20th December 2018

Euro Pool System (EPS), a key player in the field of reusable packaging in the European fresh supply chain, has been named winner of the ‘Project of the Year’ category at the Supply Chain Awards along with partners Delhaize and Aucxis.

The Supply Chain Awards 2018, held in Antwerp, saw EPS and Delhaize presented with the prestigious accolade for their ‘Reverse Logistics Distribution Centre of the Future’ project. This award goes to a company that can demonstrate best practices in supply chain projects integrating aspects of procurement as well as warehousing, production and logistics.

With their ‘Reverse Logistics Distribution Centre of the Future’ project, EPS optimises the use of returnable transport items within the total supply chain.

Euro Pool System has become the standard in the European chain for fresh and packaged food with its reusable and foldable trays. The award-winning project pools or rents reusable trays to customers across Europe. The project manages the entire process from start to finish and all the way back again. They provide the pooling of the trays and returnable transport items, track and trace every tray and offer a reverse logistics service to bring the items back from the shops into service centres for maintenance and re-supply; all done with extreme efficiency.
