Here are the specifications to follow if your FCL shipment will be palletized.

Pallet Specifications

General requirements and dimensions

  • Use standard or EUR-pallets for stuffing
  • Use GMA Grade B or higher, 40" x 48" / 1 m x 1.25m 4-way access, wood pallets
  • Any single pallet must not be taller than 72"
  • Pallets can be double stacked for a max height of 100"
  • Max weight per pallet: 1,500 lbs. / 680.4 kg

Other considerations

  • GMA Grade A pallets are required for grocery items
  • CHEP pallets meeting GMA Grade A and B industry standards are acceptable
  • Do not ship items on PECO pallets, as these cannot be moved using a standard pallet jack
  • Plastic pallets will be rejected by Amazon

Securing the pallets

  • Carton boxes must not have more than 1" overhand on either side of the pallet
  • Use load bars and tension to secure the pallets (recommended but not required):
