Plastic pallet containers a roaring success

Plastic pallet containers a roaring success has had some weird and wonderful customer requests over the years, but none as diverse as ZSL (Zoological Society of London), who were after a durable plastic pallet container suitable for storing everything from giraffe feed to Christmas decorations.

Matching a customer with the most suitable plastic pallet or container for their application is a key strength of, so the team was delighted to rise to this challenge.

ZSL initially contacted five years ago, seeking a strong and durable plastic pallet container to replace its existing wooden pallets and dustbins, which had failed to stand the test of time. ZSL was primarily looking to use the containers for moving and storing browse, branches and leaves given to the herbivore animals at the Zoo – giraffes, monkeys, camels and llamas, to name a few. recommended its GoPalletBox 1210S 3R Blue – a 610L plastic pallet container with solid walls on three runners, which offers both the large volume storage required and excellent performance in rigorous handling scenarios.

To date, ZSL has ordered 40 of these plastic containers from, and five years on, they have proven a roaring success.

ZSL London Zoo Site Manager, Jamie Turner said, “The reusable plastic containers have supplied have helped ZSL teams operate more efficiently across our 36-acre site. They’re incredibly durable and effectively store our large browse ready for feeding time at the Zoo.”
