Moving towards a Pallet-Free World

We're leading a movement away from the old ways of shipping and storage, which often lean heavily on wooden pallets. This change is not just about cutting costs—it's about caring for our planet too.

They’re made from trees we can’t afford to lose, and treating them to be safe for use involves chemicals we’re better off without. By moving towards alternatives like slip sheets, we’re not just making a smart business decision. We’re joining hands in a collective effort to make choices that are better for our planet.

This added weight directly impacts shipping costs and the efficiency of material handling.

Transitioning to pallet-free shipping methods, such as utilizing slip sheets, not only reduces these costs but also mitigates our environmental footprint. By enhancing the efficiency of shipments, companies can achieve substantial savings in direct packaging and labor costs. 

Furthermore, the increased payload per shipment translates to reduced fuel consumption, thereby lowering the associated expenses and environmental impact—ranging from decreased gasoline usage to less wear and tear on infrastructure like roads and tires
