Our container pallets: a precise, space-saving fit
Make optimal use of the cargo compartment in the oversea container using our container pallets. Take a look at our container stowage plans! To show you just how space-saving the container pallets from INKA-Paletten can really be in ISO-containers, we have created a few examples for you.
The Euro pallet, more frequently know as the EPAL pallet, is probably the most frequently used variety in the European pallet world. With dimensions of 800 x 1200 mm, they precisely fit in European trucks which normally have an interior width of 2450 mm. Whether three pallets along or two pallets across – the truck can be ideally loadedOur container pallets: a precise, space-saving fit

Optimal use of space with container pallets
However when it comes to unloading overseas containers, so-called ISO-containers, the interior dimensions are smaller than in our trucks. In order to facilitate the loading of container ships, the exterior widths have been standardised for both 40-foot and 20-foot containers. Depending on wall design, an interior width of just 2.30 – 2.36 loading space remains here. As a result, it is impossible to optimally load a container using Euro format pallets. For this purpose, our container pallets are best used, namely compressed wood chip pallets in the two container formats of 760 x 1140 mm or 1140 x 1140 mm. If your product can be packed into these dimensions, you are left with container pallets that use the space available optimally. If a length of 1200 mm is required, try to use INDUSTRIE format pallets. In the 1000 x 1200 mm format, somewhat more space is left unused in the container than with the container pallets, but this is still a significant improvement when compared with EPAL pallets (800 x 1200).

Container pallets made of compressed wood chips do not need to be especially treated for export shipments. In accordance with IPPC-ISPM15  "processed wood" must neither be treated nor marked. Our container pallets made from compressed wood fall within this definition, killing two birds with one stone!
