doubleEco - Corrugated Cardboard Pallets: economically efficient, ecologically welcome

The freight mate that is both economically efficient and ecologically welcome


Its time has come

There is worldwide demand for greater environmental responsibility. There is need to reduce the carbon footprint of our exports. And there is always a call to lower costs.

The doubleEco corrugated cardboard pallet will deliver on all counts while safely transporting your exports.

Looks brown, made green

doubleEco corrugated board pallets are made from recycled and plantation sourced papers – as typically used in corrugated cartons. All glues are water-based and non-toxic. This will make doubleEco pallets welcome in most countries as they can be readily recycled into paper again and present no disposal contamination like materials used in other pallets.

Without any wood components in doubleEco pallets, insects and other harmful organisms won’t be transported with your product. (In the US alone pests imported in wooden packaging have caused over $1 billion in eco-damage.)

Overseas customers and consumers are increasingly insisting on the most environmentally sound packaging and transport options available. doubleEco pallets simply ARE your best option.

Built strong

doubleEco pallets are made from multiple layers of corrugated board glue-laminated together to be as strong as you need them to be - they can be customised to suit your specific load requirements. The top and bottom decks are separated by 9 bonded pillars, also of corrugated cardboard, designed to allow 4 way entry by forklifts and jiffy trolleys.

Built smart

Being light and smooth doubleEco pallets minimise injury risk to handlers on your site and right through to the end user. The risk and cost of product damage is also reduced as doubleEco pallets have no nails and cannot splinter.

Product damage from moisture egress, as occurs with wood, is eliminated as water is removed from corrugated card during manufacture making doubleEco pallets naturally dry.


In most cases, the price of doubleEco cardboard pallets will be comparable or lower than an export wood pallet. The other additional benefits make a clear case for using doubleEco cardboard pallets for your exports.
