Kraftpal CEO, Gregor Brajovic comments on the nomination:

Being nominated for the award in the company of such established companies, some of them are global players in the packaging industry, is a great recognition for our aspirations to play a part in making the world of logistics more efficient and sustainable with our pallets. I am convinced the future of transport will be built on using lightweight packaging and that KraftPal will play a big role in helping companies to move their palletized goods in a more sustainable way as shown by the recent Life Cycle Assessment and Transport Efficiency studies. Regardless of whether we come out as winners for the Green Packaging Star award or not, I would like to congratulate and thank our R&D Team and employees in Austria for a great job they have done thus far.
