As Europe’s largest independent stockist of plastic containers and reusable transit packaging (RTP), Alison Handling- which will be displaying its products on the group PPS stand (8A28), has supplied a wide range of products including 180° Stack Nest Containers to assist companies to speed up handling operations, improve storage efficiencies, reduce logistics costs and eliminate packaging waste.
The 600x400 footprint 180° stack nest containers are moulded in food grade polypropylene and are available in both solid and perforated versions in three depths that all interwork together. All the containers have moulded in hand holes for easy handling are stocked in a range of colours making them visually distinguishable to segregate areas, products or processes.
The ‘stack & nest’ principle drastically reduces the space taken up by empty containers. In use, full boxes are both easy and very stable to stack, due to their load-bearing construction. When empty the boxes can be rotated 180° horizontally and nested inside each other – saving up to 73% instore or on return transport dependent on the depth of the container. This makes the containers both ideal for internal transportation and as a multiple-use bin for transporting outside the company.
This reusable transit packaging (RTP) complements automatic handling systems and has enormous advantages plus cost savings in comparison to alternative packaging and is fully recyclable at end of life.
Alison 180° stack nest boxes are frequently used in the food processing and packaging sectors, but the versatility and efficiencies to accelerate supply chain loops makes this product applicable throughout industry sectors.
