What is it?

TPM is a complete pallet management service that involves all aspects of the customer's pallet maintenance. This includes sorting pallets either onsite with a dedicated UPSI team at the customer's facility or off-site at UPSI's facility. We will sort and inspect pallets to a pre-determined spec that meets the storage and handling needs of the customer. The program is designed so that only "in-spec" pallets are reintroduced into the customer's facility all the while providing complete reporting to management. All damaged pallets are either repaired to spec or removed from the customer's pallet supply. Odd-size and scrap pallets are removed and transferred to UPSI's facility.
