Entering a warehouse and experiencing its operations, seeing pallets sitting quietly on top of each rack level may not be as striking as to seeing an actual forklift running around the area or an ASRS working like a 24/7 giant robot. But, there is more to these silent beasts that meet our eyes.
Pallets serve a critical role in promoting efficiency and economies in a demand-driven supply chain. They are like the beasts of burden carrying and moving different types of goods seamlessly connecting manufacturers, distributors, retailers, and transportation and logistics service providers across diverse industries.
More than this, pallets are the first line of defense to safeguard the quality of loads or shipments traveling across all points in the supply chain. Pallets, of high quality and durability, enable increased shipment volume, improved warehouse, and transportation safety, reduced logistics and warehouse costs, and protect product quality against breakage or damage.
THE RIGHT CHOICE FOR EVERY INDUSTRY
Understanding the power of pallets in a supply chain, it has become clear that making the right choice is critical, something that must not be taken for granted. Talking about making the right choice, preference, and purchase of pallets based solely on low-cost consideration is discouraged. Instead, end-users must anchor their decision based on their specific needs. The strength and functionality of the pallets must be keenly evaluated.
Pallets are ubiquitous in the supply chain, however, they don't work in an autonomous system. Instead, pallets are part of a more complex integrated storage system synchronizing the racking system, material handling equipment, and pallets. Prime Sales, Inc. profoundly understands this framework vital to the supply chain.
