Pallet Size Guide 2022

You might have noticed that there are a wide range of pallet sizes available. However, there are thankfully not as many pallet sizes as there once was. This is due to regional and global organisations now standardising pallet sizes by application and region. But you will still need to be sure you are using the right pallet for your application, be that transportation via container trucks, or airfreight to European countries.

 

We have compiled all the FAQ’s when it comes to Pallets. But this guide will show you the most common pallet sizes you may come across and need for your business.
