  • Partners agree upon the most suitable exchange basis for their circumstances. For example, “Pallet for Pallet”. This term accounts for future settlement, etc.
  • Euro Pallets dispatched to Europe are entering a culture of trading or selling. Whereby own the pallet, you invoice its resale value onto your customer, who is then free to realize its value by trading/reusing or selling
  • The amount you charge your customers for the Euro Pallet is negotiable between you and your customer in Europe
  • Euro Pallets in Europe are not supplied free of charge, and are instead traded or sold throughout Europe. It is normal to add the value of the Euro pallet to your product, with the net result that you purchase new Euros for ½ price
  • Only quality inspected EURO-Pallets guarantee smooth material flow to anywhere in the world. Either within your business or internationally, be it in transport or storage
