An improved pallet made of a synthetic resin wherein the underside of the upper deck is substantially planar, and the supports which separate the upper and lower decks are integrally formed with and project upwardly from the lower deck, and are secured to the underside of the upper deck. The upper ends of the supports are received in recesses in the underside of the upper deck, and the recesses and the supports preferably have mating elements which snap-actingly engage one another to lock the supports in the recesses when the decks are assembled. Preferably, the supports are tapered, the lower ends of the supports being wider than the upper ends thereof. The top surface of the upper deck, the bottom surface of the lower deck, and the underside of the upper deck in the fork-receiving regions between the supports may have a slip-resistant scuffed texture.
