Costco Display Guidelines & Requirements
TPH Global builds and ships over 40,000 pallet displays to Costco for brand managers of Consumer Packaged Goods Companies (CPGs), and we also provide the packaging for most of them. Our clients sell footwear, apparel, socks, gloves, housewares, and packaged goods just to name a few.
Costco merchandises pre-packed, block pallet displays in the U.S. on 48″ x 40″ CHEP, PECO and iGPS pallets. Outside of the U.S., Costco requires 1,200 mm x 1,000 mm pallets. They expect product to be retail ready with the least amount of extraneous material. In all cases, the vendor must use appropriate structural components for the pallet to survive the rigors of shipping and handling.
TPH’s project teams are fully trained in Costco’s requirements and know the questions to ask so we can be sure to deliver your products on time without damage or issues.
