Ceva unveils new returnable plastic containers

Ceva Logistics has launched a new range of returnable plastic containers (RPCs) through its materials handling arm in Australia, Ceva Pallecon.

The range has been designed for vegetable growers who needed easy to fold, safe and efficient fresh food packaging.

The RPCs are available on a flexible rental basis and are fully compatible with Australian Standard pallets. They are made from 100 per cent recyclable food grade polymer with smooth inner walls to maximise product protection and pack efficiency and ensure products are properly ventilated.

Andrew Closters, a baby leaf farmer from Baccus Marsh in Victoria, said: “The lightweight design combined with its fold-down ability provides many benefits. This includes a cross and column stacking capability, which has resulted in improved load stability when transporting products, and an empty return ratio capacity of 6:1. As a result, the RPC is helping me to achieve real time and cost savings for my business.”

The RPCs come in a variety of sizes, brand identity options and colours for closed loop operations.
