Load-carrier pooling = circular economy

Our network of more than 10,000 PAKi Spots across Europe as well as the constant availability of the desired amount of pallets and boxes in the right quality guarantee a functioning circular economy that helps everyone involved reach their sustainability goals.

The open pool of standard load carriers, such as Euro pallets and box pallets, offers many advantages: load carriers can be exchanged and organised flexibly and cost-effectively across Europe, which significantly simplifies logistics in the supply chains of industry, retail and logistics service providers and reduces the carbon footprint of the entire supply chain. The proven open-pool system saves time for everyone involved, increases efficiency and is environmentally friendly. No expensive empty runs or time-consuming reloading of goods required. In this way, our clients and we at PAKi can reduce resource consumption in supply chains.

Furthermore, the load carriers are evaluated in our licensed production and repair facilities in accordance with strict quality guidelines, ensuring a seamless material flow for a wide range of quality requirements on the market. More than 600 million Euro pallets and 20 million box pallets are in circulation in the European Union in the open exchange pool.

The more users are involved, the more sustainable and efficient the system becomes. With us as a partner, you can obtain pallets and boxes in the quality you need from anywhere in Europe and drop them off again where you no longer need them.

The exchange of pallets and boxes in an open-pool system not only optimises the logistics processes of our clients in industry, retail and logistics through targeted load-carrier management, but also offers numerous additional advantages:

The concept of open pooling itself is sustainable. It constitutes a Europe-wide circular exchange system from which all participants benefit because they can exchange load carriers with each other flexibly and inexpensively.

We pool standard load carriers according to the EPAL standard, such as Euro pallets and box pallets. EPAL’s circular system is the world’s most successful open pooling system for load carriers.

Thanks to our network of over 10,000 pick-up and drop-off stations in Europe, load carriers can be reused anywhere in Europe. This eliminates empty runs and therefore cuts CO2 emissions and fuel costs.

Our digital solutions ensure more efficient, resource-friendly processes. With digital account management, our PAKi e-Voucher digital pallet note and our Drop & Drive app, you can organise your load carriers paperlessly.

All EPAL pallets are made almost entirely of wood, a renewable raw material. As a result, every single EPAL Euro pallet reduces the global CO2 balance of our planet by 30 kg. Broken pallets can usually be repaired or recycled.

In 2023, the Faber Group – our parent Group – was awarded Platinum status by EcoVadis. This is the highest sustainability ranking and means that we are part of the top 1% of companies in all industries. EcoVadis is the leading provider of sustainability ratings for companies.

With over 10,000 PAKi Spots across Europe, we guarantee a functioning circular economy. This makes load-carrier management not only efficient, but also extremely sustainable. Marc Groenewoud, CEO of PAKi Logistics
