Pallets serve more purpose than just carrying the loads, as they can also protect loads and supply chains through which they travel. We offer pallets in different sizes for different specifications. Read more to know about Gregory's Pallets specs.

Pallet specs; a pallet is a portable platform, usually made of wood, to facilitate the movement and storage of various goods. But they also protect products from damage. We tend to take them for granted, but they are crucial for the everyday functioning of many industries.

It was during World War II that stacking goods on pallets and moving those pallets with lift trucks became a popular handling technique of the US military. After the war, this method spread rapidly to every industry, owing to its utility, and today the pallet is a fundamental component of most modern materials handling systems.

A frame of a block pallet is made of three stringer boards supported by blocks of wood (see illustration).

Block pallets usually have nine blocks: one at each corner, one on each side, and one in the center of the pallet. Most such pallets are usually true four-way pallets, meaning they permit forklift and pallet truck entry on all four sides.

Stringer and block pallets have a series of bottom boards underneath the frame, and pallets with the same number of boards on the top and bottom are called reversible pallets, as they can be used with either side up.

Pallets with no bottom boards are known as skids.
