As an industry-leading packaging provider specializing in innovative food-industry solutions, Econo-Pak is also proud to offer comprehensive shipping and receiving services. With around-the-clock service and a facility outfitted with state-of-the-art equipment for speedy, efficient processing, we can handle all kinds of shipping needs — no matter how last-minute or complex.
Features and Benefits
No time is wasted at Econo-Pak; over 700 skilled employees work in our two locations, running three shifts every day, and our shipping and receiving department is no different. Our team is available 24 hours a day for quick, reliable turnarounds, last-minute requests, and as-needed support.
Scheduled Live Loads
Scheduled live loads allow us to make timely inventory management decisions while optimizing overall facility efficiency.
Our LTL (less than truckload) carrier options provide cost savings for companies with small freights. Most LTL shipments allow for a company to pay for only part of a truck, and often they can even split the remaining space with another company’s shipment for added efficiency in delivery speed, eco-friendliness, and overall costs.
We work with high-quality, high-value CHEP pallets for optimal reliability. These durable, reusable pallets can accommodate a range of products and shipping needs, allowing us to keep our supply chain moving quickly and efficiently.
Our team also uses a range of well-crafted Brown Enterprise Pallets stringer pallets, including their recycled and remanufactured models.
Drop and Hook Trailer Program
Our drop and hook services enhance traditional drop trailer programs by adding an extra step to the cycle: We create a trailer pool at both shipping and receiving points, so a driver arrives with an empty trailer. That driver will then pick up an already loaded trailer and leave the empty one to be reloaded for its next delivery.
This minimizes wait time for both shippers and carriers, and allows our shipping services to run with minimal delays and maximum overall efficiency.
Parking for 150 Trailers
Our 240,000-square-foot manufacturing facility also hosts parking for 150 trailers, accommodating our busy shipping schedule as well as the drop and hook trailer program.
We make use of lightweight commercial slipsheets to help us package and ship products as economically and efficiently as possible. Reducing shipping costs and allowing for easily reusing and recycling, these slipsheets can transport up to 30% more products than wooden pallets can.
We also provide container unloading and comprehensive trailer inspection services.
