A pallet is a platform on which cartons are stacked on and then used for shipment or movement as a group. Pallets may be made of wood or composite materials. In the context of logistics, pallets are an important part of the shipping process, as they allow for the easy and efficient movement of large groups of items. When shipping products via pallets, it is important to ensure that the pallets are properly secured and labeled, so that they can be easily tracked and traced throughout the shipping process.

Also, in the context of logistics, a pallet can be a unit load device that helps standardize the process and ease of handling goods during warehousing and transportation.

  • A pallet is typically made of wood, plastic, or metal. It has a top surface and a bottom surface to support the goods being transported on it.
  • The most common size of a pallet is 40” x 48”, but there are many other sizes available as well.
