Returnable Plastic Pallet
The current business climate is encouraging companies to move toward reusable shipping methods. Everyone needs to find savings to offset cost increases for fuel, labor and production materials. Reusable and returnable shipping containers can save companies significant money over the next few years.
Many managers fail to realize the resources for reusable shipping available at their fingertips. There are three tools available to every business that decrease prices and environmental impacts of production:
- Reusable pallets and bins
- Localized processing and finishing
- Smarter route planning
Cut Costs with Reusable Shipping
It is difficult to pursue reusable shipping on a larger scale without switching to plastic pallets and containers. Returnable containers built out of molded plastic can withstand thousands of trips to warehouses and retailers without structural damage when used properly.
Another initiative that can help companies decrease shipping costs while increasing public esteem is localized production. Every business should look for local companies near hub stores and warehouses that can perform assembly, painting and finishing before delivery. This step streamlines the supply chain by cutting out transcontinental and international shipments for post-production processes. The introduction of smart route planning within a business ensures that every pallet is filled, delivered and returned. This type of planning dictates certain days for delivery to avoid empty pallets and poorly packed products from leaving warehouses.
