    Mother of the Euro pallet

The Pallet Pioneers

George Raymond Sr, founder of the US Raymond Corporation, invented the first transport pallet. UIC is considered the mother of the Euro pallet and EPAL was instrumental in the further development of the open pallet pooling system (exchange pool). Oliver Richter is an early pioneer of the circular economy and “father of the CHEP system”, the first closed pooling system (rental pool) for load carriers.

The Pallet Pioneers can claim to have laid the foundation for the pallet's success.
