Pallets are of standard dimensions
Euro Pallet 800x1200mm.
ISO Standard Pallet 1000x1200mm.
- 800 x 1200 mm (CEN Standard - also called a Euro Pallet) used mainly for retail business
- 1000 x 1200 mm (ISO Standard) used mainly for industrial use
- 1200 x 1200 mm is also used mainly for vegetable retail business
The standard European pallet size of 800 x 1200 mm is derived from the standard transport package size with base dimensions of 400 x 600 mm, which is the basic module of all European freight transport and warehousing. The standard package size is derived from the concept that the dimensions are such that loads can be easily lifted and carried by an average man.
Although the external dimensions of standardised European pallet loads fit well with the internal dimensions of trailers and semi trailers, they do not fit well with the internal dimensions of ISO containers. That is one of the reasons why ISO containers are not used very much for intra European transport.
