I am seeking someone who can take a list of questions on a word document, see attached doc. and put them in categories and in order using skill logic and piplng for an online survey using survey monkey or zommerang. I will set up the account depending on your experience and recommendation.
The purpose is to map from the purchase, to use, to recycle to disposal of pallets in the pallet industry. see www.palletindustrytransforms.com. to learn the behavior of pallet buyers, to learn if we build a pallet plant near them will they come to us, do business with us.

we also would like to find out if companies including pallet pooling and leasing companies would be willing to have long term contracts with our pallet production plants if we were to co locate our plants near to them and to design our pallets to their custom tailored needs.
there is a slow shift going on from wood to plastic pallets, we want to accelerate that shift and find our what's blocking more comapnies from shifting from wood to plastic, and to high end plastic pallets, NOT low end once off pallets. also attached is a one page layout of the trends now transforming the pallet industry.
we want to survey large and medium size companies that use pallets, industries that are leading the shift to plastic are automomotive, beverage, grocery, post offices, US and UK and Sweden, and pharmaceuticals.
also attached a mock up two page powerpoint showing the case to purchase and use plastic pallets, this will give you an idea of what the information we collect will be used for in our narrative report and powerpoint.

any knowledge of how to use social networks or other internet mechanisms to gather this research also most welcome.
