Pallet Delivery & the Problem
Pallet delivery is important because this method of delivery is highly efficient and cost effective. Many delivery companies have millions of pallets moving through supply chains throughout different regions of the world. So what is the problem? It is extremely difficult to keep track of such a large number of pallets and therefore they are often lost or mishandled and the benefits of efficiency and cost are repudiated.
Companies are losing thousands of pallets each year. They are sometimes lost in transport, but often they are also misplaced while being stored in huge warehouses. Additionally, it’s not rare for pallets to be stolen. People steal pallets that are made of wood, plastic, and metal and then sell the materials for money. The goods in the pallets are also often lost making this problem even worse for companies making deliveries. There are have been scenarios where truck drivers even sell palettes to make some side money. Clearly, losses are potentially huge.
Location Tracker Solution
The tracker is so simple to set up. Companies just have to install a small, portable sensor to the pallet’s wit long battery life (up to 3 years of battery) and then they can begin to monitor and manage there locations. Alerts can be sent according to the settings set by the company. For example, if a palette leaves a specified location range, the company can be sent an immediate alert.
