Goplasticpallets.com launches new container for eco-friendly, secure delivery

24 January 2013

Goplasticpallets.com has announced the addition of a new lightweight modular container to its range – a cost effective alternative to existing sleeve packs – which is easy to assemble, secure and offers customers the potential to reduce their carbon footprint.

Goplasticpallets.com, the UK’s leading independent supplier of plastic pallets and containers, now stocks the Modular Pak: a lightweight sleeve pack with three components – a nestable pallet base with secure catches, a plastic sleeve and a lid. When flat packed, the container takes up minimal space and the lid fits perfectly over the pallet, protecting the sleeve from dirt and water and promoting long term reuse.

Its low tare weight is up to 15kg less than comparable containers, making high volume distribution of goods such as lightweight packaging – for food, pharmaceuticals and automotive parts, for example – more economically and environmentally efficient. The space saving of its flat-pack design when empty means collection and redeployment is also made easier than with comparable boxes.

Jim Hardisty, Managing Director of Goplasticpallets.com, said: “In order for manufacturers and distributors to minimise the weight of their loads on every journey, therefore reducing their carbon footprint, they need to be given alternatives which don’t compromise their goods in any way. The Modular Pak offers improved environmentally friendly distribution with ease of handling and secure features.”

Available in 1200mmx1000mm, the Modular Pak has four simple slide catches to secure the plastic sealed sleeve to the pallet and two deep drop-down doors which have Velcro attached to keep them closed, but when open, provide easy access to goods. Special “grab” handles in the lid allow it to be easily and quickly lifted off. It’s also possible to stand one Modular Pak ontop of another – ideal for where storage space is limited. They have a low operation cost and are impact resistant, capable of carrying a 500kg dynamic load or 1000kg static load.

Popular for the transport of packaging, the introduction of this product to Goplasticpallets.com’s range brings potential efficiencies to manufacturers that need to deliver large quantities of their goods in the early stages of the supply chain.

The Modular Pak is available in the UK immediately from stock.
