Contraload has made a promise to itself and its stakeholders to move to 100% circularity by 2022. This means sourcing food approved raw materials from recycled plastics and pushing virgin material out, which is not a simple task. It also means working with our customers every day to improve tracking and tracing and to get to a zero loss of pallets and bins. Re-use assets, when broken Re-pair, if unrepairable than re-grind and re-use the raw material. If possible upcycle other plastics. Merely recycling is not an option, we need to raise the bar higher!



On 14th May 2014 the Lean and Green Award was handed to Contraload by the VIL (Flanders Institute for logistics).  Now Contraload belongs to one of the 52 companies in the Flemish Lean and Green Community.The Lean and Green programme was launched in 2007 in the Netherlands under the wings of the Organization Connekt.  On 30th January 2013 the VIL gave out the first 12 Awards in Belgium.  Italy and Germany also launched the Lean and Green label.

Lean and Green encourages and supports both logistics service providers and shippers to reduce the CO2emissions of their transport and logistics activities by at least 20% within 5 years.

Since 2004 Contraload has provided a very green service with the “the common reuse of load carriers”, also called “carpooling of load carriers”.

Because on the principle of efficient pooling there are fewer load carriers needed and, therefore, less raw materials.  Moreover, transport (delivery and return) is considerably better organized with a higher utilization rate.  In addition to the professional management of load carriers, losses are limited and all broken assets can be remanufactured.

Contraload delivers a significant contribution to the CO2 savings of more than 350 companies and this can not only be proven by a neutral LCA study and a CO2 calculation model, developed by CO2logic, but also by earning the Lean and Green Award.

The ultimate goal of Contraload is to be the greenest pooling company in Europe (and the world) and also to be able to prove this objectively.  A beautiful ambition that will come true!!

“It’s a fact!  In addition to saying we have a green service,
we now have the proof in hand that we are really green“


We can’t stop goods from being shipped, but we can help ship them as efficiently as possible. Pooling is the green answer that your supply chain is asking for. Our CO2-calculator will show you the impact of a change from an existing load carrier to a Contraload pooling solution!  If you want to find out what you can save, try our CO2 calculator.

Did you know that you can manage up to 85% CO2 savings when assets are pooled?

100% of our plastic pallets can be reused, so even our blue pallets are green!

If you decide to buy your own packaging then it is good to know that reusable packaging consume 39% less energy than one-way packaging
