Pallet Information
It might be useful to know that pallets are portable platforms made of wood, plastic or metal. They are designated to make it easier to transport goods whether boxed goods or just a heavy piece of cargo that may need a forklift, pallet jack or front loader to move. More often in shipping, we can observe the wooden pallets with slats that allow for a forklift, etc to fit underneath and lift the cargo easily for stacking and more stable shipping. These have a standard size of 40"x48" and are many times swapped out when shipping in order to be reused.

- When a shipment is weighed, it should be weighed on the pallet it will be shipped on so the actual weight is calculated for costs.
- Dimensions should also be taken with the pallet in mind. This is will help determine where the pallet will fit in to the shipment whether via air, ocean or land.
- When stuffing a container, it is important to use these weights to balance out the container for less shifting in transit. This is especially important with a load that does not fill the container completely.
