    • The Pallet Design System (PDS)

      The Pallet Design System™ (PDS) is a product specification tool, an engineering design tool, a professional marketing tool, and an educational tool – all contained in an easy to use software package developed for the wood pallet industry. Since its introduction in 1984, PDS has developed a highly respected reputation throughout the material handling industry.

      Each new version of PDS incorporates the latest data, engineering, and technologies which result from NWPCA's continuous program of research and development. Millions of dollars have been expended on PDS, not only for software development, but on research toward increased understanding of the relationships between the design and performance of wood pallets and the entire unit load.

      In addition, PDS licensees are now certified under the USDA's BioPreferred® program and can put the USDA Certified Biobased label on your product.
