Also known asEuro pallets, you may have seen pallets with the distinctive quality mark on pallets and storage boxes, which means that the pallet meets global safety guidelines to ensure that your business is running safely.

As a globally responsible organisation, EPAL ensures that load carriers are of high quality and meet the standards required when they are regularly inspected.

The organisation has been granting licenses since 2013, with a distinct “EPAL in oval” marking on all approved pallets and storage boxes.

There are currently over 30 countries that abide by european standards to ensure that the interests of the trade, logistics and any industry partners are safe and effective.
