The new ORBIS P3 pallet offers a durable, hygienic, lightweight, and stackable solution that integrates with manual and automated handling equipment.
OCONOMOWOC, Wis. — JULY 6, 2022 — ORBIS® Corporation, an international leader in reusable packaging, adds the new P3 pallet to its suite of reusable plastic pallet offerings to improve sustainable handling in primary packaging, food and beverage, and CPG applications. The 40-inch-by-48-inch P3 pallet is a durable, lightweight, stackable hygienic packaging solution that integrates seamlessly with manual and automatic material handling equipment.
At 30 pounds, the ORBIS P3 pallet is designed with a low-profile 5.1” height. The P3 is easily double-stacked in racking systems and maximizes truckload space. Optional steel reinforcements and grommets provide strength and improved stability to reduce load shifting and product damage. Comfortable handholds allow for easy manual handling, and the plastic flow-through design reduces contaminant spaces and allows for easy cleaning. Plus, with a longer lifespan than wood, the P3 pallet provides unmatched sustainable advantages.
ORBIS P3 pallet features a low profile and molded-in deck pads
“With sustainability and reliability at the center of our business, the new P3 pallet is designed to maximize durability and performance,” said Alison Zitzke, senior product manager at ORBIS Corporation. “The unique features of the P3 pallet include molded-in deck pads that support multiple box layout configurations to protect corners, and a low-profile height optimized for double stacking in racks. With sustainability a top-of-mind priority, these features help companies deliver on their environmental commitments while ensuring supply chain efficiency and product protection.”
Benefits also come in the form of operational efficiency and convenience, with a four-way forklift entry and a stringer bottom providing easy access to the pallet from any position and seamless integration with automated systems. Plus, the pallet’s molded-in deck pads support multiple box layout configurations, protecting box corners and ensuring the product is not damaged during transport.
Built with ORBIS’ dedication to sustainability in mind, the P3 pallet replaces wood pallets in the supply chain to reduce environmental waste while providing a durable and reliable solution for product transportation and storage. The P3 pallet can be fully recycled at the end of its useful life, making it eligible for the Recycle with ORBIS program, offering credit on recycled products for future packaging purchases. Additionally, the P3 pallet also can be manufactured with recycled plastic, adding to its sustainable advantages.
