TORONTO, Ont. — Members of the Canadian Pallet Council have voted to shut the program down effective May 29.
The decision was reached during a vote March 23 at a special general meeting held in Toronto, Ont.
“The closure is the result of the loss of members over the last few years, and most significantly, the recent loss of all major distributor support. There is no longer a viable network of members willing or able to exchange CPC pallets,” the organization wrote in a notice to members. “Immediate steps are being taken towards the closure of the CPC with the expectation that all active operations will cease by the end of May 2015.”
The CPC offered the following timeline for the discontinuance of services:
April 30 – CTSWEB will cease to operate. If you are using CTSWEB and wish to extract your data, you must do so prior to this date.
April 30 – CPC Office will close.
May 29 – CPC Operations & Member Support will cease.
The organization will continue responding to members while services are wound down. It will also continue selling Bills of Lading while inventory lasts. For more info, contact 905-372-1871 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
