PALLETS ARE CRUCIAL TO YOUR SUPPLY CHAIN…
THE CORNERSTONE OF YOUR BUSINESS.
AND THEY ARE COSTING YOU MORE THAN YOU THINK.
Each year, low quality, non-standardized and poorly maintained pallets account for millions of dollars in damage to valuable shipments and inventory. Take a look around any warehouse and you’re likely to see the effects. Furthermore, lost pallets in the supply chain add to the already high cost of a one-way pallet model.
A pool of high-quality pallets, managed in a cooperative closed loop, that’s maintained and tracked throughout its lifecycle, is not only the solution, it’s the future of materials handling. In the USA, 9BLOC is creating that future.
