New Attached Lid Container for Automated Systems

Schoeller Allibert Designs ALCs for Automated Systems

ALC for automated handling




Schoeller Allibert has launched a new-to-market attached lid container (ALC) specially developed for use with automated order preparation and distribution systems. The company, the UK’s largest manufacturer of plastic containers and reusable transit packaging (RTP), states that the ALCs are intended for use with the automated storage and retrieval systems. Such automation has become increasingly widespread as many operations, notably online retailers with immense stock lines, seek to achieve faster order preparation.

“With the use of sophisticated automated handling systems now increasingly common in warehouses, there is a clear need for packaging that can operate smoothly with such technology to create a fully integrated system,” states Danilo Oliynik, Managing Director UK & Eire, says.  “As a result, our new ALCs cater to industry demands, creating a positive impact on established supply chains, as well as potential new business for our clients.”

Every ALC is designed to fit the precise dimensions dictated by an automated system, providing bumpers on the sides to prevent containers piling up and jamming on conveyors – promising a smoother running of operations. Other features include a reinforced base, light weight and comfortable hand-holds.

The new Schoeller Allibert ALCs feature an integral hinged lid with tamper-evident seals that are fundamental to increased security by deterring theft of high-risk or high-value goods, offering protection to the internal goods whilst in transit. Each ALC has loop label attachment points as well as the option to have a logo and a message printed on the side, meaning the totes are extremely safe and easily distinguishable.
