ORLANDO, Fla. – August 10, 2011 – Intelligent Global Pooling Systems (iGPS Company, LLC), operator of the world’s first pallet rental service to provide lightweight, 100 percent recyclable plastic pallets with embedded radio frequency identification (RFID) tags, has been named as one of the top 100 companies for working families in Central Florida. The list, compiled by the Orlando Sentinel, recognizes companies in the region who realize that workers are the foundation of their organization and create flexible programs to enhance their workers’ quality of life.
“We’re deeply honored to be recognized for our commitment to our workforce,’ said Lewis Taffer, Chief Marketing Officer of iGPS. “iGPS realizes that taking care of our employees and their families is the best way we can take care of our business. We need happy, committed and productive workers and have worked hard to create programs to facilitate a positive lifestyle for our associates.”
The Sentinel’s list was developed to applaud companies who, realizing that workers are the foundation of their business and the key to growth, create programs to make that foundation stronger. This is done by developing flexible benefits and fostering a corporate culture of caring.
iGPS operates the world’s first pallet rental service providing shippers and receivers with lightweight, 100 percent recyclable all-plastic pallets with embedded RFID tags. Its highly engineered platform—the world’s most advanced shipping pallet—is rapidly replacing wood as the platform of choice among the world’s most innovative companies. Businesses that switch from wood pallets to iGPS realize game-changing savings—as much as $2 per unitized load—thanks to lower transport costs, reduced production downtime, reduced product damage and fewer rejected loads. The iGPS pallet is also a major advance in supply chain hygiene—a platform that is easily cleaned, will not absorb fluids that can lead to contamination and never requires treatment with toxic pesticides and fungicides. An independent life cycle analysis has documented that iGPS’ solution is dramatically better for the environment than both one-way and multiuse wood pallets. Launched in March 2006, the company has created nearly 2,000 new green jobs in the U.S. and is led by pallet and supply chain veterans with decades of experience. iGPS (www.igps.net) is headquartered in Orlando, FL and operates its state-of-the-art National Sales and Innovation Center in Northwest Arkansas.
