In early March Plasgad will join approximately 900 exhibitors at the Modex exhibition in Atlanta, where it will present its advanced packaging, storage and transport solutions. Visitors to the Plasgad booth (Packaging & Logistics Hall, Booth 6076) will be able to experience first-hand the company’s range of innovative solutions, as well as receive expert guidance from the Plasgad team.
The new Plasgad distribution pallet is a powerful new series that offers outstanding nesting capability and high durability for hundreds of rounds. Development of the distribution pallet series was born out of the need to answer market demands for durability, multi-functionality and cost effectiveness. The distribution pallet proved to be the ideal solution.
Distribution pallets come in 1200X800 mm/47.24X31.49 in (EURO size) and 1200X1000 mm/47.24X39.37 in (ISO size) and offered in a variety of versions. Enhanced nesting capabilities carry a significant space savings advantage and following the final stage of goods distribution they stand nested and stored for next rounds.
These strong and durable pallets have demonstrated high cost-effectiveness as compared with alternative solutions found in the market today.
Iftah Poran, VP R&D describes the development process subsequent unique capabilities of the distribution pallets: "The creation of a series of distribution pallets presented an interesting challenge for the Development Department. We wanted to develop a smart and advanced product that could cater to all stages of the process. The pallets come with three safety rims options, one of which is specially designed for plastic crates. We wanted to put emphasis on a key customer pain point which is the sliding of goods. In order to avoid such situations, we deliver three levels of non-slip surface: Firstly, are integral dots on the pallet to prevent slipping. Another level offers the possibility to add rubber anti-slip gems that support goods and prevent slipping on the forklift. The third level offers anti-slip strips along the pallet.
In order to optimize customer control processes, pallets tracking can be performed in several ways: Adding a bar code label, a QR Code and a dedicated space for an RFID Adhesive label. In addition, as part of their production process customers can also add a serial number to each pallet for better fleet management. All these features contribute to securing fleet management as part of the distribution process. A final point which I consider to be a huge benefit and important to note is the pallet split leg design. This structure effectively prevents "holes" in the pallet and help to ensure maximum and quality support for goods."
Regarding pallet specifications, as mentioned pallets are available in 1200X800X150 mm/47.24X31.49X5.9 in, weighing only 8 kg/17.64 lb or 1200X1000X150mm/47.24X39.37X5.9 in and weighs 10 kg/22.05 lb. In both versions skids can be added. ISO pallets are also available with 5 or 6 skids, a new option that produces an entire spectrum of potential advantages from optimally storing merchandise to racking abilities.
The particularly strong distribution pallets can carry 3,000 kg/6613 lb in static mode and 1,000 kg/1204 lb in dynamic mode.
Pallets can be easily cleaned and are hygienically safe with no fear of pest infiltration, more than satisfying rigorous international regulations such as the World Food and Pharmaceutical Administration.
The distribution pallets are reusable, environmentally friendly and fully recyclable at the end of the work cycle. Plasgad are proud of the positive impact of our solutions have on the environment and we are committed to sharing in the collective effort of raising sustainability awareness in our world.
