Pallets are a necessity for many businesses and can be a major expense.
Here are some strategies for businesses to reduce their pallet costs:
Buy in bulk: Larger orders from suppliers are frequently eligible for discounts.
Implement a pallet management program: Businesses can track the movement of pallets, cut waste, and optimize inventory levels with the use of a pallet management tool, which can eventually lower expenses.
Negotiate with suppliers: Companies that have a good working relationship with their suppliers and a steady ordering pattern can negotiate for reduced costs.
Consider alternative materials: Consider a combo pallet, which is a pallet that uses recycled and new wood.
Repurpose damaged pallets: Instead of discarding damaged pallets, businesses can sell their damaged pallets back to the manufacturer via recycling programs.
Partner with pallet manufacturers: Consider forming a partnership with the direct pallet manufacturers, this will cut additional fees.
