Cleaner. Lighter. Better. And carefully designed for supply chain optimization, safety, and resiliency. Tessco is bringing to market a new hygienic plastic pallet with permeable antimicrobial protection that's made in the USA and guaranteed for life.
Our melt-blend method prepares our polymers during processing --transforming them into an antimicrobial polymer.
The platform that products travel on has the potential not only to contaminate the product loaded on it, but also to spread that contamination throughout a plant or distribution center. So we are tackling this issue of prevention within four key industries.
It takes a lot of medical supplies to care for patients. Since most hospital supplies are not stored on-site, the delivery dock is ground zero for supply chain operations. That is why we are doing essential programs with the leading performance improvement company for healthcare.
Every year, more than 48 million Americans are stricken with food-borne illnesses caused by cross-contamination from wooden pallets. (Source: CDC) Our new antimicrobial pallet is a critical component to delivering food safety while meeting FDA/FSMA compliance. Unlike other antimicrobial technologies that inhibit growth of bacteria on top of surfaces, our technology is bonded inside and becomes part of the DNA of the pallet.
Nothing is more vital than safeguarding a pharmaceutical supply chain as it carries life-saving medicine to the people that need it most. Our broad-spectrum antimicrobial pallets are ideal when product safety is paramount. Our pallets prevent bacterial and microbial growth for life. This provides peace of mind and helps eliminate costly recalls caused by pallet contamination.
Working with multinational technology companies that design, develop, and sell consumer electronics, we are reimagining pallets that are safer, static-free, and sustainable. Our closed-loop, reverse logistics approach is also an integral part of distribution.
Providing a hallmark of microbial protection and supply chain resilience, the Tessco pallet provides a stark contrast to traditional wood pallets.
“Coronavirus Is a Wake-Up Call for Supply Chain Management. Heed the lessons of this crisis and make investments.”
"Pallets are now a crucial part of many companies' sustainability strategies based on the recyclability of materials and the use of the assets."
“The pandemic is testing supply chains in a manner few have seen in our lifetimes." This is a big deal that we should all pay attention.
As part of the ‘Circular Economy’, closed-loop systems keep materials at their highest utility and value. This reduces the need for extracting new resources, which then cuts the related impacts on the environment while capturing untapped value. Read more about sustainability.
