European leader in refrigerated vehicle and container rental

Solutrans 2017: Petit Forestier marks its place as a provider of solutions in the transformation of the truck industry

Petit Forestier invites you to visit its stand, on Tuesday 21 November in the morning, to discover its new concept CoolLab®, a laboratory for ideas and experimentation.

In line with our cold chain rental business, CoolLab® gives our expertise greater visibility. This ideas laboratory enables us to address the new environmental challenges and urban constraints that our customers must deal with in their temperature-controlled activities.

Through collaborations and exchanges with our manufacturer partners, CoolLab® identifies the different technical solutions available, combines them - focusing on the chassis, engine, refrigeration unit, truck box and fixtures - to provide long-term, economically viable responses to our customers.

With CoolLab®, Petit Forestier aims to offer its customers innovative and sustainable products, resulting from an equation with three variables: product quality, customer expectations, economic reality.

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.
