Protect goods in transit with plastic pallet collar
14 September 2015
Goplasticpallets.com’s plastic pallet collar provides significant benefits over traditional solutions for protecting goods in storage and transit.
Jim Hardisty, managing director of Goplasticpallets.com, said: "Historically stretch wrapping and pallet walls have been used to offer added protection to palletised goods to avoid damage and unauthorised access, but these solutions are only suitable for a limited range of applications and present several problems. Wrapping, for instance, ensures goods remain intact but offers zero security; and pallet walls, whilst they prevent goods being tampered with, they require tools to assemble and take apart making them more cumbersome to use.
"Our versatile plastic pallet collar offers superior protection over traditional options without the disadvantages, plus it comes with a number of additional benefits.”
Goplasticpallets.com’s pallet collar is quick to assemble and disassemble, offers users flexibility since they can be built up to the height required, and folds down flat easily when not in use saving valuable transport space on return journey trips.
It is available in two standard sizes – the PC 1208 Pallet Collar measuring 1200mm (L) x 800mm (W) x 330mm (H) and the PC 1210 Pallet Collar measuring 1200mm (L) x 1000mm (W) x 330mm (H).
Users can dictate the height of the box they wish to create, since the collar can be built up in increments of 330mm to accommodate any load required meaning less warehouse space is wasted. This stage by stage assembly also makes loading goods much easier and safer, since no leaning into a part empty box is required.
The same applies to shipping; no one wants to pay for empty spaces to be shipped. With Goplasticpallets.com’s pallet collar users can tightly pack goods to prevent contents shifting and limit wasted space, reducing shipping costs on outbound journeys.
As the plastic pallet collar is reusable, there is no packaging waste unlike with stretch wrapping which presents a costly hassle to remove and recycle. When not in use, Goplasticpallets.com’s pallet collar folds down flat which takes up minimal space in transit, considerably lowering the cost of return journey trips. A standard sized trailer can hold up to 832 pallet collars in total – 26 stacks, piled 32 high.
Goplasticpallets.com can personalise your pallet collars by screen printing your logo or company name. Lids are also available as an option for added security.
Jim added: "Currently our pallet collar is being used for a range of different applications since its versatility is limitless. One of our retail customers has switched from using a wooden frame system to using our pallet collar for shipping bathroom sets to limit damage and benefit from the product’s reusability. We also have a catering customer using our pallet collar for transporting glass milk bottles to prevent them getting smashed.”
