Case Study: Company XXX and ELM - working together for efficiency, cost savings, better customer service and a better future.

What made them sign up for the new deal?

XXX's decision to implement a pallet return service is driven by the opportunity to combine a customer service improvement initiative with a desire to encourage practices that benefit the environment.

By recovering and re-using their pallets, XXX hope to significantly reduce their requirement for the purchase of new pallets. This fits perfectly with their environmental policy.

XXX’s customers will benefit from a convenient and auditable method for pallet return. Many XXX customers are currently progressing with their own ‘Environmental Initiatives’ and this service dovetails nicely with their objectives in that area, including cost savings on packaging waste disposal.
