Proprietary tracking technology employed by Intelligent Global Pooling Systems (iGPS Company, LLC), operator of the world’s first pallet rental service to provide lightweight, 100 percent recyclable plastic pallets, assisted the Virginia State Police in uncovering a large cache of misappropriated plastic pallets and containers at a pallet manufacturing and recycling firm operating in New Kent County, Virginia. According to law enforcement officials, business records and other items on the premises have been confiscated and the investigation is ongoing.
“With the rising value of plastics, some individuals have come to believe that they can steal and resell plastic pallets and containers with impunity,” said Al Farrell, Vice President of Asset Management at iGPS. “The police action in this case, and other investigations currently underway, should serve as a warning that technology exists to uncover this illegal activity and law enforcement officials are increasingly committed to stopping it and punishing offenders.”
“Once again, our proprietary asset tracking technology has aided in locating illegal activities,” added Farrell. “We look forward to continuing to work with law enforcement officials to identify and prosecute wrongdoers.”
