How do I calculate a pallet space
You calculate a pallet location by multiplying the length and the width. When you then divide this by 9600, you arrive at the number of pallet places.
There is, however, an exception regarding the calculation of pallet locations. When goods are wider than 1.2 metres, pallets cannot be placed next to each other, side by side. The maximum width of a trailer is 2.4 metres.
