FEFPEB congress 2012

It is estimated by the industry that there are more than three billion timber pallets in circulation within the European Union, 1 billion units of lightweight packaging and several billion units of industrial timber packaging every year - and many more being used internationally. Alongside boxes, crates and other packaging, these are essential to the smooth movement of goods around the world.


  • Wood is the most sustainable and environmentally friendly choice of material for packaging or pallets
  • The use of wood is essential to the
    "Low Carbon Economy"
  • It is considerably less expensive than alternatives


You will find more information about these statements on this site, and about the other compelling reasons for choosing wood for your business.
