Since it was founded in 1991, EPAL has focused on developing and safeguarding the most successful open pooling system for load carriers worldwide.

EPAL awards licences to carefully checked producers and repairers. These undergo continual and independent inspections by external companies for quality assurance (Bureau Veritas, China Certification & Inspection Group CCIC). Thus, EPAL is able to ensure consistently high quality worldwide for its EPAL pallets and box pallets.

Furthermore, EPAL undertakes valuable communications work and lobbying in order to strengthen the system in the long term and develop it further. Lastly, EPAL optimises available products in close cooperation with market players and develops new solutions.
