A shipping term that refers to the cost of transporting one pallet to a particular location.  A “flat pallet” rate means that the cost to ship the pallet is the same, no matter the amount of total goods stacked on that pallet.  For example, a flat pallet rate of $100 means that it would cost the same amount whether you put 1 drum or 4 drums on that pallet.
