What Is Total Pallet Management?
Total Pallet Management is services provided by pallet providers that involve the operation and maintenance of a company’s pallet inventory.
TPM or Total Pallet Management are services that Pallet Consultants provide, as well as many other logistics and pallet companies. These services are useful for larger facilities that require constant supplies of pallets, along with monitoring their inventory of pallets.
With these services, the Pallet Consultant takes on all the responsibilities of inventory upkeep and pallet maintenance. TPM typically begins with audits of the facility along with how the pallets are used. This provides the Total Pallet Management provider with the information needed on the quality, type, number, and size of the pallets needed for a facility to operate.
With TPM, the provider will ensure that the business always has enough pallets and that the deliveries are scheduled at convenient times for the business. The excess pallets are also collected in a certain way so that it maximizes warehouse and storage space, while still making sure there are enough pallets to perform normal processes.
Pallet repairs are one of the other large benefits associated with inventory management. Whether conducted off-site or on-site, pallet repairs will ensure that damaged pallets will be repaired quickly and properly. Some of the companies that provide pallet management services even provide the necessary staff along with equipment such as forklifts.
The ideal pallet suppliers are also capable of handling operations across multiple locations and facilities, which provides a way for business owners to consolidate their vendors. For large operations, vendor consolidation becomes important, since the pallet service provider will have nationwide locations and the industry know-how to support the needs of the business owner. Vendor consolidation and national networks is an area where correctly vetting a pallet partner is vital to improve the operations pallet situation, along with maintaining beneficial business relationships.
