A pallet can hold up to 60 cases of beer. There are typically 10 cases per layer and six layers on one pallet. Most pallets in North America are as wide as they are long. The standard dimension of a pallet is 36 inches by 36 inches.
A case of beer contains 24 12-ounce bottles or cans. There are six different pallet sizes that are recognized internationally, so some pallets can hold more than 60 cases, while others cannot hold that much at all. Pallets are used to transport beer easily, and they help supermarkets, liquor stores and convenience stores to stock their shelves in a timely manner.
