Pallet dimensions affect how much freight will fit on a given truck, which factors into your shipping costs. Get helpful information on pallet types here. We understand that pallet sizes vary across regions and so CHEP pallets are designed and manufactured to meet the requirements of the industries and countries in which our customers operate. If shipping goods overseas see our accurate standard pallet size dimensions for Europe, Asia, Australia & North America. Using the Australian pallet in 20′ or 40′ foot ISO containers will mean a loss of some floor space.
In cases where the shipment is palletized, the dimensions of the pallet determine the cubic dimensions. The dimensions of the EURO pallet conform to the specifications of the International Union of Railways (UIC) and to the specifications of the European Pallet Association (EPAL). EURO pallet A – is of light colour, clean, free of moist mould, all feet have sharp edges without chipping, and the stringers are not damaged. In North America, the standard pallet size is 40 x 48 (W X L).Other industries normally have their own standards. These include;
To determine how many cubic feet a certain piece will be multiply the length x width x height of the piece. After the items are stacked we will measure the length, width, and height of the stacked pallet at its greatest points. To determine the cubic dimensions of a nonpalletized shipment, measure the shipment’s height, width and length. Your Freight Density (in pounds per cubic foot) To determine the cubic dimensions of a palletized shipment, combine the pallet dimensions with the shipment. Determine the pallet dimensions in inches. For each dimension, measure at the longest point, rounding each measurement to the next whole number (e.
Calculate: Cargo Density
Divide the weight (in pounds) of the shipment by the cubic feet. Reference 1208 CC. Dimensions Ext: L.1.200, A.800, h.145 mm. Weight: 8,200 Kgs.: 850 Kgs.: 3.400 Kgs. Colour: White, Grey, Red-Brown. Material: HDPE. Pallet. Pallet Dimensions A: 110. Pallet Dimensions B: 225. Pallet. Pallet Dimensions A: 110. Pallet Dimensions B: 230. Carrying Capacity of Containers (in cubic feet) The initial container sizes were the 20 footer and the 40 footer, dimensions that were agreed upon in the 1960s and became an ISO standard. The rationale behind this initiative is that it would allow two of the standard European pallets to be loaded in containers side by side as existing containers are based on North American pallet dimensions.
