Pallets are wooden skids that provide a strong foundation for stacking boxes of personal effects on to them. The normal size is 3′ x 4′ and when boxes are stacked can hold on average up to 60 CFT. However if the boxes are perfectly symmetrical, it makes it easy to stack and can increase the volume up to 90-100 CFT.
Palletization is the process of stacking your boxes on pallets, shrink wrapping them and fastening them with bands. This helps keep your boxes together and provides additional protection to your shipment. It also makes it possible to load the pallets on a container using forklifts in the warehouse.
