Note: This page is a general guide to pallet sizes.  You should consult with your pallet manufacturer, your clothing warehouse or your shipping company to verify the proper sizes that are being utilized for your product.  Again, above is only a guide.  This does not mean that these are the exact and only options.

If you want to save room in the shipping containers, you may want to think about the option of slip sheets for your transportation needs.  Their are pros and cons to evaluate between the use of pallets and slip sheets, but it may be a good idea to investigate all options.
