The European Pallet Association e.V. (EPAL) has announced that 115.8 million EPAL quality load carriers were produced and repaired in 2017, a record result. This was an increase of nearly 10%.
In 2017, production figures alone rose by 9.7% to 88.3 million EPAL pallets, while repair figures climbed to 27.5 million.
Martin Leibrandt, CEO of EPAL, “The outstanding 2017 figures are the result of the joint work of all EPAL national committees and licensees, and a sign that trade and industry are increasingly relying on independently tested quality and safety, which pay off in the long term.”
