I haven't sweeped back any empty wood pallets for several weeks . So much freight is going from truck to straight to steel or containers. Pallets of freight stretching from one end of the stockroom to the other end. Fulfillment needing so many every day. We even using FDC pallets instead of sending them back. I was scouring the store today just trying to find one pallet so I could make a bale.

Your store can request a stack of pallets be sent by the DC if its really that bad.

Do you give whoever picks up your SFS the pallets? Our store loads everything onto plastic skids and then just offloads those onto whatever truck picks up in the afternoon (not sure what kind of truck UPS sends, their normal delivery truck or a trailer) Then when we have a drop trailer during fourth quarter we do the same thing.

But I know some stores just give UPS/FedEx wrapped pallets so they have to use the crappy wood ones. But since we use the plastic ones that get offloaded we don't really have an issue with skids.

They made us get rid of our plastic pallets, so now we have to keep FDC ones and use them for normal freight.
