World­wide goods are stored and moved on pal­lets and pal­let is made of wood, nails and ed­i­ble paint. This en­ables bet­ter stor­age and trans­porta­tion of goods. For FMCG and Bev­er­age com­pa­nies the time taken for reach­ing the shelves of the shops, su­per mar­kets and hy­per mar­kets is a key con­cern with in­creas­ing com­pe­ti­tion among the play­ers. The shop keep­ers and su­per mar­kets keep the prod­ucts whose back-end lo­gis­tics man­age­ment is ef­fi­cient. In the di­min­ish­ing cus­tomer loy­alty sce­nario, the cus­tomer will buy the brands avail­able on the shelves, if FMCG player is not able to put their prod­ucts on the shelves of these shops on time, some­one who is ef­fi­cient will take their place and will eat in to their mar­ket share. So, the need for ef­fi­cient stor­age has in­creased, which brings in lots of ef­fi­ciency in trans­port. Once the goods are stored on pal­lets mov­ing them be­comes easy and fact by fork lifts. World­wide pal­let in and pal­let out con­cept has reached to last mile of the cus­tomer. The same pal­let moves from man­u­fac­turer of the goods to whole­saler, from there to re­tailer and to the cus­tomers. Re­duc­ing labour Based on the con­cept of pal­leti­sa­tion, LEAP In­dia is amongst the seven com­pa­nies in the world that pro­vides equip­ment pool­ing and re­turn­able pack­ages, ef­fi­ciently re­duc­ing the num­ber of labour re­quire­ments and time. Pal­letis­ing prod­ucts in­creases op­er­a­tional ef­fi­ciency, on-time de­liv­ery hence, re­sult­ing more vis­i­bil­ity on the shelf be­fore cus­tomers. More­over, it helps com­pa­nies re­duc­ing car­bon foot­print by leas­ing the pal­lets hence en­sur­ing the faster pro­lif­er­a­tion of pal­lets across In­dia’s ware­houses.
