Abstract : The patent describes a reversible, compact stacking, fork-lift type pallet. It consists of a sheet of rigid material having spaced, parallel, diagonally disposed folds to provide a corrugated structure with four sides. Rows of aligned openings extend through adjacent folds to receive the usual spaced tines of a fork-lift truck from multiple directions. In manufacture a single sheet of material in the shape of a rhomboid parallelogram is perforated and then folded to the required corrugated shape.
