The new packaging was meant to replace the previously used wooden carriers that turned to costly waste after reaching the stores. With a reusable pallet box in custom size, one of the largest manufacturers of furniture components in France transports prefabricated furniture parts between central warehouse and stores.
The customer was largely able to transport all dimensions of kitchen furniture parts with an industrial container from the MegaPack range in a standard size of 1,500 x 1,200 mm. Three different levels of support rings helped to cover small, medium, and large containers and customised consignments.
The advantages in the supply chain: in the central warehouse, the furniture parts are simply picked and packed onto the pallet and the available space is optimally utilised without any walls getting in the way of this process. Checking the consignment for completeness thus also becomes easier, mistakes are avoided.
The support ring is slipped over the full pallet. Due to the locking devices in the pallet and in the lid, strapping of the pallet box is not necessary. Overall, transport damage and incorrect deliveries are considerably reduced. In addition, the use of RFID labels permits the seamless tracking and tracing of the goods.
