Logistics BusinessEPAL CP Pallets Ready for the Market

After many discussions with users in the chemicals industry, the European Pallet Association e.V. (EPAL) has implemented their requirements for EPAL CP pallets and included them in the EPAL Technical Regulations. In addition, the EPAL CP pallets have undergone many intensive practical trials in the Fraunhofer Institute for Material Flow and Logistics IML’s Dortmund packaging laboratory. The test results substantiate the EPAL CP pallets’ optimum functionality for bagged goods and drums and thus conform with the complex requirements of the chemical industry for high-quality wooden load carriers.

Christian Kühnhold, CEO EPAL: “The feedback from users in the chemicals industry on the amended technical requirements was positive in all the talks, and we had a high level of acceptance and support for the EPAL CP pallets. We’re now entering the race with the EPAL CP pallets.”

EPAL CP pallets fully comply with the demand for IPPC – ISPM 15-treated and dried quality pallets, which fulfil the safety requirements of the chemicals industry. The illustrations and descriptions of the nine different EPAL CP pallets (CP1–CP9) can be viewed here.

The European Pallet Association e.V. (EPAL), which was founded in 1991, ensures a smooth flow of goods in the logistics world with over 600 million EPAL Euro pallets and 20 million box pallets in the world’s biggest open exchange pool.
