Cost Saving Benefits of Slip Sheets vs. Pallets
Fibre-Pul slip sheets from Marvatex Inc. reduce acquisition costs. Solid fiber slip sheets cost approximately $1.00 each depending on the size, thickness, and ordering quantity. A wooden pallet will cost between $6.00 and $12.00 each. Therefore, solid fiber slip sheets are six to twelve times less costly than wooden pallets.
If you load your trailers by hand (floor loading) the use of slip sheets will drastically reduce your labor costs by automating the loading function. It will take 3 men 6 hours to floor load a trailer. This is a total of 18 man hours. In comparison, it will take 1 man ½ hour to load a trailer using slip sheets. This is a savings of 17 ½ man hours per trailer.
Fibre-Pul slip sheets from Marvatex will reduce administrative costs. A slip sheet is disposable and serves the purpose of transporting one unitized load to its destination. This eliminates the headache of tracking your wooden pallets, arguing with customers over disappearing pallets, and paying to return and repair used pallets.
Fibre-Pul slip sheets from Marvatex are environmentally friendly. Slip sheets are manufactured from paperboard, a renewable resource. Slip sheets are fully recyclable through common wastepaper outlets and have a monetary wastepaper value. Slip sheets do not fill up landfills and meet export pallet platform restrictions.
