An ECO-designed pallet
The pallet environmental impacts are limited, upstream, from its conception. So, the EcoPGS is:
- a multiple-use pallet: repairable, longer life,
- recoverable at the end of life (energy, raw material),
- optimized in its sizing: realized with an application software called Pallet Express and tested for its mechanical strenght from the FCBA technological institute (Forest-Cellulose-Wood-Furniture),
- produced with modern sawing technologies allowing reduce the power consumptions.
Quality controls are made and followed for the manufacturing and repairing operations. Notably, they are about:
- The quality of used woods,
- The respect of the sizes and the tolerances,
- The quality of the assembling,
- The pallet sizes.
An ECOlogical pallet
The EcoPGS is mainly made from storm wood (windfall) of january 2009. This method meets our eco-citizen step of recovery of raw materials coming from forests managed sustainably (PEFC). More over, this new product complies with the demands of the decree n°98-638 on 20/07/1998 concerning the environmental demands (about the pallet manufacturing, ingredients, reuse and end of life).
An ECOnomical pallet
The EcoPGS price is optimized by:
- The upstream control of the log supplies (with a guarantee of a contractual commitment in term),
- An optimization of the unit cube,
- Economies of scale thanks to an important "multi-customers" production, on modern and high-performance manufacturing lines,
- The anticipation of the return rate.
The EcoPG is all at one carriage-paid price all over France, without capital asset term.
Process of volume reassure:
- Possibility of intervention before 24h,
- Medium safety stock of 25 000 pallets on our Salles factory (33),
- Failing available EcoPGS pallets, EUR pallets delivery in substitution,
- Eventually, available stocks on all our reconditioning sites.
