What is a block pallet?
A block pallet is a strong pallet and is often made of wood.
The pallet consists of several parts, namely the lower deck, the between deck, the upper deck and the blocks that connect the different parts to each other.
The block pallet might also be referred to as the industrial pallet or 4-way pallet.
Block pallet size: what are the dimensions?
The block pallet dimensions are quite large compared to other pallets, such as the euro pallet or the mini pallet. Because of its size, the block pallet is very suitable for sending larger goods, such as a desk.
What are the block pallet dimensions? The size of block pallets are 100 × 120 cm.
Usually a maximum of 26 block pallets fit in a trailer of an average sized truck. For most trucks we then refer to a full truckload. Do you want to ship less than 26 industrial pallets? Then you can choose for LTL or groupage transport.
Block pallet weight: how much can block pallets carry?
A block pallet can carry up to 1000 kg of freight. There is no other pallet that is able to carry this much weight.
Although the maximum load capacity of industrial pallets is 1000 kg, it is recommended to not ship more than 875 kg of goods per pallet. This is due to the fact that otherwise the maximum weight a truck can handle might be exceeded.
Does the block pallet weigh more than 875 kg? Then the number of loading meters is automatically increased on the Quicargo platform. Want to know more about loading meters and calculating the pallet loading? Find all the information you need on our page of the loading meter calculation tool!
