Pallet or Skid?

You have heard of a Pallet and also a Skid? What are they and how are they different?

A pallet is a flat structure with both a top and a bottom deck, consisted of three or four stringers that connect several dock boards.

However a Skid only has a top deck. That is why a ‘skid’ is used only for storing heavy objects. Whereas if you need to Ship LTL you will usually need the Pallet.
