Toro Pallets President Tiger Aster said the company has designed its pallets after thorough research to make them light, strong and fastener-free to protect the merchandise being transported.
Dallas, TX -- Dallas-based Toro Pallets recently launched a range of ultra-lightweight aluminum and hybrid transportation pallets.
The pallets were on display earlier this month at the 111th Annual Conference & Expo of the International Association of Operative Millers held at Overland Park Convention Center in Kansas. The event attracted top level management from various food processing companies such as Kraft, General Mills, Cereal Food Processors and Dover Flour, who had the opportunity to get a firsthand experience of the pallets.
Comments at the expo included: “It’s really light compared to what we use,” “It is amazing to see a pallet that has no screws, bolts or nails on the surface and does not splinter like wood” and “These pallets could reduce our insurance premiums at our warehouses.”
“Our core focus is the food and pharmaceutical industry, where hygiene and sanitation are a primary concern,” said Tiger Aster, President of Toro Pallets. “We designed our pallets after thorough research to make them light, strong and fastener-free to protect the merchandise being transported.”
He added, “Our patented pallet design addresses some of the basic logistics requirements such as transportation cost savings, product safety, phytosanitation regulations and traceability using RFID tags, which could include temperature sensing devices for real time monitoring of time and temperature sensitive products.”
The pallets, weighing in the range of 25 and 40 pounds each, can cause a substantial impact on logistic costs as transportation and fuel prices are on a steady rise.
“A 24-foot trailer with 12 Toro pallets loaded could reduce the net weight by 300 pounds,” Mr. Aster said. “It may seem insignificant at the beginning, but it is worth millions of dollars in annual transportation costs.”
