PALLET

A portable platform on which goods can be moved, stacked, and stored, especially with the aid of a forklift.  A pallet (sometimes called a skid) is a flat transport structure that supports goods in a stable fashion while being lifted by a forklift, pallet jack, front loader or other jacking device.  A pallet is the structural foundation of a unit load which allows handling and storage efficiencies.
