European leader in refrigerated vehicle and container rental

Always looking for new solutions

Petit Forestier invests in innovation with the aim of providing innovative and practical solutions.

Our approach is to encourage experimentation. The work done by our research departments in partnership with the main players in our industry positions us as a source of new ideas. Being capable of anticipating change, developing new techniques and improving our refrigeration management practices gives us considerable competitive advantage and enables us to occupy centre stage in our chosen field, while offering our customers innovative and exclusive products.

Whereas our approach is clearly guided by the environmental issues of tomorrow and makes our range of refrigerated products and quality of service the top priorities, it also extends to all the fields related to our business. Innovation in terms of the construction of our workshops, with the creation of Cémafroid bays to control temperature entirely designed by Petit Forestier, is just one example among many.

Sustainable Development

A full time preoccupation

Looking resolutely to the future and concerned for the world of tomorrow, Petit Forestier attempts to integrate sustainable development into the daily life of the company and has responsible social, economic and environmental policies that take these challenges fully into account.

Our approach involves the implementation of corresponding practices and protocols in all areas of the business. We demand efforts by our suppliers and subcontractors, involve our employees and, in the eyes of public authorities and institutions, we represent a reliable partner. We respect and encourage regulations in the areas of the environment, labour and economic development, including in our international network. This strategy concerns all our services, products, purchases, properties, human resources…

The partnerships developed with manufacturers and institutions are just one illustration of our commitment. Our efforts also take the form of civic actions, initiating or participating in long term projects capable of producing benefits for the whole community.



For Petit Forestier, the choice of a supplier is based on ability, reliability and trust.
After signing an agreement, Petit Forestier issues a national listing for application in the French network and the international sites.

Petit Forestier favours loyal partnerships with its suppliers and, above and beyond a simple commercial arrangement, often works with suppliers in the early stages when launching new products.
