Alder Pallets Take Better Care of Your Cargo

Alder Pallet Benefits

Why Choose an Alder Pallet?

Durability: Alder wood has a higher durability quality than softwood, making Alder pallet stock more resistant to wear and tear, reducing costs over time by decreasing the need for frequent pallet repair or replacement.

Deflection: Alder has excellent strength when placed in racking that supports only the outside edge of a pallet (deflection), making them safer, more reliable and less prone to damage your cargo.

Consistency: Alder Pallets are manufactured specifically for use in pallets, not re-manufactured from downgraded lineal softwood boards, ensuring consistent quality and dimensions for automated handling systems.

Flexibility: Alder is particularly well-suited to applications on uneven surfaces, making it a safer choice for industry as failure can lead to load collapse.

Sustainability: Alder locks up more carbon for the lifetime of the pallet, making it a greener choice than softwood pallets. NWH utilizes third party certification organizations, ensuring that our Alder is sourced responsibly.

Cleanliness: New Alder Pallets manufactured by NWH’s customers have not been in other facilities or used by other industries, reducing the risk of contamination and damage to products. 


Choosing the right pallet stock is critical when it comes to ensuring the safe and reliable transportation of your products. While softwood pallets may seem like a cost-effective option, they can fall short in terms of durability, sustainability, and consistency. That’s why more and more businesses are turning to Alder pallets as a smarter, stronger, and a greener solution.
