the transport pallete
What is a pallet?
This handling accessory is intended to group together the maximum number of packages on a small surface. Better known as "Palletization", it is ideal for speeding up handling, storage and transport. Grouping more packages on a pallet allows a higher filling rate for carriers. It is capable of supporting several tons of merchandise. The support of the pallet is generally done from below. There are several variations of the pallet but most often we find the wooden pallet with two entrances reinforced by a central chevron.
It is the most used material thanks to its resistance over time, its price. The wood used is pine, spruce, Douglas fir or fir.
