Cost cutting pallet purchases

The National Wooden Pallet and Container Assn. (Arlington, VA) has introduced a new twelve-page, full-color booklet titled "How to Save Money on Pallets." The booklet offers seven money-saving "lessons" with tips on how to reduce costs throughout the whole life of the pallet.

Topics covered include: looking at cost per trip of the pallet in addition to initial purchase price, design of the pallets, pallet handling to reduce damage, and adopting a pallet quality program.
