Building the perfect pallet

Updated: Jan 5, 2023

Not all pallets are built the same nor do they all have the same use. Some pallets are great for wide-forked forklifts while others are limited to only pallet jackets, that's where the perfect pallet comes in. Known as the 48x40 standard wooden pallet, 30% of the world's industry uses this pallet due to its diverse capabilities. The quality that makes this pallet truly the best pallet is its ability to be used both in industries where there is a demand for wide forklifts also in sectors where standard pallets are restricted.

The 48x40 Standard wooden pallet has been used since 1930 as it was the beginning of modern pallet making. Forty-eight inches long and 40 inches high it provides the same amount of space as a 48x40x32 wooden pallet but allows for even greater movement than the standard wooden pallets. Where you would use a standard wooden pallet you would use the 48x40 wide forklift-capable pallet. This enables faster and easier movement of materials for these types of forklifts. In industries where it is not possible to use a wide forklift, rack, or hand truck these pallets can still be used as they still pack the same amount of wood and board as the 48x40x32.
