Orlando, Florida—iGPS Logistics and Nestle Waters North America (NWNA) have announced an agreement to introduce iGPS pallets as the shipping platform for Poland Spring brand natural spring water to customers throughout the North East.

The announcement aligns with the NWNA commitment to continuous improvement and to develop new efficiencies within their supply chain that can also be shared with their customers.

“Testing of the pallet and service has proven iGPS Logistics to be fully capable of supplying our business with a sustainable product,” stated George Sheats, strategic procurement manager supporting NWNA. “This improved pallet solution will reduce product damage and improve operational efficiencies. The lighter weight and superior construction reduces the chance of injury when handling the pallet.”

We thank the leadership at NWNA and their customers for making this decision become a reality and we look forward to a long term and mutually beneficial business relationship.”
