Product damage in the supply chain is a multi-billion dollar problem. According to the Food Marketing Institute (FMI), the grocery industry alone sustains nearly $20 billion in damaged merchandise yearly. While there are many causes of product damage, broken or easily-damaged pallets play a major role.
In fact, just one broken pallet can lead to the rejection of an entire truckload of goods. iGPS’ platform has been designed from the ground up to set a new standard in pallet strength, durability, and product protection. Utilizing modern materials and advanced design technology, it’s a world apart from the typical wood pallet. In fact, a major independent study has found that when businesses switch from wood pallets to iGPS’ plastic platform, manufacturers and retailers reduce product damage expense by as much as $0.26 to $0.42 per pallet load, respectively.
