Pallet pooling constitutes a long-­‐term win-­‐win situation for all parties involved

Within the framework of its Europe­‐wide open pool activities, Pooling Partners coordinates Euro-­‐pallets and box pallets so as to always make them available in the right quality, at the right time and in the right place. To meet the growing needs of the increasingly larger number of customers, Pooling Partners is now also offering PAKi services in Romania. The experienced provider of logistics services has recently started to supply market leaders in their relevant segments with various load carriers on site as and when needed.

Ennepetal, 18. June 2016 – Enterprises whose goods are moved via Euro-­pallets, box pallets and other exchangeable containers are confronted with the same challenges throughout Europe. The distribution of products and merchandise and the supply of their own plants as well as of that of raw materials suppliers with load carriers must be organized and managed.

However, if too many or an insufficient number of pallets of the required quality are available for exchange at the relevant place, empty pallets have to be transported over long distances in order to compensate for imbalances in the number of pallets available. The administrative effort involved in completing transactions with recipients is significant if pallets cannot be exchanged with them, inter alia due to the processing of the documents required. Furthermore, pallets either have to be sold or new ones must be acquired, depending on fluctuations in demand. For the companies this means that, in addition to acquisition and storage costs, in many cases substantial transport costs are incurred. If these tasks have to be performed across several countries, the relevant expenses will multiply.

To ensure an efficient load carrier management, Pooling Partners, via the proven PAKi services, enables its customers to simply order any given amount of load carriers of the right quality at any time. From now on, this unique service is also available throughout Romania. Customers save on transport costs and are able to always adjust the number of pallets held by them throughout Europe as required. No acquisition or replacement costs are incurred.

„We have been operating in Romania since 2015 for renowned customers, handling all exchange activities on their behalf directly on site“, says Christian Kühnhold, Managing Director of Pooling Partners for PAKi services. „In addition, we also pursue local distribution activities so that other enterprises in Romania will be able to benefit from the open pool concept in the future.“ The settlement of operations is controlled from headquarters at Ennepetal. A separate team has been established by the logistics expert to provide extensive servicing for this newly developed market.

In the pool management area, Pooling Partners relies on its longstanding experience and provides all necessary services for the simplified and efficient handling of Euro-pallets, box pallets and other exchangeable pallets and containers. Among its customers are many leading companies in their relevant segments from the food industry, the logistics and retail sectors as well as the automotive industry.
