最佳解答: 氣質兒 妳好,
1. parcel, package 是指 包裹，包，捆; 一般的郵寄快遞物品(非紙張類, 而是有佔體積之內容物, 如書本, mp3, 衣物等等). 一個 parcel/package 可能內含多數量之物品.
I bought two books from Amazon Taiwan and my son told me to have received a package from Fedex this morning. I guess it should be the books I bought.
2. pallet 則是指 (裝卸、搬運貨物用的)托盤,貨板,集裝架, 用於船運貨櫃用途; 貨物出口常需考慮於一個貨板上有最佳包裝設計(package per pallet)
Mechanical designer is also responsible for the pallet design excepting the owned product designs.
Unit ---> parcel/package ---> pallet
ps. pallete should be typo, I guess?

Parcel post :
It is generally one of the less expensive ways to ship packages that are too heavy to be sent by regular letter post and is usually a slower method of transportation. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parcel_post
