A food and beverage distributor was handling pallet management internally and they were concerned about costs, sustainability and safety. They wanted to understand how our expertise could improve their operations and how we could manage everything so they could focus on their business more effectively. We conducted an analysis to uncover how our Total Pallet Management (TPM) Program could provide substantial value.
TPM provides end-to-end services and solutions. We looked at providing on-site labor — unloading and sorting all dunnage trailers, sorting and repairing pallets, removing and recycling waste, increasing coverage times to accommodate overnight operations and helping them manage surge requests. We also showed them how PrimeVision® and our Prime360 Dashboard would add transparency and visibility into their operations — giving them insight and control into our daily activities throughout the process.
We provided a rebate for more than 400,000 white wood pallets in the first quarter of this year. We also managed over 75,000 pooler pallets. This initiative helped our customers reduce costs, increase profitability and measure sustainability efforts more effectively. The Prime360 Dashboard is our customizable technology platform that allows management to continually monitor operations to ensure efficiency and optimization.
