Pallets are essential in supply chain and logistics as they facilitate the efficient movement of goods, allowing for easy loading and unloading of shipments.

The standard UK pallet size is 120cm x 100cm x 220cm. This includes varying weight capacities and stacking variables e.g Micro, Quarter, Half, Full.

What is the difference between a standard pallet and a Euro pallet?
