As global warming concerns intensify, sustainability has become a core issue for supply chain operations. At iGPS, we can help you create a greener supply chain by switching from wood pallets to iGPS’ 100% recyclable, and sustainable plastic rental pallets with embedded radio frequency identification (RFID) tags. And as your carbon footprint decreases, so will your total cost of business (TCOB).
Why Choose iGPS Plastic Pallets Over Multi-Use Wood Pallets
The environmental and sustainability benefits of plastic over wood are undeniable. A 2020 study performed by Environmental Resource Management, a leading global provider of environmental consulting services, analyzed the environmental impact of iGPS’ plastic pallets versus multi-use pooled wood pallets. Conducted following international standards including ISO, the analyses examined the “cradle-to-grave” impact each type of pallet has on the environment, including ozone layer depletion, global warming potential, and eco-toxicity. In addition to showing that the iGPS pallet is more durable and has a much longer lifespan, the studies also showed that the plastic pallet has dramatically less environmental impact than its wood counterpart.
iGPS is recognized for sustainable supply chain solutions that not only make our planet better, but also reduce your total cost of business.
