Most pallet consumers in Europe use these pooling pallets, rather than buying them. Each member of the pool benefits from sharing pallets.
The pooling (pallet) company compensates the retailer for sorting and storing the pooling pallets
Pallets have a proven reliable design and are not broken on the territory of the distribution center and shopping malls
Reduced administration costs, since there is no reconciliation with suppliers of returnable containers; document management for pooling pallets occurs with one pallet operator.
We, OPEN group, together with our clients and partners are testing pooling in Russian realities, we are developing additional “options” for it, which are necessary for Russian members of the pool.
We are often asked: “How is pooling different from leasing of the pallets?”
Despite the seemingly similarities between pooling and leasing of the pallets (indeed, in both cases, pallets are provided by the pallet company for temporary use), these are still different services.
Firstly, pooling pallets have a unique identification: color, marking, and RFID tags. This is to facilitate accounting for the number of pallets in the pool.
Secondly, when renting, retailers do not receive compensation from the pallet company for sorting pallets.
Как это работает?
Your supplier of assortment FMCG receives pooling pallets for use
He provides you, in retail, and distributors with your goods on pallets. Compared to buying a pallet, pooling saves the working capital of FMCG companies. Important! Pooling pallets are indicated on a separate line in the invoice, they are NOT included in the price of goods delivered to the retailer!
The retailer sorts the pooling pallets
separately from all others, and then transfers them to the pooling company. For these operations, the retailer receives compensation from the pooling pallet company (that is, from us).
We will take them out ourselves
We arrive at the addresses of the retailers or distributors participating in the pool declared by your FMCG supplier and pick up our pool pallets.
Important! FMCG company, acquiring pooling pallets for use is not liable for the amount that we will return from distribution chains and other contractors. This responsibility passes to retailers (or distributors) with the receipt of goods on pool pallets. And for this the retailer (distributor) receives compensation.
Evaluation of the condition and recovery
Exported pooling pallets arrive at our service pallet centers for inspection (we evaluate the number and condition of returned pallets) and recovery.
