ORBIS Corporation has launched an all-plastic 1420mm x 1120mm Beverage Pallet for the Asian beverage industry. The new pallet is designed for optimum conveyance of a wide variety of plastic and metal containers used in beverage production.
As the Asian carbonated soft drinks market continues to grow, there is a rising demand for pallets that accommodate the overall supply chain concerns—from truck space to cleanliness. ORBIS’ 1420mm x 1120mm Beverage Pallet is a lightweight, durable and impact resistant pallet that is dimensionally consistent and compatible with many palletizers, depalletizers, automatic strapping/banding systems and conveyers, as well as existing pallet solutions in that market.
“We are excited to offer this pallet as a solution to our customers in the Asian beverage industry who desire the very best when they’re looking for a highly hygienic and durable pallet to ensure food safety,” says Chris Shepard, product manager – Beverage Pallets.
The 1420mm x 1120mm Beverage Pallet is injection foam molded in high-density polyethylene or polypropylene plastic. Its flow-through rib design offers exceptional cleanability and is compatible with a variety of pallet-washing systems. Featuring a 12-block design, larger wall sections and double wall, it achieves significantly higher impact resistance to reduce the risk of pallet damage, especially from fork tines.
When combined with ORBIS divider sheets and top frames, the 1420mm x 1120mm Beverage Pallet provides maximum product protection and load stability for unitized loads, creating a more efficient shipping system for companies serving in the Asian soft drink sector. The full 1420mm x 1120mm system of plastic pallets, frames and divider sheets are 100 percent recyclable at the end of their service life.

- Improved pallet integrity, field repairable if necessary
- Chambered base runners for improved hand truck access
- Full fork truck and hand truck access, with open pallet base
- Easier tracking with configured RFID tags and bar codes
- Greater load stability, with anti-slip deck grommets
