40x48

In General, the U.S. Grocery Industry (GMA) uses stringer style pallets which measure 40x48 (48” X 40”). Something to note is that some companies in the food industry have begun to request plastic pallets. These have some issues including price. Currently, plastic pallets can cost as much as four times more than wooden pallets. Recently, the use of flame retardant chemicals in plastic pallets has raised concerns and Oregon has banned their use in the shipments of food products all together.

The Chemical Industry uses the following sizes: 40x48 (48" X 40"), 52x44 (52" X 44") and 45x45 (45" X 45"). They must be able to support one metric ton.
