End to end logistic services
For customers renting our Arlington Combo IBCs (pallecons) we also offer an end-to-end IBC logistics management service. If you haven’t the in-house resources or simply the time to handle IBC fleet logistics then leave it to us. They’ll be where they need to be, when they need to be there.
However complex your supply chain is we’ll help you keep it operating as smoothly and efficiently as possible. Whether it’s open-loop, closed-loop or anything in-between, you can rely on us to get your IBC fleet to the right destinations, on-time.
What’s more, by handling your logistics we’re even better placed to keep an eye on your IBC fleet and make sure it’s running at full capacity. As a part of our rental program’s integrated service management plan, we’ll identify any repair or cleaning requirements and attend to them at no extra charge.
Plus of course we’ll keep a constant watch on cost-effectiveness, analysing IBC fleet logistics performance over time and recommending improvements that can be made. Our philosophy of ‘repair-maintain-improve’ means we look after our rental fleet, and we look after you.

What is pooling?
The pooling of reusable packaging, crates and pallets is an important component of today’s supply chain efficiency and sustainability efforts but what is it?
Pooling is the word used to describe a process by which entities can share a single resource. Here the resource is returnable packaging, specifically BiB IBC products, and the entities are geographically disparate users of those products. The process enables different parts of the supply chain in different industries to draw on this common resource, the pool, providing them with the resources they require, when they need them. Once they have cycled through that particular supply chain they are drawn back into the pool where they are cleaned and maintained for the next use. The individual users within that cycle each, only pay for the amount of resource they have consumed.
Arlington is a pooling provider and is responsible for providing the correct type and amount of resource to the user at the correct time and place in a properly serviceable condition. Recovery of the resource at the end of the cycle. Cleaning and maintaining the pool, Managing the level of assets in the pool.
As well as this we can manage the administration requirements, provide tracking and flow analysis to help our customers spot issues and bottlenecks within their supply chain.
