Pooling for easy shipping and receiving
This is why a lot of e-commerce platforms, suppliers and parcel couriers are relying more often on pallet pooling for their pallet management. By switching to pallet pooling you no longer receive and ship products on white exchange pallets and/or disposable pallets, but on durable, high-quality wooden pooling pallets. Some of the biggest players and brands have been using CHEP's share & reuse system for years.
Pallet exchange is history
The advantage? You no longer have to buy, store or exchange pallets yourself. Thanks to the extensive, international network of more than 315,000 delivery points, 240 CHEP service centres in Europe alone, the pallets can be left behind at their destination. Through an online tool, you can simply indicate where the pallets are going, so that CHEP picks them up after use and takes them to the nearest CHEP service centre for inspection and possible repair. From there, they can be re-delivered to local producers.
Cost-efficient, simple and sustainable
With pooling, no more return transport is needed, you save costs and reduce the number of truck kilometres and CO2 emissions. And because you don’t have to exchange the pallets anymore, you will lose no more time in discussions about supposedly lost pallets, pallet quality, outstanding balances and complex administration.
For a standardized pallet management and smooth automation
Thanks to the strict quality control in the service centres, the quality of pooling pallets remains high and the risk of product damage and product returns is reduced. Since the dimensions of the pallets are consistent, they’re extremely suitable for an automated warehouses and processes.
