What is a sleeve pack?
A sleeve pack, also known as a pallet pack, is a lightweight unit load shipping system utilized to support, store, protect, transport and merchandise unit loads of goods or materials. The sleeve pack includes a pallet base, a top lid, as well as a foldable or two piece sleeve. The pallet and top lid are normally manufactured from plastic. The sleeve can be either corrugated cardboard or plastic, in various thicknesses, depending upon the demands of the application and the potential for retrieval and reuse.
The reusable sleeve pack compares favorably in price per trip compared to limited duty corrugated gaylords, as well as to more expensive rigid intermediate bulk containers (IBCs) for appropriate applications. They also can be used in place of plastic wrap or straps to provide load containment for palletized items. Plastic sleeves are not susceptible to water damage, and sleeve pack systems lend themselves to stable stacking, to help optimize storage and transport utilization. Light pack component weight and other features such as access doors enhance worker safety in working with them. Additionally, sleeves can be decorated to generate point-of-sale interest. When empty, sleeve pack systems are collapsed, providing a very attractive empty container return ratio to help reduce transportation costs.
