The North American pallet industry is responding to the changing needs of its customers by offering fully independent pools of nine block pallets nationwide
. The core of this offering is the 9BLOC whitewood block pallet, which will be manufactured and repaired to exacting standards. Many companies have been and are being certified to manufacture pallets as of this release.

The 9BLOC industry network is comprised of independent, entrepreneurial pallet producers and recyclers. The NWPCA (National Wood Pallet & Container Association) states that there are over 4,000 pallet companies in the US, Canada and Mexico. 9BLOC™ is uniting and networking these companies to provide durable, high quality pallets. The pallets will move around the country in a cost per trip basis. This carefully coordinated network allows independent businesses to compete in the global supply chain, providing pallet solutions to a broad spectrum of industries throughout North America.
