Based near Thirsk, North Yorkshire, Wagg Foods is a family owned company and is the UK’s largest independent supplier of quality dry dog food. It has more than 25 years experience manufacturing nutritious foods and treats for domestic pets and small animals, which are sold in leading supermarkets and independent retailers across the UK.
As keen advocates of the green agenda, the manufacturer sources ingredients locally and uses state-of-the-art production, handling processes and equipment to increase efficiency.
Looking at how it could reduce transport miles across its supply chain and overcome the effects of an unreliable pallet delivery service into its site, which caused ongoing problems in production areas, Wagg switched to IPP Logipal’s dependable yet flexible one-way trip pallet solution.
IPP Logipal’s pallets, which are perfectly suited to Wagg’s automated palletising processes, are used to deliver a range of pet food products to customers across the UK. The service also supports the company’s commercial activities in Europe. Overall well in excess of 100,000 pallets trips are made per annum.
Once utilised, pallet collections are arranged by IPP Logipal, with inspections then carried out against IPP Logipal’s strict quality criteria, ensuring Wagg Foods receives consistently high-quality pallets.
Manager at Wagg, Andy Carver, comments: “With our previous pallet supplier we were wasting time and labour costs on sorting out the damaged pallets from the ones we could use and chasing deliveries. After switching to IPP Logipal’s service we have found the quality of pallets is far superior and the one way trip system much easier to administer, making the operation much more efficient.
Carver added: “With high-quality pallets and an excellent support service, IPP Logipal simply do what they promise, which enables us to focus on our products and customers.”
