Container Centralen has confirmed plans to reduce the annual pool fee by EUR1 over the next two years.
The company's chief executive Tonny Vangsgaard Gravesen has revealed that the fee will be cut by EUR0.50 in 2012 and again in 2013 - a promise made by the company in late 2010.
"The savings resulting from excluding fake copies from the system will be passed on directly to our loyal customers," he said.
"Due to recent radio-frequency identification (RFID) implementation, we can easily identify fake copies. As a result we do not run the risk of accepting them into our system and spending extra money on repair and maintenance of these items, which are generally poor quality."
He added: "Most of our growth comes from our container activities, and during the recent tagging campaign, a lot of new customers signed up for the system. As a result, we now have close to four-million containers operating in the system in Europe."
As well as the new RFID tagging system, Container Centralen introduced a new range of low-noise load carriers last year.
Vangsgaard Gravesen said: "The immediate reaction has been very positive and we have already delivered our first orders of low-noise transport equipment. Apart from being suitable for areas with noise restrictions, this equipment is also lighter and more ergonomically correct."

"It has been a challenging period but we are now having record sale weeks and the logjam we all feared has not happened. We do appreciate a reduction in pool fees. Container Centralen is doing what it said it would, which we regard as a positive outcome particularly when fuel costs are increasing."
