Schoeller Arca Systems has launched a returnable plastic crate which it says occupies 80 per cent less space when nested leading to significant cost savings.
Users can rotate the crates 180 degrees and stack them when full, a process simplified by the crate’s two-colour appearance.
The stack nest container is designed for transporting agricultural products, such as fresh fruit, salads and vegetables. It has an individual load capacity of 15kg and is suitable for use in cold stores. The 600 x 400 x 238mm container weighs 1.7kg and when nested, 220 units will fit on one pallet.
