How many Pallets will fit on a semi/maxi?

That depends on which products and how much the semi or maxi can haul.

Semi’s typically haul 48,000 lbs. Maxi’s range around 64,000 depending on how they’re setup.

Almost all of our pallets (except thin veneer crates) weigh approx. 4,000 lbs. each so 12 will load a semi and 16 will load a maxi.

Our thin veneer crates weigh 2,050 or 2,200 lbs. per crate of flats and approx. 1,500 lbs. per crate of corners (depending on the product). As you can see, the number of pallets/crates a semi/maxi will haul depends on which products are ordered.
