Custom Pallets & Skids
EXCEPTIONAL SUPPORT FOR TRANSPORTED LOADS
Purpose-Built Custom Pallets and Skids
Craters & Freighters Chicago can build custom wood pallets and skids for virtually anything that must be shipped. Sturdy skids and pallets are a great alternative to wood crates for items not needing more extensive packaging.
A pallet is a low, portable platform with or without sides. Pallets are used to store, ship, and move anything from raw materials to finished goods. Pallets or load bases are typically built of wood and can be designed to any specification in order to support loads of varying size and weight distribution.
- A skid is a platform supported by two or more parallel runners that raise the platform so that it is easier to lift with mechanical equipment.
- A skid differs from a pallet or load base in that it is typically higher and does not have additional cross members and stringers as support below the runners.
- Skids are used to stabilize loads and help with storage, handling, and transportation.
