Pallet program management
With decades in the supply chain trenches, 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. 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.
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.
Gather the data you need
Pallet Alliance has developed IntelliPallet, the industry’s first IoT-based logistics platform integrated with wooden pallets. IntelliPallet technology enables you to track cargo by individual pallet when it departs, while it travels, and when it arrives. The ability to capture data such as location, temperature, humidity, light exposure, and more helps companies add accountability, prevent theft, and eliminate inefficiencies.
Personalized support brings ongoing value
Pallet Alliance believes that a deep understanding of each customer’s operations is the foundation of a successful pallet program. A personalized pallet 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 Pallet Alliance leverage the power of standardization by coordinating between sites, and the utilization of regional material sources reduces cost without compromising quality. Pallet Alliance’s big-picture mindset also considers factors beyond the pallet, from updating plant machinery and optimizing internal processes, to covering all failure points and reducing long-term total financial outlay.
