The European Pallet Association (EPAL) has opened the doors to a training centre in Düsseldorf, Germany.
The pallet institution will provide further training to licence holders, users and suppliers with seminars and training programmes.
The academy will also facilitate a cross-border exchange between its National Committees, of which there are currently 14.
Alexander Becker, academy manager, EPAL, said the training centre has created a point of contact for all users of Euro pallets, whilst there is also a desire to consolidate the expertise of the National Committees.
"Our National Committees possess extraordinary specialist knowledge regarding wooden Euro pallets - ultimately it is the most widely used cargo carrier in the world,” said Robert Holliger, president, EPAL.
Euroblock Verpackungsholz from Swabian Unterbernbach, Germany, is a premium partner of the EPAL Academy.
