Prent, Janesville Wisconsin

Logistics & Shipping

When packages are ready for shipment, they’re labeled for traceability and bar coded for inventory control. Prent customers have a variety of shipping options to choose from—including just-in-time manufacturing, KanBan programs, VMI (Vendor Managed Inventory), and ship-to-stock convenience so parts can be placed directly in their inventory for immediate use.

In addition, Prent’s Returnable Container program can enhance product protection and improve freight efficiencies by eliminating corrugate, skids and related packing materials. Returnable Containers offer customers many advantages, including:

  • Ability to densify trucks to reduce shipping costs
  • Durable, clean packaging
  • Increased part protection
  • Warehouse optimization, since Containers are stackable without the need for racks
  • Closed loop packing, since Containers are easily collapsible for return shipment
