SCM has three levels of activities namely: Strategic, Tactical and Operational. Premier Pallets CC can assist in the Strategic and Operational levels by evaluating the infrastructure of a company, the manufacturing process and the choice of pallets as the products move along the supply chain. Investing in the wrong pallet, can be costly and can also impact on safety and health issues.
The world has entered the Globalization era in die late 1980’s. International criteria or legislation can play a vital role in which pallets will be used to ship the products to different parts of the world.
