    Northwest Hardwoods Pallet Team

    We asked our customers what we could do to improve our performance. After listening to their responses, we developed our “pallet team,” a combination of sales and customer service. We focus on value by providing our customers with current market information and full-time sales and customer service.

    Transportation

    A sale may start with the order, but it’s not complete until you receive your load, in your yard, on time. That’s the mission of our in-house pallet transportation specialist, who works every day to make sure you receive products when you want them and in the most efficient manner. Three of our alder facilities are located on the Union Pacific and/or Burlington Northern rail lines and have truck-loading capabilities as well, which means we have transportation options available to suit every need.
