Two postal organisations recently joined the IPC Pallet Box network: in January, POST Luxembourg joined the network and have since expanded to include their Post Logistics Department. An Post have also joined the pool and are planning to go live early August. The addition of An Post and POST Luxembourg to the Pallet Box network is estimated to increase the daily Pallet Box usage by approximately 10%.
Currently seven postal operators are using IPC Pallet Box: An Post, Deutsche Post DHL Group, Le Groupe La Poste, PostNL, POST Luxembourg, Royal Mail and Swiss Post. Due to the Pallet Box pool's success and the expanding membership, IPC is currently producing an additional 3,000 pallet boxes to inject into the network.
