20ft Container Holding 10 Standard Pallets

20ft Container Holding 10 Standard Pallets

The amount of pallets you can pack tightly and securely in your container will depend on the size of the container you intend to transport your goods in, and the pallets you have available.

There are currently two types of pallets that are widely used, ‘EUR Pallets’, also known as ‘Euro-Pallets’, and ‘Standard Pallets’. Euro pallets are usually the most widely used pallet, and it is estimated that 450-500 million are in circulation across the globe.

Both Euro and Standard Pallets are 1200mm in length, however a Euro Pallet is 800mm in width in comparison to a Standard Pallet which is 1000mm wide. You can find a helpful guide to the main differences of these two pallets by clicking here.

How many pallets can you fit inside a 10ft, 20ft, 30ft, 40ft & 45ft container?

From the internal dimensions of our standard 10ft, 20ft, 30ft, 40ft and 45ft containers we can calculate exactly how many pallets can fit inside each container comfortably and safely to optimise your shipping space.

The internal spaces of 10ft, 20ft, 30ft, 40ft and 45ft containers have been listed below:

10ft Containers

For a 10ft container, 4 Standard Pallets can be shipped, whilst 5 Euro Pallets can be held. 10ft containers are not usually used for ocean freight due to them being one of the smallest shipping containers, making 20ft, 40ft, and 45ft options more popular transport methods.

30ft Containers

30ft containers can accommodate up to 14 Standard Pallets, and 18 Euro Pallets. 30ft containers are a great transporting alternative if a 20ft container is too small, and a 40ft container is too large for the desired amount of cargo you need to ship.

40ft Containers 

40ft standard containers fit up to 20 Standard Pallets, and 24 Euro Pallets. Due to Euro Pallets being 200mm narrower, they can be positioned lengthwise in a 40ft container, whilst Standard Pallets cannot.

40ft containers can also come in a ‘pallet wide’ option, although we currently do not offer this size, in which 24 Standard Pallets can securely and safely fit in the unit, whilst 30 Euro Pallets can be transported.

Similarly, 45ft containers also come in the pallet wide option, holding up to 33 Euro pallets and 26 Standard Pallets. However, a 45ft standard container holds 24 Standard Pallets and 27 Euro Pallets. Currently, we only supply 45ft pallet wide containers and do not offer a standard 45ft option.
