Stringer Pallet

Stringer pallets are the most commonly used pallet. Stringers are used to support the load, and are encompassed by top and bottom deckboards. Stringer pallet specifications are first noted by the length of the stringers, and noted second by the length of the deckboards.

The most common size stringer pallet measures 48” x 40”, and is also commonly referred to as a GMA pallet, or standard grocery store pallet. This is a standard created by the Grocery Manufacturer Association (GMA), and these hardwood stringer pallets are used widely for a variety of consumer products.

While stringer pallets are the most commonly used pallets, and the GMA pallet is standard, there are a variety of variables to consider. These include:

  • Grocery Pallet (GMA)

    Gorcery Store Pallet (GMA)

    Number and size of stringers

  • Number and size of top and bottom deckboards
    If there are no bottom deckboards, it is considered a skid.

  • Notched Stringers
  • Chamfered deckboards
  • 2-way entry (partial entry)
