Effective and Efficient

Analyzing the collected data, we mine for insights that provide operational efficiencies. With these insights, we anticipate and proactively respond to the ever-changing needs of our customers – to improve availability, reduce risk of unplanned service delays and manage maintenance in a smarter way.

Our service also empowers customers to further optimize their own supply chain through relevant, actionable data, which is shared via an online dashboard, with the ability to integrate with existing customer systems.

Exceptional Pallets

Axios’s pallets are equipped with advanced RFID tags, barcodes and additional sensoring capability options. 

Made of a proprietary compound, our pallets are exceptionally high performing. Their naturally beneficial properties make them unique in the industry:

  • Phytosanitary
  • Minimal moisture absorption
  • Free from mold and insect infestation
  • Naturally fire retardant
  • Very high strength­-to-­weight ratio
  • Nail free
Light, Strong and Durable

Axios pallets are 20 to 30 percent lighter than comparable wooden pallets, with the unmatched lifespan of 10 to 12 years.This is made possible through the innately high strength­-to­-weight ratio of the material, without the addition of metal reinforcements.

The fuel savings resulting from their light weight makes our pallets uniquely eligible for Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) carbon credits.

Auditors known as validation/verification bodies (VVBs) are tasked with validating project descriptions and verifying actual emission reductions. All projects under the VCS Program must be independently audited to ensure compliance with rigorous VCS requirements for environmental integrity.

Additionally, Axios pallets are ideal for precision handling logistics equipment and systems that require high rigidity under load and stability in a wide range of operational temperatures.

Rapidly Scalable

Axios pallets are produced using a proprietary manufacturing process that requires less equipment, labor, time and capital investment.  Axios is first to market with an alternative pooled/rental pallet featuring production scalability and cost comparable to that of traditional wooden pallets.

Traceable and Certified Safety

Axios is the first in the industry to receive Provision of Sanitation and Hygiene Services certification from the Safe Quality Food (SQF) Institute.

  1. All pallets are shipped to an Axios sanitization facility after manufactured.
  2. Sanitized pallets are shipped on Axios trucks to the producers.
  3. Producers ship on sanitized pallets to the distributors/retailers.
  4. Pallets are retrieved after each use and shipped to an Axios sanitization facility for washing before their next deployment.

We take food safety seriously. Our pallets are made from FDA­ compliant compound (phytosanitary without moisture absorption, mold and insect infestation), making them suitable for pharmaceutical and food & beverage industries.

We wash and sanitize our pallets after each use ­ without reducing durability unlike competitors using other types of pallets. We have taken further steps to sanitize our entire asset delivery chain, including facilities, trucks, trailers and more.

We proactively monitor and prevent contamination, and have procedures in place to quickly minimize the impact of any unforeseen contamination.

Products and facilities with certification from the SQF Institute, acknowledged by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), are globally recognized by retailers, suppliers and foodservice providers for adhering to proven methods that reduce the chance of unsafe food reaching the marketplace.

In the event of a product recall our track and trace capabilities allow for a more rapid response.
