Pooling of Returnable Packaging - Zamko B.V.

Global Pooling Solutions

Many companies manage large logistic operations with their customers and/or suppliers in Asia, Europe or North- & South America.

Frequently in these logistic operations one-way packaging is used. Even when it’s the more expensive option, changing to returnable packaging can be difficult because for this, a new operation needs to be set up and also managed. This is not easily done, and also it’s no core business.

So why not outsource this return process and just take the profit of using returnable packaging?

Our Pooling Services

With our global pooling service we offer our clients a fully outsourced service, in which we supply reusable packaging (or use your reusable packaging) on the multiple locations where needed. A fee is paid for each cycle the boxes are used.

Behind the screens we arrange for local pick-up, cleaning, repair and return transport of the packaging which has been send out. All to be monitored within a sophisticated computer tool.

For your organisation this pooling process will be comparable with your current operation; you get your packaging just-in-time when you need it. We can even unfold the boxes for you, ready-to-use!
No hassle of returning, cleaning, repairing etc.

Q&A About Pooling Solution

In the packaging industry, a pooling solution refers to a system where reusable packaging items, such as pallets, containers, or crates, are shared among multiple companies or stakeholders to optimize logistics and reduce waste.

Some benefits of using a pooling solution in the packaging industry include cost savings through reduced packaging waste, improved supply chain efficiency, reduced environmental impact, simplified logistics, and increased product protection.

In a pooling solution, companies rent or lease reusable packaging items from a pooling service provider. These items are tracked throughout the supply chain, and when they are no longer needed, they are returned to the pooling provider for inspection, cleaning, and redistribution.

Packaging items commonly included in a pooling solution are pallets, crates, containers, intermediate bulk containers (IBCs), and other reusable packaging materials that are suitable for multiple use cycles.

ZAMKO is established processes for inspecting, cleaning, and maintaining the cleanliness and quality of our packaging items. This involve washing, sterilization, repair, and quality checks before redistributing the items to you.

Yes, pooling solutions can often be tailored to meet the specific requirements of companies. This may include customization of packaging item types, quantities, delivery schedules, and other logistics considerations.

By using reusable packaging items, pooling solutions help reduce packaging waste, minimize the consumption of resources required for manufacturing disposable packaging, and lower carbon emissions associated with packaging production and disposal.

When selecting a pooling solution provider, factors such as reliability, track record, service coverage, pricing structure, quality assurance measures, customer support, and the provider’s commitment to sustainability should be taken into account. ZAMKO offers all this and many more to help your industry process goes smooth and continue to grow.
