An Introduction to ContainerPAL Pooling
“Pooling” may sound daunting but it is simply the shared use of assets. At ContainerPAL, we use the power of pooling to provide businesses with “ready to use” reusable transport packaging assets, on-demand and at a lower cost than direct purchasing. The assets in our pool include plastic pallets, bulk containers, intermediate bulk containers (IBCs), distribution totes, carts, and more.
ContainerPAL is simply the easiest way to access the best reusable containers and pallets.
Through ContainerPAL, the reusable packaging supply chain has never been more simple or more affordable. Our short and long-term rental agreements, pooling services, one-way trip leases, and capital leases, we take care of ensuring that you have the right containers and pallets, right when and where you need them.
Pooling Saves On:
- Capital Expenses — Large, upfront investment is eliminated
- Return Freight — Our team handles your return freight and logistics
- Asset Overage — No need to buy or stock more assets than you need
- Storage of Unused Assets — Eliminate waste and disuse in your facilities
- Service and Maintenance Fees — Washing, repairs, and other expenses are covered
The Pooling Life Cycle
Our turnkey pooling process includes:
- Scheduled delivery of the agreed quantity at the agreed locations
- Automated tracking and tracing of the assets
- Scheduled collection of the agreed quantity at the agreed locations
- Cleaning and inspection of the asset after every collection
- Replacement or repair of broken parts or assets
In short: Our containers and pallets are delivered, picked up, cleaned, tracked, and maintained by our team — leaving you the freedom to focus on your core business. You get the value of reusable packaging with minimal commitment and investment.
