Paylode and Down River® Form Strategic Partnership For Greater Protection and Cost Savings
(April 30, 2015) Stockton, CA – Down River and PendaForm’s Paylode Cargo Protection Division now offer a one-stop shop for cargo protection and load securement for transporting products via boxcar, containers, and trailers. Paylode’s reusable, HDPE bulkheads, void panels and separator boards, combined with Down River's corrugated dunnage products, airbags, strapping and friction mats, provide all levels of effective cargo protection under one roof. The partnership adds the benefits of convenience for customers, faster response times and provides a full range of options for nearly all types of unitized goods being shipped by rail, ocean, or road.
“With this partnership in place, customers can review all of their cargo protection options through one source. They now have the ability to weigh the cost advantages of long-term reusable solutions against traditional void fill solutions. This allows them to make the best decisions for their supply chain needs,” says Mike Beattie, Paylode Business Development Manager.
“Damaged product during transport is extremely costly to every party in the supply chain,” says David Christiansen, National Sales and Marketing Manager at Down River. “The combination of both reusable, heavy-duty spacers and panels along with innovative disposable dunnage options allows for unique solutions for nearly any shipping situation. In addition, Down River has six strategic regional support centers located in Chicago, Illinois; Hazelton, Pennsylvania; Macon, Georgia; Woodland, Washington; Stockton, California and Nashville, Tennessee.” The support centers are in place to provide close proximity to most shippers, creative consultations and cost effective solutions to customers throughout the U.S.
