2014.02.06 Pallet assessment train a trainer course


The training course is facilitated by Mateusz Boruta, Managing Director of ECR Poland in English.

The aim of the training course is to foster transparancy in pallets exchange allowing companies (pallet users: retailers, suppliers, distributors and transport companies) to work together in classroom and warehouse to assess EUR and EPAL pallets in a similar way using ECR Baltic pallet assessment cards. The knowledge gained in the course afterwards can be easily cascaded down to warehouse floor / truck level.
