The EPAL Academy is the international competence and information centre of the European Pallet Association e.V. (EPAL). Since being founded in August 2014, the EPAL Academy has developed into an important institution in the international logistics sector. The Academy offers a broad portfolio of training courses and informative events aimed at EPAL pallet users in the retail and industrial sectors, logistics experts and suppliers.

EPAL Academy training courses are held in-house, on-site at customers’ operations or online as webinars. Successfully completing a training course at the Academy is documented with a certificate.

In addition, the EPAL Academy trains employees from customs authorities, particularly in countries on the EU’s external borders, and is a point of contact for the applicable national patent offices. Thus, the EPAL Academy is an important component in the fight to prevent EPAL Euro pallets from being counterfeited.

The network and expertise of the EPAL Academy is based on the almost 30 years of experience of the European Pallet Association e.V. (EPAL) that operates the world’s largest open pallet pool, which it continues to expand and make future proof.
