When calculating shipping costs and fuel efficiency, there is a hidden factor you should consider: pallet efficiency.
Wood block pallets typically weigh 65-75 pounds, and this weight will contribute significantly to your total fuel costs, transport expense and carbon output. Reducing pallet weight can produce immediate savings.
Lamonica’s Pizza Dough, a historic family-owned company, discovered these savings when they switched to iGPS plastic pallets. Because these pallets are lighter, Lamonica is able to reduce the weight of every truckload by about 380 pounds, adding to both a fuel cost savings and reduced greenhouse emissions.
By moving to iGPS’ innovative pooling model, Lamonica’s also formed strategic partnerships that enabled the company to realize even more efficiency in their supply chain. Learn more about how switching to iGPS plastic pallets helped Lamonica’s reduce waste and lower their total cost of business.
