What is a Pallet?

A pallet is a flat, wooden platform used as a transport structure for goods. It is designed to support and carry unit loads of freight.

Pallets are an essential aspect of pallet logistics, which involves managing and transporting pallets throughout the supply chain. They are typically moved using pallet jacks, forklifts, or other handling equipment. Pallets, including wooden and plastic, come in various sizes and types and are used to optimise storage and transportation efficiency. Using pallets in logistics helps reduce the risk of damage to goods during transportation and improves the speed and efficiency of loading and unloading processes.
