Pallet and Container Pooling Consolidation Continues with FHG Acquisition of PAKi Logistics

The trend towards consolidation in the pooling sector continues with FHG`s acquisition of PAKi Logistics. FHG is Europe`s largest pallet manufacturing company, and also the parent of IPP Logipal and PRS pallet pools. PAKi is a pool provider for euro and dusseldorf pallets, and box pallets. Last year it added plastic meat crates and plastic pallets to its product line.

This follows recent notable acquisitions in the pallet and container pooling sector, including pallet rental provider LPR by Euro Pool System, and Canada`s Paramount Pallet by Brambles. In 2010, the pooling sector was rocked by the Brambles acquisition of IFCO. Unitpool and CAPS were also scooped up by Brambles during this period.

Is the consolidation trend over for now? Here is a list released last year by Deutsche Bank of potential pooling acquisition targets.
