Pallet program management
With decades in the supply chain trenches, The Pallet Alliance knows the pressure facing corporations to do more with less. Ambitious performance benchmarks coupled with tight cost controls push purchasers to squeeze every ounce of efficiency from operations – including pallets.
A successfully managed pallet program balances performance, safety and cost.
The right single-source procurement formula provides coherence and stability in an often fragmented, inconsistent market. The Pallet Alliance brings a big-picture, collaborative mindset with extensive knowledge of pallets and material handling operations to build comprehensive programs and forge long-lasting partnerships.
A network that works
All pallet management companies have a large network of manufacturers. What sets apart the best is how they leverage those relationships to produce maximum value.
The Pallet Alliance relies on a network defined by quantity and quality, with long-term, trusted partnerships that span the country. Customers benefit from a deep knowledge of supplier capabilities and raw material markets that yield the most competitive pricing, highest quality and consistent supply—even in challenging market conditions.
Personalized support brings ongoing value
The Pallet Alliance believes that a close familiarity with customer operations is the foundation of a successful pallet program. A personalized plant management approach skips the call center in favor of a dedicated customer service specialist for faster response and a more sophisticated level of support. Program development specialists routinely visit customer and vendor sites to ensure quality production, monitor pallet performance and provide consultation to enhance overall operational efficiency.
Control costs without compromising performance
Firsthand experience in warehouses and manufacturing facilities enhances the ability to identify and control key cost drivers of pallet programs. Custom solutions from The Pallet Alliance leverage the power of standardization by coordinating between sites and utilizing regional materials to reduce cost without compromising quality. The Pallet Alliance’s big-picture mindset also considers factors beyond the pallet, from updating plant machinery and optimizing internal processes, to cover all failure points and reduce long-term total financial outlay.
