Sunny Delight Signs Agreement With iGPS

Juice-based drink producer begins shipping its products throughout the U.S. on all-plastic pallets with embedded RFID tags.

Orlando, FL: Intelligent Global Pooling Systems (iGPS Co. LLC) announced that Sunny Delight Beverages Co. will begin shipping its products throughout the U.S. on iGPS’ all-plastic pallets with embedded RFID tags, commencing immediately. Sunny Delight produces and markets such brands as SunnyD.

“At Sunny Delight, we regard sustainability as a strategic imperative, and iGPS’ all-plastic pallets will further help us to meet our objective for continual sustainability improvements,” says Ellen Iobst, senior vice president of manufacturing and technology. “The lighter weight of iGPS’ pallet reduces fuel use and greenhouse gas emissions.”

“Sunny Delight is a great success story and we’re excited to begin working together,” says Bob Moore, chairman and CEO of iGPS. “As two companies committed to environmental responsibility, I’m confident that this will be a great partnership.”

In just three years of operation, iGPS has revolutionized the way goods are being shipped throughout the North American supply chain. Its 100 percent recyclable pallets are 30 percent lighter than pallets made of wood and are vastly better for the environment.

Unlike wood pallets, iGPS pallets do not absorb liquids that can cross-contaminate food and they cannot harbor wood-boring insects, which have seriously damaged North American forests.
