Pallets – An Industry Essentials

The rental and purchase of pallets (or skids) are often overlooked or under-appreciated detail. Pallets, on the other hand, are useful and, in many circumstances, the only item that businesses require to achieve standards and succeed.

Basic personalized pallets are made from heat-treated wood products and formed in the shape of a box. Each pallet has a specially measured opening to allow for easy transport by forklift, pallet jack, front loader, or other equipment.

A load is often secured to a pallet using strapping, stretch, or shrink-wrap for loading. The square shape of the pallet ensures the stability of the load and prevents it from tipping over. Other dimensions are used to meet warehouse specifications or to accommodate openings for loading dock doors, train car doors, or other storage containers. 

Pallets can also be designed to fit through standard doorways when required. Pallet companies can custom design pallets to meet the needs of their customers accordingly.

Pallets were originally designed to help with the import and export of various goods internationally. The army benefited greatly from the introduction of 'palletization' as keeping goods on pallets freedmen for other services. As the need for safe, reliable cargo transportation grew, so did the pallet industry. The pallet industry has now become a standard for shipment, cargo transportation, and international export and import of goods.

The use of pallets has been established for the following purposes:

• Storage of goods (ie godown, shed, stockyard)

• Safe Transportation

• To meet food safety standards

• Objectives to Stack
