ORLANDO, Fla., June 7, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ — Intelligent Global Pooling Systems (iGPS Company, LLC) announced today that Nice-Pak Products will significantly expand its use of iGPS’ all-plastic pallets with embedded RFID tags in 2012, quadrupling the companies’ existing relationship. Nice-Pak is the global leader in the design, manufacture, marketing and distribution of premium quality branded and private label pre-moistened wipe products. Through its consumer, institutional, healthcare and contract divisions, Nice-Pak supplies superior, leading-edge products to every class of trade.
“The decision to expand our relationship with iGPS is based on the extremely favorable results that iGPS’ solution has delivered for Nice-Pak,” said John Gallucci, Senior Director of Supply Chain for Nice-Pak. “Internal analysis confirms that the lighter weight of the iGPS platform, combined with our ability to eliminate slip sheets, has enabled us to realize dramatic cost savings when compared to wood platforms. We have also found that the pallet’s robust structure and uniform dimensions make it a safer platform for day-to-day use throughout our operation. In addition, the iGPS pallet also provides demonstrable environmental benefits over wood–an important consideration for our company.”
“We are delighted that our business with Nice-Pak Products will be growing,” said Dick DiStasio, CEO of iGPS. “Nice-Pak has led the explosive growth of the pre-moistened wipe market, with products that touch consumers 100 billion times per year. It is a true category leader who shares our commitment to creating a leaner, more efficient supply chain while also doing better for the environment.”
Switching from wood pallets to lighter-weight iGPS plastic platforms yields game-changing operational savings. Studies performed by iGPS customers consistently show bottom-line savings of up to $2 per pallet load, thanks to lower transport costs, dramatically reduced production downtime, larger loads per pallet, reduced product damage and fewer rejected loads. And iGPS platforms put an end to broken boards and protruding nails that can damage product and injure workers.
Aside from providing proven operational savings, iGPS is setting a new standard in pallet hygiene, as its pallets are easily cleaned, do not absorb fluids that can cross-contaminate food and other consumer products and never require treatment with toxic pesticides or fungicides. In fact, iGPS’ pallet is the world’s only rental pallet to receive Food Equipment Certification from NSF International, the foremost testing and certification authority with respect to food-related equipment.
iGPS provides the world’s leading companies with the most advanced and cost-efficient platform-based shipping solutions available today. The company’s lightweight, 100% recyclable plastic pallets and integrated technologies yield dramatic savings in transport and production costs and provide new levels of operating efficiency, product safety and customer satisfaction. The world’s only multi-use pallet to receive NSF Food Equipment Certification, iGPS’ platform is a major advance in supply chain hygiene–a platform that is easily cleaned, will not absorb fluids that can lead to contamination and never requires treatment with toxic pesticides or fungicides. Measuring a true 48″ x 40″, iGPS’s platform enables larger load patterns and is ideally suited for automated environments. And it puts an end to broken boards and protruding nails that can damage equipment endanger workers, jam production lines and litter workplaces. An independent life cycle analysis has documented that iGPS’ solution is dramatically better for the environment than both one-way and multiuse wood pallets. Switching to iGPS is fast and easy, and the benefits begin on day one. For more information please contact us at 1-800-884-0225 or visit www.igps.net .
