If you choose pallets, you can also opt for pallet pooling. In that case, you do not buy the pallets yourself, but rent them, for example via CHEP. Some of the largest international brands already use CHEP pallets for their exports from and to the U.S. and Canada. Every year, almost 170,000 CHEP pallets with goods arrive in Europe from the United States.
Advantages for export flows
Pallet pooling for your export flows has the advantage that you do not have to take care of the administration, maintenance and storage of the platforms yourself. And once at their destination, they are simply taken to the nearest pool after use and not thrown away. CHEP has the largest pooling network, in more than 50 countries, where pallets are checked, repaired when necessary and put back into circulation. This not only saves you money, but also valuable wood.
Pallet pooling also for import
You can call on pallet pooling not only for your export flows, but also for the intercontinental import of goods. If you receive containers in which the products are separately, you can rent pooling pallets and use them for further European or national distribution. Even if you receive your goods on pallets, you can ask your suppliers to deliver on pooling pallets. This way you can immediately continue with the distribution of your products. Ultimately, the pallets are also simply reused in the country of destination.
