In the first quarter of 2016 18.3 million EPAL Euro pallets were produced worldwide: an increase of 5.1% compared to the previous-year period, European Pallet Association reported. Repairs figures increased slightly on the previous year with 6.1 million EPAL pallets repaired.“This excellent result for the first quarter of 2016 shows the high efficiency of the EPAL Euro pallet in logistics and the high acceptance rate of the EPAL system, the largest open exchange pool worldwide. In addition to this, is the outstanding work of the National Committees, our success in fighting against EPAL-pallet counterfeiting and support for users through effective tools such as the PalletCheck Express App, the quality classification and the EPAL Academy. All of this together makes the EPAL Euro pallet so successful and sustainable,” said Martin Leibrandt, CEO of the European Pallet Association e.V.
In 2015 production of EPAL pallets has increased by 10.9% to over 100 million, 73.6 million of which were newly produced EPAL Euro pallets.
