Intelligent Global Pooling Systems (iGPS), operator of the world’s first pallet rental service providing all-plastic pallets with embedded radio frequency identification (RFID) tags, hosted customers, supply chain professionals and community leaders at the opening of its new National Sales and Innovation Center in Northwest Arkansas.
 
Following a ribbon-cutting by Bentonville Mayor Bob McCaslin, iGPS’ 8,000-square- foot National Sales and Innovation Center was opened for guests to tour and learn through interactive exhibits and an automated warehouse environment how iGPS represents a quantum leap in pallet rental. More than 20 interactive displays provided detailed information on iGPS’ all-plastic pallet with embedded RFID tags, as well as the ancillary services and technologies that comprise iGPS’ complete solution.  iGPS’ business partners and their contributions to the company’s offering are key elements of the display. Participating partners include: Alien Technology, Belacon, Egemin Automation, Enfora, EPC Solutions, Motorola, Ryder System and Schoeller Arca Systems.

“By opening our new National Sales and Innovation Center, we are demonstrating our commitment to remaining at the forefront of supply chain technology,” said Bob Moore, iGPS chairman and CEO.  “Each of our partners is a world-class provider and, together, we offer the marketplace a paradigm shift in pallet rental by delivering the world’s most advanced pallet together with leading-edge technology backed by 24/7 customer support.  Our new Center showcases these innovations in a purpose-built facility, and the response has exceeded our expectations,” Moore added.

To complement the displahys and exhibits at its Center, iGPS launched a new feature on its web site that displays a running total of cost savings its customers have realized with iGPS’ plastic pallets with embedded RFID tags.  “iGPS customers have saved nearly $68 million in operational costs, and the number is growing by the minute,” Moore continued.  “Not only does our technology help customers improve their bottom line, but our shipping solution is more hygienic and environmentally responsible, as documented in the Sales and Innovation Center.” In addition, Moore said that over the course of five years, iGPS customers have cumulatively prevented the destruction of over 600,000 trees, saved 635,000 gallons of fuel and averted nearly 14 million pounds of greenhouse gas emissions.
