About The Pallet Alliance

Pallet Alliance was founded in 1995 based on a simple vision – providing a pallet program tailored to each customer’s specific needs. Rather than simply selling pallets, Pallet Alliance provides custom pallet solutions for large, multi-site companies in the U.S. and Canada. Single-source accountability for design, integration, optimization and ongoing management differentiates Pallet Alliance from its competitors, providing collaborative, creative solutions tailored to efficiently meet each customer’s current and future requirements.

A culture of collaboration

Pallet Alliance believes in challenging the traditional customer-vendor relationship to create a collaborative partnership. This is achieved by looking at the customer’s complete supply chain picture, factoring in local demands with operations across the nation. The result? Exceeding customer expectations while optimizing cost, quality, and efficiency.

Pallet Alliance is committed to:

  • Evaluating all the factors that drive cost to bring maximum value
  • Balancing the needs of end users with pallet vendor capabilities
  • Questioning assumed limits and championing continuous improvement
  • Fostering a collaborative, empowering work culture
  • Considering the green dimension of our actions and minimizing our environmental impact
  • Embracing and promoting diversity in all business activities
