Our regular customers know the information we'll ask of them to design pallets that meet their shipping needs. However if you are new to ordering a shipment of wooden pallets, here are some of the questions we'll be asking when you call.
What Size Pallet?
For example 48 X 40. 48 represents the length, or runner length. The 40 represents the width, or the decking length. Remember that is just and example. We manufacturer wood pallets of all sizes.
Two way or four way pallet?
Two way means the pallet's stringers will be solid, and four way means the stringers will have notches for forklift access from all four sides of the pallet.
How much weight will you put on this pallet?
This will determine the design of the pallet and the thickness of the boards.
Will the pallet be used for international shipping?
We recommend heat treating all pallets that are shipped overseas to prevent any hold ups in port.
There are other things that go into designing the perfect pallet for your load, but if you know those three things on your first call I am sure we can figure out the rest together.
