A typical situation with an automotive supplier: due to modifications and extensions of working processes, the way a whole variety of transport packaging was handled had slowly evolved through the years. Various materials, different dimensions, and dubious packaging quality had an increasingly negative impact on the company’s work flow.
Since the new reusable packaging was to be employed with different suppliers, the transport of VDA KLT and of large parts on a single base pallet had to be achieved.
The pallet is reinforced and therefore very stiff. The 4-foot pallet measures 1225 x 825 mm and carries up to 500 kg in high-bay warehouses, with a dynamic load of 1,000 kg. It is only slightly oversized and thus unproblematic during transports, allowing to stack VDA KLT containers which are employed in all applications of the automotive industry.
In addition, a support ring made of sturdy polypropylene twin-wall sheet can be placed in the edge of the pallet for goods that are not packaged in KLT. The result is a MegaPack transport container such as for fuel tanks, cable sets, rubber and plastic parts, or steerings.
During shipping, two MegaPacks can be stacked on top of one another, thus filling the internal height of a truck completely.
