The pallet is a wooden (rarely plastic) crate that simplifies freight transportation and allows shippers to group several little parcels into one pallet. There are two types of pallets. First is a stinger, and it is the most common one. However, it can be accessed only from two sides. As an alternative to the stinger, the second type, block pallet, allows access for forklifts from any angle.

You must prepare your freight and the pallet before shipping. Thus, you will ensure safe transportation for your commodities.

  • All your goods should be packed inside sturdy boxes
  • Properly stack boxes; heavy boxes on the bottom, lighter on the top
  • Use shrink wrap to secure the pallet with boxes
  • If necessary, use straps to secure the load

After you have prepared your pallet, you contact the carrier company that specializes in pallet delivery. Also, you can work with a pallet distribution network. Which is a cooperation of several companies that work with palletized freight.

Pallet delivery is beneficial for several reasons:

  • Safety. Pallets are carried only by forklifts, so there is less chance of your goods being damaged while handled manually.
  • Cost. Palletized shipping is more cost-efficient, especially when you need to transport large items like engines.
  • Availability. Pallets are pretty cheap, and you can craft them yourself. Also, it is easy to find a carrier to take care of your freight.
