Pallet Standards

Idaho State Liquor Division Pallet Standard

The Idaho State Liquor Division (ISLD) uses the Automated Storage and Retrieval System (ASRS).

The use of this automated equipment requires that every pallet being delivered to ISLD must comply with the following size standards. These standards will be automatically verified on every pallet entering the ASRS:

  1. Maximum Pallet Height, including pallet: 72”
  2. Maximum Pallet Weight: 2,800 lbs
  3. Maximum Pallet Width: 42”
  4. Maximum Pallet Length: 48”

All In-bound pallets or slip sheet stored pallets must be stretch wrapped

Products may still arrive on slip sheets. The dimensions of products on slip sheets must comply with the aforementioned standards. Products which arrive on slip sheets will be transferred to standard GMA pallets. The total height when transferred must not exceed 72” and the total width must not exceed 42”. No overhang is allowed.

GMA 40” x 48” pallets are required. GMA pallets must be Grade A or Grade B.

Non-complying pallets:

At its option ISLD may elect to do any of the following to bring pallet dimensions into compliance:

  • 1. Refuse to accept delivery until pallets are repackaged and compliant.
  • 2. Require Idaho Sales Representative or Designated Supplier/Broker to take possession of non-compliant pallets until items are repackaged and compliant.
  • 3. ISLD may restack or down-size pallets to bring pallets into compliance.

ISLD may restrict retail display activation and future listings of the Supplier’s items for any additional material handling that may be required by ISLD warehouse staff.
