A total of 73.6 million EPAL Euro pallets were produced around the globe in 2015 which is a record result, up 10.9% on the previous year. At 23.9 million units, the 2015 repair figures were slightly but clearly above those of the previous year (2014: 22.4 million). In 2014, with an increase of 3%, the development of the EPAL load carriers was on a par with the growth of the global logistics industry. In 2015, the production figures more than tripled and thus lay far above the annual growth rates in the logistics and packaging industry. EPAL’s positive overall result was influenced by increased production in Belgium, the Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania and Ukraine.
