Businesses need pallets before they can ship goods. Foundational to shipping and receiving, trucking and distribution, commerce and trade, the wooden pallet and skid business is brisk and strong demand for these handling workhorses is expected to continue.
Having pallets move through the supply chain quickly is a top priority. “That’s a very important role we play that gets overlooked,” said George Frack, president of BFTP client Nazareth Pallet Company.
Moving empty pallets out of a warehouse or distribution center to be refurbished and put back into service ensures supply houses don’t become bottlenecked, causing point of sale delays, Frack said.
