Services

Polymer Logistics recognizes that a streamlined supply chain is a competitive advantage. By providing customized as well as standard supply chain management services, we help maximize efficiency, enabling our customers to focus on their core business. Our extensive pooling, tracking, washing and maintenance services have been thoughtfully designed to provide the optimal mix for addressing each customer's unique business needs.


Pooling

Pooling

Pooling is a system in which reusable pallets, crates and bins are shared among multiple customers who collectively benefit from savings created by the “network” established by Polymer Logistics. We offer leasing services, coordinate and connect the network “players”, and provide delivery and collection of the shipping crates, enabling our customers to:

  • Improve supply chain operations, thus reducing capital expenditures
  • Save money by eliminating one-way transport costs
  • Avoid the need for purchasing/maintaining costly equipment by leasing and paying for only what’s needed when needed
  • Benefit from our continuous innovation in the areas of platforms and systems
  • Feel confident in our ability to meet SLAs and stock requirements
  • Contribute to the reduction of fuel emissions

Tracking

Tracking

Polymer Logistics makes it easy for customers to access information relating to order tracking, invoicing and reporting. Available 24/7, our tracking software provides customers with an array of tools and information needed to efficiently manage the administrative side of the business.

  • We provide RFID, EDI or Manual tracking to accommodate customer needs and preferences
  • Our online system provides access to past invoices, enables customers to verify and print current invoices, validate transactions, and more…
  • Key customers receive a monthly detailed report on the performance of specific user defined KPI’s and SLA’s
  • Customers can define and generate various activity reports to closely monitor and better plan business activities

Cleaning & Maintenance

Cleaning & Maintenance

The popularity of reusable plastic crates and bins has led to the establishment of a multitude of sophisticated maintenance centers where crates cycle through in preparation for the next rotation. Each Polymer Logistics crate, and those of other manufacturers, is inspected, washed and disinfected with antibacterial agents approved for organics by the FDA and OMRI (U.S) before being reintroduced back into the pool. Our centers include the most sophisticated and advanced processes available:

  • Highly automated to ensure uniform quality and minimize damage
  • Centrifuge drying process to ensure against dampness
  • Water source is 80% recycled
  • ‘Out of use products’ are ground for re-use in manufacturing (also available to 3rd parties)
  • The use of pure, organic cleaning ingredients
