A sustainable and efficient pallet pool, with a sufficient supply of load carriers, is essential for customers, retailers and pooler. Our success depends on making sure pallets stay in our pool and are used in an optimal way because when pallets become unavailable, the efficiency and sustainability of the pooling system is jeopardised.
IPP calls upon all customers, retailers and other stakeholders involved in our pooling system to ensure that our pallets are returned as soon as they are unloaded. This way we can ensure the most efficient and sustainable pooling system from which all participants in the supply chain benefit.
In our pallet recovery expertise series, you can learn more about this topic and how you can actively contribute to a sustainable and efficient pallet pool.
How to recognize a pooling pallet
Next to pooling pallets, Europallets and one-way pallets are also being used in supply chains – they have different characteristics regarding ownership and value. It is important to know and understand these differences. Our operations colleague, Tim Vanderheyden, explains the different pallet systems and how to recognise them.
