We all know about the problems with the “Düsseldorf wooden pallets”:
too dirty, too warped, too expensive – if you take into account all logistics costs.
WALTHER has designed an intelligent and durable alternative to the wooden Düsseldorf pallet: the Düsseldorf plastic pallet. Developed for a large discount chain, it sets new standards in transport and intralogistics. The load carrier is easy to repair thanks to exchangeable runners, has an excellent life cycle assessment and is suitable for double-deck transport. The integrated RFID chip transmits the pallet's location data in real time.
With a low empty weight of 6.5 kg, the Düsseldorf plastic pallet transports static loads of up to 1,000 kg and dynamic loads of up to 500 kg. A special floor profile of the runners allows double-deck transport, for example of fruit and vegetable folding boxes. The load carrier is compatible with all common conveyor systems and thus ensures easy transportation at all stages of the material flow chain. Repair is easy thanks to exchangeable runners: even if they are improperly handled, the replacement solution ensures the long service life of the load carrier. The design of the economical and environmentally friendly alternative to wooden pallets with Düsseldorf dimensions (800 x 600 mm) allows it to be completely recycled.
Features we have always missed in wooden pallets, such as safe stacking of empty containers, securing of containers stacked on the pallet deck, easy cleaning and minimal injury risk, are now available with the WALTHER retail pallet. Even double-deck transport with collapsible boxes is possible. WALTHER Faltsysteme ensures the traceability of the goods by means of the in-mould barcode label and the latest RFID technology. Warehouse staff and suppliers can track goods movements in real time and thus obtain a reliable location of the load carrier. This ensures smooth processes in the supply chain and minimizes the loss of pallets.
