FAQ: What do you need to know about the reusable IFCO plastic pallets?

1. How does it work with the IFCO plastic pallets?

We have a more cost-efficient and easier solution for you than wooden pallets and conventional exchange systems. Our reusable plastic pallets are only available through the IFCO Pallet SmartCycle pooling system, which means we take care of them for you. We deliver washed pallets to your door when you need them. You don’t buy our pallets or enter an exchange system as you would normally do with conventional wooden pallets, you use the IFCO Pallet SmartCycle "share and reuse" model. With our support, you reduce capital expenditure, upfront costs and administrative burdens.

2. And will the IFCO plastic pallets reduce our carbon emissions?

With a longer lifespan of up to 10 times more than conventional wooden pallets, and full recyclability at the end of life, our reusable pallets support the circular economy. In addition, the IFCO plastic pallets are designed to save space in trucks, reduce trucks on the road and eliminate inefficient transport legs, saving costs and carbon emissions in the process.

3. Why do you offer two types of reusable pallets? And how do I know which one is best for me? Dora or Nestor?

Both pallets are customized specifically for the challenges of today’s fresh grocery supply chain.

Do you want a strong, sturdy, standardized design for use in highly automated logistics and hygiene environments, including meat and poultry? Then you should be looking at Dora.

Do you want an ultralight, nestable and stackable pallet that works in order picking and pack lines? Are you transporting fresh fruit and vegetables across borders? Do you need better ventilation to keep your fresh products fresh for longer, right up to POS? Then you should be looking at Nestor.

If you’re still not sure which one is best for your needs, get in touch. We’re happy to help you make the right sustainable pallet choice.
