Frequently Asked Questions about ZIP
What is the ZIP system?
ZIP is a request for proposal/quote/information service offered by the publisher of Pallet Enterprise
and TimberLine magazines. It helps connect buyers and sellers of forest products
equipment, machinery and services. It replaces the Reader Service card system that was
offered in the print edition of Pallet Enterprise. ZIP quickly and efficiently
helps users research their next big purchase. Try it today - it's FREE.
Is the ZIP service really for free? What's the catch?
Yes, the ZIP service is free for anyone looking to query/research suppliers. This includes
logging, sawmill, pallet and wood processing companies wanting to identify, research
and contact industry suppliers. Existing Pallet Enterprise and/or TimberLine display
advertisers are eligible to be listed as suppliers in the service for free. All others
must purchase an online promotion package, which includes placement in the ZIP system.
If you would like to appear in the ZIP system, call your sales representative toll free
at 800/805-0263 to get started. There's no catch.
Is it hard to create a RFP?
No, just answer the questions on a simple form. Don't have time to complete it in one sitting?
Save it as a draft and finish it later.
Are my RFPs saved after being sent?
Yes. The ZIP system is designed to be as user friendly and efficient as possible. All of
your RFPs are kept until you delete them. You can even update an old RFP and send it
out again. You only need to enter your contact information once - when you register;
after that just update it as needed to keep the information current.
