Aramco China’s chemicals business recently introduced a pallet pooling system to improve supply chain efficiency and achieve sustainable business practice. This smart solution is applied to support the polymer products manufactured by Fujian Refining & Petrochemical Company (FREP), Aramco’s joint venture with Fujian Petrochemical Company and ExxonMobil, in Quanzhou.
The recyclable pallet, made from high density polyethylene, enjoys a lot of advantages over the traditional wooden or injection-molded versions, specifically the longer life cycle, better durability and easy to clean. Through sharing and reusing, this pooling technique brings less environmental impact, reduces carbon footprint and promotes sustainable business growth for Aramco and its clients.
Nasser Lasloum, Xiamen branch manager and chemicals director, commented, “We have always been attaching great importance to expectations from our customers and the community where our operation is based. The pallet sharing solution we have adopted will greatly improve our logistic efficiency, reduce operational costs and make our operations more environmentally friendly. Meanwhile, the wide use of the smart pallets can also automate the process of product tracking and simplify inventory management.”
