What does pallet shipping include?

When you ship with Mail Boxes Etc. Pallets, you have an overview of the current shipping status throughout the entire process. Because just as with parcel shipping, the dispatch of a pallet should be traceable via shipment tracking - so that you are always informed about where your goods are.

In addition, it is important that each shipment is tailored to your individual requirements. Therefore, we also offer various additional services. If you are sending a pallet, you will receive the same services from us as for all other - smaller - shipments:

  • Collection on the day of your choice
  • Transparent shipment tracking
  • Safe and fast delivery

What is relevant for pallet shipping?

In order to successfully ship pallets, a number of factors must be taken into account. In this way, each consignment of goods can be optimally adapted to the respective requirements. In a conversation with our experts, you can find out which options are relevant for your shipment:

  • Which pallet fits best?
  • What packaging is needed?
  • Do the goods need to be secured?
  • How and when should the consignment be collected/delivered?
  • What additional services do you want?

What types of pallets are there?

For successful shipping planning, it is also important which type of pallet you choose. The individual pallets are each suitable for certain goods and transport routes. But the choice of pallet type is also crucial for cost calculation. You will find more information on this below.

Send one-way pallets

If pallet shipping is to be calculated cheaply, disposable pallets are often the first choice. They are made of plastic, wood or corrugated cardboard. Since they are primarily designed for one-time use, these pallets are not as stable as e.g. Euro pallets and are therefore not suitable for heavy loads. On the other hand, disposable pallets can be used in various sizes at comparatively low cost, as they are not limited to standard dimensions. This makes them suitable for smaller loads and short transport routes with few overruns.

Shipping euro pallets

In most cases, Euro pallets are used. These are standardised pallets that are very stable and can be used several times. The EPAL seal on the pallets indicates that quality assurance has been carried out according to the specifications of the European Pallet Association. The dimensions of the Euro pallets are:

  • 120 cm in length
  • 80 cm in width
  • 15 cm in height

The pallets are not purchased by you for your goods transport. There is an international lending system. The pallets are borrowed for transport and a deposit is paid. The amount of the deposit depends on the condition of the individual pallets.

Send lattice boxes

Small goods and pressure-sensitive packaging in particular are transported in wire mesh boxes. The goods are enclosed in a steel mesh box and during transport this ensures that individual items do not fall off and get lost or damaged.


What advantages does pallet shipping offer?

Mail Boxes Etc. pallet shipping includes all types of pallets. With us you can safely and quickly send a Euro pallet, as well as disposable or plastic pallets. Pallet shipping offers many advantages for your goods shipments: 

  • Pallets protect your goods from damage and thus also from avoidable complaints.
  • Space can be saved with the help of pallets. In concrete terms, this also means: shipping with pallets = keeping costs low.
  • Pallets help you to make maximum use of storage space, which can also increase cost efficiency.

No matter whether you are shipping a one-way pallet or whether you are using reusable pallets: Contact us and you will receive individual advice that is precisely tailored to your needs and your goods portfolio.
