The perfect pallet isn’t just about stability and protection. Getting it right helps avoid additional costs. As our charges are based on a combination of weight and volume, anything that takes extra space or makes your pallet non-stackable could incur surcharges.
Columns ensure maximum stacking strength. If the contents are rigid, you can use 'bricklayer style' for increased stability.
Items should fit squarely on the pallet, without hanging over the edge. Although we do accept overhanging pallets, shipments that fit on the pallet are preferred since this reduces risk of damage.
A level top surface makes it strong, compact and stackable. Non-stackable pallets will incur a surcharge.
Use strapping and/or stretch wrapping to hold items in place on the pallet. Wrapping should include the pallet itself.
Pallets are stacked for transport, so labels need to be affixed to the side, not the top.
Your packaging needs to meet our minimum requirements.
