Goplasticpallets.com and Goplasticboxes.com will be returning to IMHX 2016 at the NEC in Birmingham, from 13th to 16th September on stand 11N40 to showcase their unrivalled product portfolio, including the latest SF 800 H Retail Pallet and GoFold Twistlock Box range, as well as launch a brand new transport solution for the automotive and manufacturing industries.
Since Goplasticpallets.com was established over 15 years ago, the company has increased turnover, warehouse and stock capabilities by 100 per cent, with an ongoing expansion of sector-specific product ranges to meet customer needs. Moving forward, the company’s success will continue to flourish with ambitious expansion plans and by continuing to offer UK businesses the best in returnable and one trip packaging and pallets.
Introduced earlier this year, the SF 800 H Retail Pallet is the latest in specialist models to join Goplasticpallets.com’s extensive range of lightweight and cost-effective nestable pallets. The lightweight structure of the SF 800 H Retail Pallet measures 1,200mm (L) x 800mm (W) x 145mm (H) and weighs just 10.7kg. As it can be used for multiple tasks, from order picking to transferring stock to the shop floor, and is designed to withstand the rigours of a closed loop retail environment.
“In retail environments, nestable plastic pallets can prove a versatile, reliable workhorse. For a nestable pallet of this size, it is extremely robust and can bear loads of 2,000kg when static or 1,000kg on the move. Additionally, the uniquely designed kidney bean shaped feet of the SF 800 H Retail Pallet create much smaller non-geometric voids on the top deck, which improves secure stacking of smaller boxes and assists the smooth entry of materials handling equipment,” states Goplasticpallet.com’s Jim Hardisty.
In May, Goplasticboxes.com launched the distinctive GoFold Twistlock Box range of foldable plastic boxes designed specifically for large volume retailers, grocers and growers. The unique Twistlock feature release mechanism appeals to users since the boxes can be collapsed on the shop floor with maximum speed and minimal noise pollution. Measuring 600mm (L) x 400mm (W), the new Twistlock foldable boxes suit specific load requirements, as they are available in three different heights, from 118mm (H) at 23.6 litre capacity up to 229mm (H) at 46.8 litre capacity.
Hardisty comments: “The GoFold Twistlock boxes are proving very popular with some of Europe’s fastest growing budget supermarkets since can they fold down to a height of just 28mm, with the benefits of saving considerable space, reducing fuel costs and improving carbon footprint. In addition, these boxes have been thoroughly tested for repeated use, making them suitable for rapid order picking, secure stacking and use in automated handling systems.”
Due to the strong partnerships that Goplasticpallets.com and Goplasticboxes.com have with leading international manufacturers of logistics and warehousing solutions, the company states that Hardisty and his team can offer an even greater range of exceptional quality products. Furthermore, thanks to Goplasticpallets.com and Goplasticboxes.com sales team’s excellent customer service and solution finding approach, many businesses are improving operational and logistics methods, whilse enjoying the major cost savings made possible by using plastic pallets and boxes.
