Did you know there are currently almost 2 billion in circulation in the U.S. alone? Pallets are used to transport and store almost every product you come into contact with, which is why there are countless different types and sizes of pallets available. At Dominion Pallet, we can create custom pallets to fit the needs of even the most obscure products, but the most common pallet sizes are:
|Pallet Dimensions||Industries Commonly Using|
|48″x40″||Grocery and Food Services|
|48″x42″||Beverage and Chemicals|
|42″x42″||Paint & Telecommunications|
|40″x48″||Military & Cement|
It should be noted that, when referring to pallet size, the stringer length is listed first, followed by the pallet width.
Pallet types are almost as varied as pallet sizes, as illustrated by 1001Pallets:
When choosing which pallet best fits the needs of your company, it is critical that you consider the pallet performance requirements needed, such as strength, stiffness and durability. Simply put, strength is a measure of a pallet’s breaking capacity. Stiffness is how much bend a pallet gives under load. And durability measures how long a pallet is expected to last when subjected to normal wear and tear.
Choosing a the right pallet is crucial to avoiding accidents, reducing shipping costs and ensuring smooth transport of your products.
