PepsiCo Eliminating Wood Pallets for Plastic; Embedding iGPS for Supply Chain Management

March 24, 2009

According to this report on GreenBiz.com, PepsiCo's Quaker, Gatorade and Tropicana business units will begin switching away from wood pallets, and eventually ship all their products exclusively on plastic pallets from Intelligent Global Pooling Systems (iGPS) starting in April.

The report continues, "The plastic pallets from iGPS are about 30 percent lighter than wood pallets, can be fully recycled into new pallets when damaged. They are also embedded with radio frequency identification (RFID) tags, making it easy for companies to track them throughout their supply chains."
