PRODUCT INFORMATION

EPAL, the European Pallet Association, was founded in 1991 with a strong emphasis on the development and ensuring the prosperity of the global transportation system. For exporting goods to European countries, designing EPAL pallets according to export standards is an important factor. In today’s article, we will help businesses understand the origin and significance of EPAL EURO Pallet (EPAL 1).

THE EPAL PALLET BRAND

EPAL EURO PALLET (EPAL 1) MEETS EUROPEAN STANDARDS

In Europe, EURO pallets, also known as CEN pallets, are widely used in various industries with standard dimensions of 800x1200x144mm. European pallet manufacturers must comply with the regulations of the European Pallet Association (EPAL). EPAL manages every small detail, including the type of assembly used to build pallets and the type of wood used for pallet production.

These strict standards are based on the existence of a common pallet exchange organization across Europe. Pallet exchange agreements across national borders apply only to EURO pallets with EPAL EUR standards (primarily EURO1 pallets). Large international transportation transactions will use the same type of pallet, and the process of settling costs between the sender and receiver is even regulated, even in the case of international transportation involving countries participating in the European common market system.

The harmonization of cargo transportation handling in the European economic area has helped simplify the European common market system. It should be noted that EURO pallets are not the best choice for ISO standard container transportation due to their smaller dimensions compared to the width of the container.
