PLANTING FOR THE FUTURE
A sponsorship agreement to support the renewal and productive management of our forests with “Planting for the future”.
To support companies in the national territory, we rely on reliable partners, so we allow our customers to find a geographically close contact, able to meet their needs. We appeal on trusted partners, historic partners with whom we have worked for many years.
This synergy also makes it possible to pool our resources and know-how to meet the demands of our customers.
Our logistics service organises the pick-up of pallets and your wood waste according to the schedule in place.
There are various collection methods to choose from: box truck, flatbed or flatbed semi-trailer.
The collected pallets are transported to treatment platforms for sorting according to various criteria.
Once sorted, pallets in good condition are rerouted to our storage area. Broken pallets are repaired in our workshops. Unsalvageable pallets are sent for grinding and transformation into fuelwood.
The detailed report on each treated batch will be sent to you.
We give economic value to old pallets through restoration, allowing them to be re-used (recovery–reuse).
End-of-life pallets are recoverable after grinding, namely for the manufacture of particle board (material recovery) or as fuel for boiler rooms (energy recovery).
With the help of our network, we carry out pallet flow upkeep, maintenance and organisational operations nationwide, providing the necessary amounts of pallets at a given location in a timely manner.
As part of the circular economy, the role of reverse logistics is increasing in companies’ supply chains.
The purpose of pallet relocation is to ensure the return of goods carriers from the user to the producer by optimising and streamlining flows. VALORPAL provides its customers with stocks from these 50 local depots to meet its customers’ needs, according to the required quantity and quality. By pooling the platforms, these pallets can be returned to all of the depots in our network.
This process facilitates your flow of reusable pallets, prevents unnecessary time costs and helps reduce CO2 emissions.
