Shallow distribution crate

18 July 2012

The transportation of fresh produce through the logistics supply chain within retailers is crucial to the existence and survival of any supermarket, so the arrival of fresh produce in perfect condition direct to the shelves is paramount

Mailbox has added a new crate to its range after successful discussions with retailers and logistics providers. The new deep nesting ‘shallow’ crate is 600 x 400 x 167mm which allows packers to maximise the content fill and logistics providers to save space during transportation.

The new M767 follows the popular design of the already very successful M725 and M740 crates manufactured by Mailbox. Standard features include card holders, stippled areas for labels, four print areas for company names and logos and the highly acclaimed textured external surface that allows misplaced labels to be removed more easily than its competitors. Positive stacking on the stacking rods ensures safe loads in storage or transportation whilst a 71% nesting ratio saves valuable space during storage or shipping when not in use.

‘This is a great addition to our range’ commented Steve McKenna – Product Development Director. ‘We can now offer our customers a better choice and more economical solutions. The M767 is a popular crate that can be used from packers and suppliers direct to supermarket stores for immediate merchandising’.

Mailbox has been manufacturing retail logistics crates since 1998 and is an established and respected partner/supplier to retailers and logistics providers. The M767 is now available ex stock in a choice of colours.
