We guarantee our unit load consulting services will reduce your pallet costs. Using the principles of systems based design, a proven process that maximizes the relationship between the design and performance of the unit load, we deliver:

- Lower Packaging Costs
- Increased Unit Load Handling Speed
- Improved Storage & Shipping Space Efficiency
- More Efficient Use of Natural Resources
Our trained professionals conduct site audits and interviews to determine the most cost-efficient means for you to manage your pallet supply. We leverage our product knowledge and national network of quality suppliers to organize a program that meets your needs. We do more than recommend, we implement. Our consulting services include pallet redesign, pallet standardization and RFP preparation.
We offer extensive pallet redesign expertise. Using both Best Pallet™ and Pallet Design System© (PDS) our team can troubleshoot packaging performance problems and recommend design improvements that eliminate product damage. Our design and use analysis ensures that you’re getting superior performance at the best possible price.
Consolidating pallet designs allows you to achieve economies of scale and creates a more efficient storage and shipping cube utilization. Also, consolidating pallet designs means increased quantities and enhanced buying power, bringing prices down. Our team will evaluate your pallet inventory, production line, shipping and handling procedures and storage systems to determine the best opportunities for standardizing platforms. We can also research your customer’s supply chain to maximize the possibility for a return on your pallet investment through resale, reuse or a repair/retrieval program.
We conduct site audits and draft pallet and packaging specifications that reflect the wood packaging your warehouses are actually using. We analyze the designs for safe load tolerance and performance. We can also manage the entire bid process, using our experience to identify qualified manufacturers, negotiate valued-added services and implement cost-reduction strategies in pallet sourcing and raw material supply.
