About Nortpalet


Our mission is to play a major role in the chain of value for the manufacture of the full range of plastic logistics items which facilitate the transport or handling of all types of consumer goods.


Nortpalet’s vision is to form leading strategic partnerships in Europe and Latin America with all those agents interfering in the logistics chain of value (pools, logistics operators and small and medium-sized enterprises that are pioneers in logistics innovation) and that are convinced that sustainability is a mean to secure a competitive advantage now and in the future.

A sustainability whose origins are rooted in the combination of three factors:

  • Minimising cost per movement through the reuse of transport elements
  • Recycling plastic elements at the end of their useful life
  • Securing economies of scale in production that will allow for a long term reduction in average manufacturing costs

Corporate social responsability

As part of its key objectives, Nortpalet is fully committed to complying with the following parameters:

  • Environmental care and conservation
  • Respect for human rights
  • Ethical principles of behaviour
  • Quality employment
  • Transparency and precision in information management
  • Principles of progress and sustainable development


Our corporate philosophy is built on four major pillars:

  • Sustainability
  • Efficiency
  • Customer Service
  • Innovation


Today, plastic products as logistic items for transport and storage are present in practically all sectors. However, they are used most widely in the food, health and retail sectors.
