Pallet boxes, also known as ‘bulk boxes’, are boxes which are made from corrugated cardboard, attached to wooden pallets. These boxes are primarily used for transporting products in bulk and you will often see these in your local supermarket, for instance. 

Pallet boxes sizes

These are large carboard boxes as they are built for a mass volume of goods. The standard size in the UK is 1200 x 1000mm and they are available in a number of pallet types and weight bearing capacities.. 

The cardboard material of these boxes makes them very lightweight, so they usually weigh only a few pounds. Here at Lesters Packaging, we tailor-make boxes for your company needs – you can customise various features of the pallet box, from sizing to logo design.

Advantages of Pallet Boxes

There are various advantages of pallet boxes – not only are they perfect transporting a large volume of goods, but other uses also include:

  • Stackable to save precious warehouse space
  • Cheaper than metal or timber alternatives
  • The front of boxes can be opened, which makes it easier for loading and unloading
  • Reduction in transit damage risk
  • Supply chain is optimised due to stackability 
  • Easy to assemble
  • Significantly reduces labour costs
  • Better for air circulation, which benefits fresh produce

How are pallet boxes made?

The base of the box is named as the ‘tray,’ which sits on the wooden pallet. The sleeves of the box face upward and is made open so that the box can have a lid, and be both opened and closed easily.
