Save Money, Storage Space, and Maintenance Time with American Alternatives – The Durable Alternative to Wood Pallets

The Pallet Industry Evolution Begins Here

Are you challenged with the storage and maintenance of wood pallets? Tired of dealing with injuries from rusty nails, sharp edges and splinters?

Consider adding American Alternatives pallets and box systems to your production and material handing process. Begin to standardize the ways things move inside and outside your facility. And while you are at it, help protect and preserve the environment for future generations by leveraging wood pallet alternatives.

American Alternatives designs, develops and produces innovative approaches to stack and ship heavy products using 100% recyclable corrugated fiberboard rather than wood. The RPT Pallet can hold up to 3,000 lbs, making is a strong and capable replacement for tradition wood pallets. The RPT Box System also supports up to 3,000 lbs., and provides additional protection with a lid unlike wood pallet supports.

The idea for American Alternatives products was conceived by Rory Poole more than 15 years ago. Today, American Alternatives products are welcomed in aerospace and manufacturing plants, warehouses and dry docks across the globe as the alternative to cumbersome, sometimes dangerous and heavy wood pallets.

Going Green

Protecting the environment for our future generations is so critical these days, especially with the amount of unnecessary waste being produced daily.

The pallet industry was due for a big change — and it has arrived!

  • A pallet is a flat surface that increases handling and storage efficiency
  • More than 2 billion wood pallets are in use in the United States right now
  • Every year approximately a half billion pallets are made
  • Broken pallets are an unwanted nuisance and fill up landfills
  • Pallets exhaust natural resources, such as trees and forests
