ORLANDO, Fla., Oct. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Intelligent Global Pooling Systems (iGPS Company, LLC), provider of the world's first pallet rental solution featuring 100% recyclable plastic pallets with embedded radio frequency identification (RFID) tags, announced today that it will present new findings detailing the bottom-line savings that businesses realize when they ship goods on lightweight shipping platforms. The findings will be presented by Jack Sparn, Chief Innovation Officer of iGPS.
"New independent studies have detailed how lightweight shipping platforms drive waste out of the supply chain for both manufacturers/growers and retailers," said Sparn. "These platforms lower transport costs, reduce production downtime, lessen product damage and help prevent worker injuries and even lessen damage to material handling equipment."

Aside from providing savings, iGPS is setting a new standard in pallet hygiene, as its pallets are easily cleaned, do not absorb fluids that can cross-contaminate food and other consumer products and never require treatment with toxic pesticides or fungicides. In fact, iGPS' pallet is the world's only rental pallet to receive Food Equipment Certification from NSF International, the foremost testing and certification authority with respect to food-related equipment.
