Global scale, local expertise: the support your business needs, where you need it
With a network of local offices and over 1,100 customer support employees worldwide, at IFCO we’re there for your business.
Centralised control, local support
The IFCO pool is managed centrally, with continuous monitoring and optimisation of shipments, to ensure the right equipment is always available for our customers when and where they need it. Customer services are managed locally, to ensure you can always reach someone who understands the needs and challenges of your market.
Manage your account your way
Our state-of-the-art IT systems make it easy to manage your equipment pool. These include a web-based clearing system, track-and-trace for pooled equipment, and planning and simulation tools to optimise logistics. Our corporate finance and inventory management interface is SAP R/3.
A strong team based on strong ethics
IFCO adheres to the highest global standards in workforce safety and supplier diversity, with flexible local execution. We are a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact for human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption.
Proactive about your performance
We work closely and continuously with all our customers to help them improve their supply chain performance, optimise the way they work with our equipment and reduce costs. From handling tips and cube optimisation to best practices at the point of sale, our account managers are always available to give you their expert advice.
Only IFCO offers such a wide range of pooled equipment and solutions, with over 70 models of RPC. We have RPCs to suit every type of fruit and vegetable, including one designed specifically for bananas. And we have other RPCs optimised for meat and poultry, eggs and baked goods.
We also work with our customers to improve this range as part of a continuous research and development programme.
