ORLANDO, Fla., April 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- iGPS Logistics, the leading plastic pallet pooling service provider in North America, continues to set the industry standard for sustainable shipping solutions in the expansive supply chain industry and related trades -- including food processing and retail manufacturing. As climate change and environmental issues take on greater importance for consumers across the United States and the world, iGPS continues to stand at the forefront of "green" products and practices.
"Prioritizing green practices means minimizing waste, shrinkage and providing clients with unparalleled efficiency to lower their total costs of business, in addition to addressing concerns of climate change and related issues," stated Jeff Liebesman, CEO of iGPS. "We are committed to offering a full suite of benefits and services through our advanced plastic pallet technology, with pallets' environmental sustainability as a central feature."
iGPS specializes in advanced plastic pallet technology, which is sturdier, lighter, more hygienic, and, most notable, more sustainable than wooden alternatives. iGPS pallets are fully recyclable and made from 100% recycled material, not prone to splintering or breaking, and of a consistent size, shape and weight. That allows companies to ship products, whether perishable, sensitive, or otherwise, around the world at much lower costs and with significantly less environmental impact.
For its customers, iGPS offers its Total Pallet Management Solution program, which, in addition to supplying high quality plastic pallets, provides clients with a complete critical analysis of workflow and supply chain systems. Clients enjoy lower costs not only from iGPS' efficient pallet manufacturing process, but also from the company's "track and trace" system that embeds RFID chips in each pallet to monitor for damages and flaws in the supply chain that can be reviewed and amended for further savings.
In recent years, the grocery and food supply industry has undergone great advances in distribution efficiency and efficacy, with an emphasis on hygiene, as those processes increasingly become more automated. Previous challenges concerned quality issues, breakage and hygiene issues inherent with traditional shipping platforms – such as wood pallets. As companies worldwide are embracing new supply chain technology as provided by iGPS, these challenges are becoming more and more uncommon – while food supply becomes more efficient, sanitary, and sustainable.
