Pallets can be made of wood, polyethylene, steel, aluminum, cardboard, or other materials. Loads may be bundled and secured to the pallet using straps or stretch wrap. Four-way pallets can be lifted and moved with a pallet truck or forklift truck from any side. Pallets may be color-coded for identifying and segregating different types of loads, or to indicate load capacity. The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) recognizes six standard pallet sizes, with the most common size in North America being 48 x 40 inches (W x D). Pallets without a bottom deck are called skids. Pallets can be used in warehouses, stockrooms, manufacturing and shipping facilities, and other industrial environments.Vestil manufactures materials handling equipment, including hoists and trolleys, jib and gantry cranes, loading dock equipment, and storage solutions.
