The way the world makes, moves and sells goods is being transformed

This general-purpose, resuable wooden euro pallet (size 1200x800 mm) is ideal for the loading, distribution and display of goods. It is pooled and serviced throughout CHEP’s network of service centres, helping to increase efficiency and the sustainable use of natural resources across the supply chain.

As our customers are faced with new challenges and opportunities, CHEP is partnering with them to find revolutionary ways of operating, and to deliver solutions for smarter and more sustainable supply chains.

As part of CHEP’s commitment to continually improving our products and solutions, we are making a significant quality investment in our European pallet pool to help customers move more products, more efficiently and more sustainably than ever before.

The 1200x800 mm CHEP pallet is a general purpose platform that can be safely used for most applications in the distribution and transportation of goods and products in Europe.

Through continuous innovation we are creating an enhanced and more robust European (1208) pallet to better protect your products throughout the supply chain.

  • Dimensions and tolerances will stay the same so that your operations will not be impacted by the change, but the new design elements will deliver benefits to help address changing needs within the supply chain.
  • Our customers will benefit from improved quality, performance, and safety, and our industry-leading sustainability assurance program will help you achieve your business and environmental goals without having to compromise one for the other.
  • The new pallet design will start being produced in 2018, and we will progressively inject new enhanced pallets according to purchase needs.
  • The transition from the existing pallet will be gradual over a few years as our pallets circulate through the network, so you will likely see the two versions together during the transition period.
