Numerous companies use wood pallets based off the traditional school of thought that wood pallets will work for most applications. After discussing their current operation more in-depth, IPS decided to be a little creative behind their packaging operation.
A company was previously using wooden pallets
A company contacted IPS stating that the use of wooden pallets is no longer cost effective. IPS conducted an internal audit of their systems and discovered the the company needed to use over one million pallets per year. At $6.00 per pallet, the company was spending in excess of $6,000,000 per year!
Switch to Slip sheets
Upon completion on a systems audit, IPS concluded that a switch to slip sheets would be cost effective. A simple switch to slip sheets instead of wooded pallets saved the company over 75% per year!
