Without the logistics companies, the pallet exchange in Germany would not work. Thanks to the drivers, carriers and hauliers, producers and retailers benefit from the open pallet pool. In Germany, the Euro pallet is accepted as a currency everywhere at retailers and cargo owners. For years, transporters complain about the unequal pallet exchange. Good pallets are exchanged for bad pallets on the ramps of consignors and consignees of goods by the drivers and warehouse operators. Often, transport companies feel disadvantaged by these practices of unequal pallet exchange. Using our monthly pallet report, logistics companies have the possibility to charge fair pallet prices.
Goods manufacturers in Germany ship their products on Euro pallets, one-way pallets or rental pallets. A typical consignor from the industry saves time-consuming searches for pallet prices with our Pallet Report. The goods recipients from retailers to producers often do not exchange pallets. This leads to irritation at logistics companies. Quite often pallets are invoiced with up to 15 € per used pallet in addition to 30 € processing fee. In order to settle the pallet dispute between the goods recipients and logistics companies sustainably, our customers agree on neutral pallet prices. Purchasing, Logistics, Materials Management as well as Supply Chain and even Sales are happy to use the monthly pallet report as a price benchmark for their own tenders.
