For those who are not familiar with pallets; a pallet is a flat structure that is used for shipping and transport. Pallets allow commercial goods and shipping containers to be shipped in a stable form by giving them support so they can be lifted by pallet trucks, forklifts and other jacking devices. Furthermore, pallets allow for efficiencies in storage and handling. Most pallets are made of wood but there are also ones that are made of plastic, metal, paper or recycled materials.
Depending on what they are used for, pallets are made many different. Check out the chart below to see how different types of pallets vary.
