We keep inventory fresh to ensure quality and keep our pallet supply chain tight. Efficient core processing, pallet production and inventory rotation are key to keeping our products in peak condition and ready for distribution.
Managing a pallet inventory is about more than just having appropriate stock. Especially in facilities like ours that process and repair recycled pallets as well as produce new and custom pallets, efficient management involves a lot of thought around rotation, storage and number of touches.

Intelligent and efficient management and storage of pallets is the heart of our quick deliveries and high quality standards. Through quick turnaround we:
Keep standards high as individual pallets have more visibility
Reduce risk of mold
Reduce shipment times
Keep production efficient
More easily accommodate last-minute orders
Our inventory is separated and stored by grade, size and type of pallet. GMA pallets, which make up the largest portion of our inventory, are stored by grade. Pallet Consultants also specializes in custom and specialty pallets, which are stored together.
All inventory is stored so that it can easily be rotated as orders leave and materials come. Pallet inventory that will be used quickly, those pallets will not even leave loading docks before they are loaded for delivery.
Pallet Consultants also produces large volumes of recycled pallets, which necessitates efficiently bringing in and dismantling or repairing used pallets. Used pallets are brought into our facilities as they come in, or are stored outside before being rotated into the facility as space allows.
Less handling of pallets means higher efficiency, which is why the majority of our inventory is stored indoors. This control over the storage environment reduces risk of mold, rot and ultimately means cleaner pallets. Indoor storage also means less handling and shorter load times, allowing us to load deliveries days ahead of time in some cases.
We keep our inventory fresh and flexible at Pallet Consultants by:
Repairing or dismantling used pallets promptly
Storing as much inventory inside as possible
Keeping our stock of pallets rotated with minimal handling
Maintaining inventory at levels necessary to accommodate all orders
