Brambles Limited is an Australian company that specializes in the pooling of unit-load equipment, pallets, crates and containers. It is listed on the Australian Securities Exchange.
Brambles traces its history to 1875, when Walter Bramble established a butchery business in Newcastle, the operations of which he gradually expanded into transport and logistics. In 1958, the company changed its name to Brambles Industries Limited and moved its head office from Newcastle to Sydney.
The Company's solutions include supply chain solutions, platform solutions, system-wide solutions, transportation solutions, retail store solutions, manufacturing, warehousing and distribution center solutions and sustainability solutions. Platform solutions offers customers a range of supply chain platforms, such as pallets (timber and plastic), reusable plastic crates (RPCs), bins and containers.
Its circular business model facilitates the ‘share and reuse’ of the world’s largest pool of reusable pallets and containers. This enables Brambles to serve its customers while minimizing the impact on the environment and improving the efficiency and safety of supply chains around the world. In a resource-constrained world, circular business models like those operated by Brambles are recognized as a practical business solution enabling the world to trade more responsibly. By replenishing what it extracts and providing its products via a service, Brambles helps reduce both the constant pressure on natural resources and the waste production typical of conventional linear business models.
Brambles’ business is built on principles that are inherently sustainable. With Barron’s ranking, Brambles is recognized as the most sustainable company globally in 2020 and will continue to play a pivotal role in shaping a sustainable future.
