Contraload NV – Aartselaar – Belgium
Founded in 2004 by Sylvain Naets and Jesse Sels.
Since then Contraload has gone from strength to strength and has become the European market leader in plastic pallet pooling. It also operates a unique container pool for liquid and dry bulk logistics. With close to holding 1 million assets in its pool and clients in 26 countries Contraload keeps growing day by day.
The word Contraload refers to ‘containers’, ‘transport’, ‘logistics’ and ‘load carriers’ as well as ”contra”, being different to the (somewhat boring) market standards and “load”, because we help carry the loads of our customers through the supply chain.

Contraload Iberia SA – Barcelona – Spain
Spain is a leading country when it comes to pooling services and based on the requests from our customers, the time is right to invest and enter this arena !
What if we could offer our customers more than pooling? We Pool, we Rent, but now we also Sell! Take a look at our brand new webshop.
Italy has been a strong grower within our pool for several years, and we are setting up our office to enable our extra local team members to come on board!
Contraload has acquired PLS and launches itself into the layerpad business. With 6 conditioning plants in UK, Germany and Poland as well as an excellent service track record, the joining of forces will help us support our customer with pallets and pads!
Following the requests of our customers to service plastic pallet pooling inside Turkey as well as exports towards the EU, Contraload has decided to take the entrepreneurial step of starting Contraload Turkey, based in Istanbul.
