Standard pallet sizes.

Pallets are portable platforms used to package items for freight alrayaheen cargo. There are two pallet types: stringer pallets and block pallets. Stringer pallets are built with 2” x 4” wood, plastic or metal “stringers.” Block pallets are similar, except they are made with individual blocks.

Pallet dimensions help determine how much can be placed on a given truck, so they factor into freight carriers’ alrayaheen cargo quotes. While the standard pallet size is 40” x 48”, confirm the pallet dimensions for each shipment to ensure an accurate quote and to avoid costly adjustments.

Pallets can be referred to by their entry type. Below are the most common pallet types.

  • Two-way pallets: Pallets with forklift openings on only two ends. Also referred to as “unnotched” pallets.
  • Partial four-way entry pallets: Pallets with standard forklift openings on two ends and smaller side openings on the remaining ends.
  • Four-way entry pallets: Pallets with forklift openings on all sides for full accessibility.

While the standard pallet size is 40” x 48”, confirm the pallet sizes for each shipment to ensure an accurate quote and to avoid costly adjustments.
