PALLET MANAGEMENT SERVICES
Services and Solutions: We can tailor a comprehensive pallet account management package that is designed to control your hired equipment and provide support for related operational activities.
PALLET ACCOUNT AUDIT
It is important to understand the status of your pallet account in order to manage and reduce your potential risk.
Identification of lost equipment
A physical count of all hire equipment can be conducted and compared to the quantity of equipment being charged out by the hire company, to determine losses.
Redemption of equipment lost
Where records exist, we will co-ordinate with your trading partners and attempt to retrieve all outstanding equipment. Where records are not available, or equipment is unredeemable, we will provide cost data on compensation payments to the hire company and any other available options.
PALLET SERVICES INCLUDE
Audit of operations
We will require access to operations and administration staff who handle equipment and related documentation in order to form a detailed understanding of the arrangements currently in place.
Trading partner requirements
We will identify the receiving policies of your trading partners and develop documentation to ensure those responsible for raising transfers can do so correctly.
