Innovative pallet provider RM2 USA will be showcasing their newest generation of BLOCKPal™ pallets at this year’s Pack Expo International and Pharma Expo in Chicago, IL from Nov. 6 – 9, 2016. RM2 will be located in the East Hall booth 6785 within the Reusable Packaging Association Pavilion.
The Generation 3 (Gen 3) BLOCKPal has been manufactured with RM2ELIoT integrated into the pallet’s design. RM2ELIoT utilizes the Internet of Things to accurately identify its location increasing pallet and supply chain security.
“The strength, durability and repairability of the Gen 3 BLOCKPal translate into well over a hundred pallet trips. These characteristics combined with the RM2ELIoT track and trace system optimizes the BLOCKPal’s ability to perform to its fullest potential,” said David Kalan, RM2 VP of marketing & business development. “RM2ELIoT connects the Gen 3 BLOCKPal to the Internet of Things, providing pallet data that has never been offered before, making the RM2 BLOCKPal the pallet solution for the new age of the Internet of Things.”
The Gen 3 channels are completely sealed, eliminating the risk of insect or bacterial contamination, making it ideal for the pharmaceutical or food industry. In addition, the Gen3 BLOCKPal has an increased coefficient of friction over traditional pallets.
All Pack Expo attendees are invited to RM2’s Learning Center Session on “How Reusable Packaging Connects to the Internet of Things”. The session will be on Nov. 8 from 12:00 pm – 12:45 pm Central Standard Time held on the Reusable Packaging Association Stage located in the East Hall.
