The pallet is an increasingly expensive resource and attracts covetousness.
As with many commodities in recent times, pallets are on the long list of shortages. Its price is a minimum of €15 each and is therefore subject to theft.
Criminals equipped with a 40-tonne truck broke into the Smurfit Kappa company located in Chasse-sur-Rhône by cutting the fence with shears and stole 800 pallets, for a total of at least €12,000.
The company filed a complaint for the damage suffered.
