As fuel prices at the pump surge past £1.50/litre and potentially on their way towards £2/litre, plastics moulding specialist S&S Plastics, an IntraLogisteX exhibitor later this month (Stand 220), has a novel solution to increase logistics efficiency through the implementation of its innovative ‘Insert Tub’ solution.
Insert Tubs are ideal for retailers looking for increased efficiency and ways to avoid passing on increasing fuel costs to their customers.
The S&S Plastics Insert Tubs are a removeable insert for storage and shipping totes that allow for a single tote to increase its SKU capacity by 800% without risk of cross contamination.
This number relates to a standard pallet now being able to carry 42 totes with up to eight individual SKUs inside, increasing its load from 42 to 336 SKUs.
With integrated QR-code placements, compatibility across stack-nester and storage totes and a design that makes them robot-friendly, the Insert Tubs are a useful response to soaring costs across the retail, haulage, and storage industries.
Launched at the end of 2021, and already counting a luxury London retailer and a Manchester-based multi-brand e-commerce specialist amongst their repeat-buying clients, S&S Plastics has hit the ground running with orders for over 90,000 units already shipped.
“We’ve seen that as fuel price uncertainty has risen so has interest in the Insert Tubs,” said said Nick Bortone, Managing Director of S&S Plastics. “They offer a simple solution to help offset fuel price rises and increase supply chain efficiency as a whole. Across e-commerce and logistics, the Insert Tubs are making a very real impact on brand health as firms look to reduce both costs and environmental emissions.”
Plastic injection moulding innovators, S&S Plastics, will showcase its Insert Tubs solution at IntraLogisteX on 29th and 30th March. The brand will be demonstrating how its recently launched product can cut costs and increase efficiency by up to 800% for operational and procurement managers across industry.
