PalTrax™ Online Account Management

The better you can manage your pallets, the better you can manage your costs. Smart pallet management saves money and/or increases revenues. And no software does it smarter than PalTrax™, our exclusive pallet tracking software. Think of the benefits of being able to see all your pallet activity and identify best practices between facilities. Why does one facility spend 30% more on pallets than a similar facility 500 miles away? Why does one facility use $8.00 pallets when all the others use $5.00 pallets? Why do surplus pallet sales fade at the end of the month? Did I get credit for all my surplus pallet sales? What retrievals get me the most amount of money?
