The humble pallet once attracted little more attention than the foundation of a building. Cracks and leaks in a foundation might call for a bit of plastic or cement, but are often ignored.
The modern supply chain can’t afford cracks of any kind, and a more apt analogy might compare pallets to a vehicle’s tires. The smallest leak in performance or cost can bring a lean, nimble and speedy supply chain to a halt.
During this 30-minute webcast we’ll examine how Modern’s readers use pallets to keep the wheels turning as they maneuver a road filled with sharp edges and potholes.
Attend this session to learn more about:
- Trends driving the evaluation, adoption and management of conventional and alternative pallets
- The determining factors for optimally pairing pallet with application
- Considerations when designing a pallet to interact with materials handling and transportation systems
- Added value a pallet may offer in a technology-enabled supply chain
