Axios Mobile Assets has signed a letter of intent to supply its green logistics solution to J.D. Smith and Sons for use in its integrated, asset based, third-party warehousing and transportation solutions.
Under a supply arrangement, Axios will provide their bio-resin pallets equipped with the Axios proprietary software and RFID tags for use in several J.D. Smith and Sons’ customer specific supply chain solutions.
The Axios composite pallets are engineered from a recyclable soy-based resin and each contain RFID tags for tracking capabilities, which can also assist in calculating carbon emissions to determine the environmental impact of distribution.
J.D. Smith and Sons hopes to gain greater operational efficiencies with the Axios platform, including improved payloads due to reduced pallet weight. They will also be able to offer customers additional services through the pallets RFID shipment tracking capabilities.
