The dimensions on transport means, shelves in retail shops, storage equipment, handling equipment, containers and swap bodies are both regionally standardised in order to optimise the utilisation of space. Unfortunately these standards are different around the World.
Europe has a basic module on 400 x 600 mm which is able to utilise the two pallet standards:
- EUR Pallet at 800 x 1200 mm with 4 basic modules
- UK Pallet at 1000 x 1200 mm with 5 basic modules
Also storage, handling and retail shop equipment are optimised to this standard module.
