Assess Your Pallets and Start Saving
With prices rising on just about everything, finding ways to save is critical. Your pallet program is a great place to start. However, it’s not as simple as switching to a different size or type of lumber. There is strategy involved…
Spring is the perfect time to take a fresh look at your pallet inventory. Assessing now may help you realize valuable savings. But be aware, even though there are many pallet options, one-size or one-type does not fit all requirements. Here’s what you need to know.
Why Pallet Type is Important
Pallet type and quality have a significant impact on loading and unloading time, safety, and cost. Using the wrong ones can slow down distribution or deliveries, thus impacting overall efficiency and—ultimately—the bottom line.
Which Pallet is Right for You?
Pallet choice boils down to four main considerations: What product is being shipped? What is the weight of the product? How durable does the pallet need to be? And how do pallets function within your organization? Some industries, such as pharmaceutical and food & beverage, have specific shipping requirements and operate in closed-loop pallet networks. But, for most companies, a variety of pallet options can work well. However, this also creates room for error.
Rose Pallet can come on site to your facility to personally review your shipping and warehouse operations. Based on our assessment and discussion with you, we can design a custom pallet based on your unique system requirements and the product being handled. We can even create cost comparisons for two or more options–the savings might stack up!
Using the proper pallet can make a difference in not only cost and efficiency, but also peace of mind. There is nothing worse than spending time, effort, and resources on a product only to have it damaged in transit.
