Skid: a pallet that has no bottom boards (also known as a “single deck” pallet) that cannot be used when turned upside down, either because it has no bottom boards or has a limited number of bottom boards
Reversible: a pallet that has deck boards spaced identically on the top and bottom, permitting the pallet to be reversed
One-way: an expendable pallet made of low-quality materials intended to be shipped once and then disposed
Two-way: a pallet that permits forklift entry in the two opposite pallet ends only
Four-way: a pallet that permits forklift entry in all four sides
The frame of a block pallet is made of three stringer boards supported by blocks of wood (see illustration). Most block pallets have nine blocks: one at each corner, one on each side, and one in the center of the pallet. Most block pallets are true four-way pallets, meaning they permit forklift and pallet truck entry on all four sides. Both stringer and block pallets usually have a series of bottom boards underneath the frame. Pallets with the same number of boards on the top and bottom are called reversible pallets, as they can be used with either side up. Pallets with no bottom boards are known as skids.
