Premier Pallets, Inc. was founded in 1993 and services the entire U.S. The two principals of Premier Pallets, Michele and Scott Shaw, have combined over 30 years of experience in the pallet industry in both sales and production capacities. Both Michele and Scott have spent virtually all of their professional careers in the pallet and lumber industry. Their understanding of the composition and therefore the end user’s needs in pallets has allowed Premier Pallets to change with the times and address specific requirements and needs as requested. Principal offices are in Atlanta and Tampa, while servicing Miami, Jacksonville, and Orlando.

Current customers include freight carriers, citrus processors and packing houses, warehousing operations, food service and manufacturers, agricultural concerns as well as a variety of industrial manufacturers. Our customer base is spread uniformly throughout the US with the Southeastern corridor led by Tampa, Florida and Atlanta, Georgia, which are particularly high demand areas. We service all areas of Florida, Georgia, the Southeast as well as the continental U.S. With Tampa and Atlanta being located in the heart of the Southeastern hub of the United States, it stands to reason that Premier Pallets has its principal offices there. In the logistics business, geography is important. Premier features Miami, Jacksonville, and Orlando areas covering the major cities in Florida.
Premier Pallets provides recycled, new, and re-manufactured pallets to our customers from facilities throughout the United States. For new pallet customers we can provide hardwood, kiln-dried southern yellow pine, green pine, or a combination of hardwood and pine. We also provide certified, heat treated pallets that meet international wood packaging export requirements. In addition to export pallets we also provide expendable pallets for one-way trips. Our core relationships in the industry allow us to enjoy advantageous price points that can be shared with our customer base.
