We specialize in niche products and pride ourselves in service of integrity and quality of products. We extend our services to include product inventory management and close-loop systems with intent on focusing on sustainability and lean construction processes. Our customers appreciate customized options to meet their unique demand.
A closed-loop program (CLP) is a special situation where companies and their suppliers or customers have a regular flow of goods moving between them. In these cases, both shipper and receiver can potentially benefit from re-using the pallets involved. Our team provides on-site sorting and rebuilding of usable pallets to reengage them back into your inventory within-hours. We can provide full service pick-up of empty pallets within the Houston area, return them to your site closing the loop and cutting the cost of purchasing new pallets.
Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) program consists of our staff going to their facilities on a weekly basis to manage the pallet inventory on-site. By allowing us access to their facility and their production schedule, we have been able to allow the customer to refocus their efforts toward their core business and allow us to focus on their inventory and shipping processes.
