Cocoa Services West (CSW) in Union City, Calif. did a pilot test of just a few pointGUARD complete package (CP) pallets and quickly found that they eliminated the hassle of dealing with splinters, making for a safer production area.
“With the pointGUARD, the plastic encases the wood so we no longer have the splinters near our production,” said Tim Doudell, operations manager at CSW. “So it’s a very good product for us.”
The pointGUARD pallet protectors are patented unique plastic inserts that attach to the entry points of wooden pallets that are designed to protect pallets from forklift and strapping damage while also defending the product traveling on the pallet.

According to United Pallet Services, the pointGUARD can reduce pallet damage, pallet replacement costs, and product damage related costs due to forklift or strapping damage by up to 80%.
