Why CHEP pooling?

How do we compare to the white wood equivalent? See how the advantages of pooling stack up.

  • Higher quality

    A rigorous inspection and repair process keeps quality consistent. Independent research shows our pallets last up to 10 times longer than the white-wood equivalent.

  • More sustainable

    By sharing and reusing equipment, we reduce emissions and waste and save natural resources. All our timber is certified sustainable and nothing ends up in landfill.

  • Lower costs

    Rent pallets from CHEP and we’ll take care of the admin, maintenance, quality assurance and recycling – so you can avoid the hidden costs of white exchange.

  • Best availability

    With 220 service centres in 35 countries, and 120m pallets in circulation, only CHEP can ensure you always have the equipment you need, wherever you need it.
