New Produce Pallet from Polymer Logistics delivers benefits and cost savings across the supply chain

Targeted to be a real alternative to wood, Polymer Logistics have engineered the new pallet to deliver not only flexibility in load carrying and space saving but also cost savings in the supply chain.

Manufactured from high-density polyethylene (HDPE), which is well known for its large strength to density ratio, the Produce Pallet is tough enough to cope with the rigours of the supply chain such as mishandling. As it is manufactured from HDPE, the Produce Pallet is washable thus making it more hygienic than the wood alternative and is also suitable for use across a variety of other industries including the pharmaceutical industry.

Available in 1200x1000x162, the Produce Pallet really comes into its own when it comes to nesting capabilities. Essentially the produce pallets fit inside each other thus they are nestable. This means that more can be stacked in one space compared to the wood equivalent, which sit upon each other rather than in. This is vital in today’s backroom space limited retail environments.

When it comes to the return of empty produce pallets the nestable feature again has a significant benefit. As retailers seek to reduce transport costs due to the price of fuel, it’s essential that the space inside the lorry be optimised. In reality the more that can be accommodated on one load the lower the fuel costs. It’s possible to accommodate up to 3 times more produce pallets on one lorry compared to the wood alternative. This delivers that much needed saving in fuel costs.

The new pallet deck features marked moulded locations with recessed grooves for Maxinest produce crates. This helps with the stability of the load when stacked, thus reducing damages and spoilt costs! What’s more the new pallet is half the weight of the wood equivalent thus enabling just one person to lift. This helps with reducing work related injuries.

New Market Place crate from Polymer Logistics is set to transform fresh produce aisles

Under pinning its commitment to innovation within the field of retail ready packaging Polymer Logistics has launched the world’s first Market Place crate. Perfect for stores who want to give that market fresh impression, the new wood effect crate is set to revolutionise the look and feel of fresh produce aisles nationwide.

As more and more retailers are either starting to or are actually upgrading their stores, one area that has been of particular focus has been the fresh produce aisle. Retailers are recognising the fact that the perception of fresh and local can lead to increased sales. Therefore store design and layout has been adapted to reflect this.  However whilst there can be no doubt that improvements have been made, the actual crates that hold and display the produce are still look very generic and sterile.

The new Market Place crate from Polymer presents the opportunity for retailers to switch away from non-descript plastic crates and to actually influence buyer perception in terms of the market feel. What’s more for retailers who are actually using real wooden crates the new solution from PL is more sustainable and offers a significant advantage in terms of hygiene. Having made its debut at Fruit Logistica 2014 in Berlin, the new Market Place crate offers robust product protection during transportation and is both foldable and stackable to maximise truck and store space.  The crates use the active lock system that enables store colleagues to fold away the crates efficiently using the ergonomic system.

“If retailers truly want to offer their customers that market fresh look then they need to find an alternative to the generic plastic crate that is prevalent in every retail produce aisle,” stated Adrian Dale, Managing Director Polymer Logistics UK.  “Here at Polymer we believe that this represents a major breakthrough in terms of store enhancements and are confident that if retailers invest in the Market Place crate they will see a major uplift in sales”.
