In recognition of PECO Pallet’s ongoing commitment to environmental sustainability, the pallet pooling company was recently named a Green 75 Supply Chain Partner by Inbound Logistics magazine. PECO is profiled in the special June 2015 “Lean and Green” issue as one of the top 75 companies in supply chain sustainability.
As the North American leader in pallet rental services, PECO Pallet provides high-quality wood pallets for grocery and consumer goods manufacturers throughout the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. PECO’s sturdy block pallets are built from responsibly forested timber and are constantly reused, repaired, and recycled. Companies who utilize PECO’s pooled pallets can eliminate the waste, inefficiency, and safety problems associated with single-use or low-quality pallets.
PECO offers a number of benefits to customers looking for more sustainable shipping solutions and long-term cost savings. PECO inspects, cleans, and repairs pallets every time they cycle through a depot to ensure that customers consistently receive high-quality pallets that work smoothly in automated production lines. Block pallets offer exceptional structural rigidity, reducing the need for customer-supplied slip sheets or excess packaging to maintain product integrity. PECO’s true 4-way block pallets can also be stacked and transported more efficiently than conventional notched stringer pallets, which cuts down on fuel costs and emissions.
Adrian Potgieter, PECO Pallet’s Senior Vice President of Sales, said, “PECO Pallet is proud to be named to the G75 list for the fourth year in a row. Environmental sustainability truly is at the very heart of our company, and we provide simply the best quality and service in the industry today. We encourage customers who want to ‘go green’ to switch to red, so they can enjoy the benefits of a more sustainable shipping solution as well as long-term TCO savings throughout the supply chain.”
