English translation:Europallets without overhang
Explanation:
There are two major types of pallets, "Europallet" and standard pallets.
The size of the "Europallets" is 800mm x 1,200mm per piece while
The size of standard pallets is 1,000mm x 1,200mm per piece.
A 20' container can hold eleven "Europallets" in one tier or nine to ten standard pallets in one tier
A 40' container can hold 23-24 "Europallets" in one tier or 20-21 standard pallets in one tier.
Wooden pallets must be strong enough to allow storage of three tiers when loaded.
Carton boxes must not overhang the edges of the pallets.

5-Down: A container size that will allow up
to 5 identical containers per layer to fit a
GMA 48 in x 40 in pallet without overhang.

Product Stacked on Pallets (Only When Authorized)
In certain cases (Bargain Books, as an example), stacking books directly on the pallet is preferred; this will be specified by the purchasing arrangement or purchase order when applicable.
When product is stacked (loose) on a pallet, the block and tier method (without overhang) must be used to build the pallet. The top, bottom, and edges must be protected by cardboard and stretch wrapped with three to five layers, including the pallet.
