Why Choose a 48 x 48 Plastic Pallet?

Here’s When to Consider a 48 x 48 Plastic Pallet

As you know by now, plastic pallets come in all shapes and sizes. Choosing one to fit your needs can be a real challenge. That’s why the Pallet Experts here at One Way Solutions are her to help.

Our popular 48 x 48 plastic pallet is a great option when you want a larger stackable base for your product. It provides more square unit inches for larger shipments than our smaller pallet sizes.

48 x 48 Drum Pallets

48 x 48 Pallets make excellent drum pallets. A 55 gallon drum, roughly 23″ in diameter, exceeds the standard 40″ x 48″ & 45″ x 48″ plastic pallet footprints when 4 drums (arranged in a 2 x 2 grid) are palletized.

The 46″ width of two drums hangs off the edge of a 45″ side of the pallet, creating an unstable and potentially unsafe situation.

48 x 48 sized pallets are also used for shipping 5 gallon drums.

We recommend doing the math on your current truckload capacity if the larger 48 x 48 plastic pallet size could make sense for future shipments.

Point Of Purchase Display Pallets (POP Pallets)

The 48 x 48 pallet size is also popular for modular Point Of Purchase Displays.

Nestable and Stackable 48 x 48 Plastic Pallets

The most common and affordable 48 x 48 plastic pallets are either our nestable or stackable plastic pallets with a solid deck.

This brand new option is stackable, made in the USA, and has 3-runners to add extra stability for larger loads.
