ORLANDO, Fla., Dec. 12, 2013 /CNW/ - iGPS Logistics and Nice-Pak Products, Inc. are proud to announce the extension of their agreement. Today's announcement is the result of a collaboration that began several years ago when Nice-Pak was seeking ways to create efficiencies within their supply chain. iGPS Logistics provides the world's leading companies with the most advanced and cost-efficient shipping platform available today. Nice-Pak Products, the global leader in wet wipes, has built its business by leading the way with new technologies, packaging and formulations, and their supply chain is no exception.
Paul Vanderheyden, SVP of Operations Nice-Pak said, "Nice-Pak is always looking for creative ways to differentiate our products and service. We prefer to look at things in a more holistic way by building strong relationships with our partners and understanding all opportunities to gain efficiencies in our supply chain. iGPS has proven their ability to drive efficiencies and we look forward to our continued partnership." Vanderheyden went on to say, "We selected iGPS as our pallet pooling partner to ensure our products arrive at their destination safely and in good condition. The iGPS pallets are 15 to 20 pounds lighter making them more user-friendly and efficient for our supply chain. The lighter weight allows us to reduce our carbon footprint and meet our "Thinking Clean, Working Green" sustainability goals.
Jeff Liebesman, iGPS Logistics CEO told Paul, "The support provided by Nice-Pak is important to us at this exciting stage of re-establishing the iGPS' plastic pallet pooling model as a compelling solution in North America. We particularly like the fact that Nice-Pak views iGPS as an important part of their go to market and customer service strategy."
"Our pallets are lighter, stronger, safer and greener than multi-use platforms made of wood and discretely traceable across the supply chain. Switching to iGPS pallets is fast and easy. Our pallets reduce waste, reduce transportation pollution, and save fuel. We are proud to help Nice-Pak achieve their sustainability goals by minimizing the company's impact on the environment."

About IGPS Logistics
iGPS pallets will generate measurable savings in transport, reduced product damage, and other operational efficiencies. The world's only multi-use pallet to receive NSF Food Equipment Certification, iGPS' platform is a major advance in supply chain hygiene—a platform that can easily be cleaned. It will not absorb fluids that can lead to contamination and never requires treatment with toxic pesticides or fungicides. Measuring a true 48" x 40", iGPS' platform enables larger load patterns and is ideally suited for automated environments. And it puts an end to broken boards and protruding nails that can damage equipment, endanger workers, jam production lines and litter workplaces. An independent life cycle analysis has documented that iGPS' solution is better for the environment than both one-way and multiuse wood pallets.
