PALBANK - A collaborative solution to manage exchangeable pallets in a green and economical way, based on a dense network and matches between users

PALBANK is the alternative to traditional systems of exchange and rental of pallets for manufacturers and carriers, while preserving the environment. It is a relevant and economical solution for pallet management. Based on the principle of “pallet-exchange”, PALBANK is an online solution for the accounting of pallets on a virtual credit-debit and clearing system like a bank account. Users deposit pallets therefore credit their account and take back pallets therefore debit their account. Pallets can be dropped off and picked up wherever they want at one of the 330 points of the PFM-Solutions network. PALBANK can also deliver and collect pallets on behalf of its users. The flexibility of our services makes it possible to manage small quantities such as complete batches of pallets. The Solution provides real financial savings and a significant impact on the environment with less CO2 emissions by minimising journeys.
