international practice is to have your local pallet recycler take them along with your other wood waste. The material is useful for making products such as mulch, absorbents, animal bedding, composting and boiler fuel. Litco’s Inca wood fiber is clean, low moisture, and free of metal fasteners. It is a material of choice at a weight per load in the range of 19 tons and a 6,926 BTU/ton value.
