A REVOLUTION IN PRODUCT SAFETY.

Is it possible to ensure that strawberries picked on a farm in California and sold in a supermarket in Maine were never exposed to extreme temperatures during transport? The answer is yes. And the product that can ensure this is the pallet. Reinvented, constructed in an entirely new way, and equipped with GARD’s Smart Tag RFID technology, the pallet can provide safety, hygiene, and trackability. Lightning Technologies and GARD have created the PalletChain™ – connected to the Internet of Things, monitoring the cold chain, and continuously protecting your supply chain.

GARD, THE WORLD’S SMARTEST PALLET™

Global Asset Rental and Deployment (“GARD”) was founded by CEO Rex Lowe, a pioneer in the US pallet pooling market, to create The World’s Smartest Pallet™. For this purpose, GARD partnered with Lightning Technologies to engineer an innovative hybrid composite pallet for a lighter, more durable design that can match the expectations of changing, more demanding customer requirements.

The best engineered pallet in the industry is also “The World’s Smartest Pallet™”. In addition to advances in pallet design, proprietary coating, and manufacturing processes as developed by Lightning Technologies, each GARD pallet comes equipped with GARD’s state of the art Smart Tag track-and-trace technology.

Adding The World’s Smartest Pallet™ to GARD’s world class logistics and pallet pooling experience, and you have the best value solution offering the lowest system cost for the greatest combination of attributes.

Culture of Innovation

The One Thing That Changes Everything™

Exobond™ is our proprietary hybrid polyurea spray coating that dries instantly. It’s the one thing that changes everything™.

Track and Trace

Smart Sensing

Every one of the GARD pallets are embedded with active RFID technology. For food, pharmaceuticals, and popular consumer electronics, the ability to track, trace, and monitor temperature is invaluable.

Food Safety

Food Safety Modernization Act

This act, initiated and monitored by the FDA, has had a significant impact on the food supply chain. It puts necessary safety controls in place, while requiring increased record keeping by providers. With GARD’s Smart Tag RFID technology, the record keeping can be paperless, providing an automated, traceable road map all the way through the supply chain. In addition, the hermetically sealed coating on our pallets resists mold and bacteria, a further goal of the safety act.
