Sizing is Critical!

Daniel Paterson discusses the benefits of understanding pallet sizing…

We all know what it is like when somebody in our organisation puts a request through and says I need some pallets please –  “can your order some for me?” – we go back and say “what size” – “just the standard ones” of course…

Sizing is critical.. -not only to ensure our products are handled securely but also to save cost and ensure we are shipping our goods the most cost effectively. Today, there is a whole range of pallet sizes available especially in the PLASTIC pallet offering ranging from a small quarter euro size (600x400mm) up to the standard (1200x1000mm) size and then on up to square sizing (1200x1200mm) which are especially designed to fit into steel shipping containers for exporting goods.

Establishing the need is critical – by getting the base pallet size right in relation to the size of the goods you are sending out ensures you are not paying money for more volumetric space than you need to – especially when air freighting.  Also, when using these great plastic pallets for display purposes in a retail environment, you want to ensure the sizing is as accurate as possible to ensure you are not wasting valuable floor space… and the great news is that you don’t need to keep going down the bespoke pallet route – the range available is BROAD and ever increasing..!
