Pallet Management Solutions
We can help you better manage your Hired Pooled Pallets.
Pallets how do they stack up?
For such a simple piece of equipment, pooled pallets can stir up a lot of interest and mostly for the wrong reasons. In most industries (especially low cost FMCG) that utilise their services, the pooled pallet is still the cheapest and most efficient way to move your product.
Most businesses pay attention to the materials they produce, sell or distribute and keep adequate controls and cost analysis to ensure thier integrity. The same can't always be said for the humble pallet. By introducing proactive approach to managing pooled pallets throughout the supply chain significant savings can be realised. Not only in loss prevention and recovery but in best utilising the piece of equipment that you are paying daily hire for.
At Actum we can put in place a total pallet management solution that becomes your own. It will make your business a leader in best practice pallet management and save you money.
Get started on a solution
At Actum we can ascertain the health of your pallet management processes by conducting an initial audit. This will help us to understand your business and identify your current position in relation to pooled pallets. We do this by:
Reviewing the current strategy and process that is in place.
Working with you and your team to understand their role in the process.
Performing an initial stock-take to determine the integrity of your existing controls.
We can then produce a report that will identify:
Any current losses or liabilities
Areas of improvement in process and personnel

From this information we can work with you and your team to develop and implement improvements in strategy and process to develop best practice pallet management.
