Pallet Management Services
To Olympic, providing pallets on time and to specification is a given and just the start. Whether we are servicing a customer with a single plant or a complex national account, we work relentlessly to advance your pallet program. We take a comprehensive approach and expertly manage all aspects including raw materials, unit load analysis, customers’ products and systems, logistics, and unparalleled customer service, to name a few of the variables. We take pride in developing and continually improving customized programs for each of our customers.
Pallet Retrieval and Return Programs
Pallet retrieval and repair programs are often a great opportunity for customers to significantly reduce the overall cost of pallets. These programs also advance sustainability initiatives and we provide you the data to support it. Through our Pallet Optimization Review Process, Olympic can assess and present you with customized options.
Olympic is a leader in our field because of our in-depth knowledge of all areas related to pallets in your supply chain. We would be glad to answer any of your questions. Curious about new pallet material options? Wonder about mold or insect treatment alternative? What is the lumber outlook for the winter? Ask us. We are happy to help.
Taking a systems-based approach, Olympic considers the interaction of the pallet, packaging, and material handling equipment during production, distribution, and storage of your product. By analyzing these factors in the supply chain and providing sample truckloads or testing services as needed, we can offer options for streamlining your pallet program.
Olympic has an integrated office environment of people, processes, and technologies to seamlessly manage all aspects of our customers’ accounts. From order processing and accounting to managing complex repair and return programs, we do our job well, so you can focus on yours. Our focus on transparency and reporting gives you the tools to readily evaluate and manage your program.
Vendor Managed Inventory
With Olympic’s vendor managed inventory programs, we can monitor your onsite pallet levels and restock, as needed. Our team will work with you to determine requirements. We also have the capacity to inventory pallets at mills.
Olympic is committed to providing the best logistics alternatives, with an eye on budget, production demands, and the environment. With rising fuel costs, freight has increasingly become a larger part of the pallet cost and is critical to manage well. Evaluating transportation options is a vital component in driving down costs.
