Global Supply Chain
Palmetto Industries has multiple manufacturing plants located in India, China and Mexico. Not only are we the largest importer from India, but our experience is broader and deeper than all of our competitors. We have been importing FIBCs from countries around the world since 1994. Palmetto employs direct representatives in India and China that are responsible for all manufacturing operations across Asia.
In addition to having multiple manufacturing plants we also operate from multiple exit ports and multiple entry ports throughout the world. Design and logistics determine our sourcing.
Palmetto has developed and incorporated a web based inventory management program that allows customers to have immediate access to their orders status as well as inventory levels. Information is real time and continuously updated. We tailor inventory programs to suit our customers’ specific volume requirements.
Palmetto Industries has over 500,000 square feet of warehouse space available globally to store inventory, reduce lead times and facilitate distribution. We incorporate exclusive agreements with land and ocean freight companies to guarantee competitive and consistent deliveries. We have an excellent relationship with customs officials globally that assures facilitated container processing. Once containers are processed by customs, containers will either be routed to our customer or to one of our warehouses until required release.
Currently and at any given point in time, we have over 200,000 bags in the US. We maintain about 8-10% of the annual usage for most of our customers in our warehouses. The inventory bags are palletized and maintained in a clean environment. We also maintain over 50,000 bags at some of our customer’s sites on consignment. Most of our customers also maintain at least one month’s inventory.
Total Packaging Management
Palmetto offers a complete management program for all packaging items. This includes but is not limited to the complete supply of all packaging and all aspects of its procurement and distribution such as ordering, tracking, unloading, receiving, inventory management and on site inspection and evaluation.
Palmetto Industries is the leading Flexible Packaging company in driving down costs and increasing capacity in order to service our growing customers’ needs. We are globally increasing our vendor base and investing in capital equipment to continually increase capacity. Our ability to leverage high volume raw material purchase and extreme freight discounting has pushed us ahead of the competition and has paved the way for our long-term vision of becoming the largest FIBC supplier in the world.
