Pooling of crates and pallets

We make the supply chain efficient and sustainable

SRS' mission is to optimize the food industry's supply chain, We are professionals in the pooling of reusable crates and pallets in the food industry. Pooling is about sharing common resources to maximize benefits and minimize risks for users. We provide approximately 20 million crates and 8 million pallets.

The circle of SRS crates

The crates are used in a cycle between producers, wholesalers, stores and restaurants. Between each turn the crates return to our logistics facilities to be washed, checked and repaired.

Each crate is coated with a deposit which follow the crate through the system.

The faster a crate spins around in the system, the better for the environment.

The circle of Half pallets

Our half-pallets rotate between producers, wholesalers and stores. Just like on the crates, a deposit comes with the half-pallet.

We have different versions of half pallets that are aimed at different types of food and beverage.

As the pallet is not always washed after each use, the flows look a little different compared to the crates.

The circle of Full-size pallet Grey

Full-size pallet Grey is used in a cycle between producers, wholesalers, restaurants and stores. As the pallet is not washed after each use, the flows look a little different compared to the crates. The pallets can be forwarded directly from one user to another.

The transactions between the users of the full-size pallet are followed in our customer platform Smart Pooling. This means that all the users can keep good control over their balance of pallets.

The circle of Full-size pallet Black

On behalf of The Swedish Brewers Association (Sveriges Bryggerier), we have developed a pallet that is specially manufactured for the supply chain to and from Systembolaget.

The pallet is made from 100 percent recycled material. .

SRS crates and pallets in Europe

Our crates and pallets are also used for importing food to Sweden. We send out empty crates and pallets to producers in Europe who fill them with fruit and vegetables, meat and other products and send them back to wholesalers in Sweden.

Because of sustainablity reasoons we never ship crates outside of Europe.
