Container Centralen (CC) Pool Management Services are dedicated to optimising your supply chain, reducing your costs and protecting the value of your investment. Our Services are tailor-made to suit your business needs.

What is a CC Pool?


Pooling is the shared use of equipment. By participating in the CC Pool you share standardized Reusable Transport Items with other companies. Sharing saves money and makes your logistics more efficient.

Our services apply to any type of reusable transport item, i.e. a crate, container or other load carrier. In addition, we offer a range of solutions to help customers to optimise their supply chain. We use smart technology like RFID to help optimise the performance of a pool and we tailor pool management solution to fit your needs.

It starts with understanding your business and the areas you would like to improve. Through a project management approach, we will work closely with you to implement the best solution for your business.
