DS Smith Packaging Division manufacture Heavy Duty Pallet Boxes to suit standard 1200 x 1000 or 1200 x 800 “Euro Pallets” and are suitable for weights of up to 1000 kgs and above, with double stacking for worldwide shipment.
Pallet Box packaging problem to solve;
A mechanical device manufacturer was exporting goods to some of their clients in lightweight 20kg cardboard boxes. The cardboard boxes were cheap and effective, but required time consuming assembly and manual handling. This created inefficiencies in the supply chain as transport and warehouse facilities were not fully optimised and some of the cardboard packaging was difficult to dispose of.
DS Smith Packaging Division Pallet Box solution;
We developed various cardboard packaging ideas with the customer, replacing 56 cardboard boxes with 1 pallet based Heavy Duty container, incorporating a "telescopic" feature which allowed the customer to ship varying amounts of product by simply allowing the "outer" to be adjusted, up or down, to give a different height.
For airfreight shipments, the customer uses an DS Smith Packaging KAYPAL ®, which replaces the wooden pallets previously used and achieves further savings due to the significantly reduced weight.
DS Smith Packaging Division Pallet Box benefit for our customer;
Our customer was using 2000 x 20kg cardboard boxes per week, which have now been replaced by 36 Heavy Duty Pallet Boxes from DS Smith Packaging Division.
The clever "Telescopic" feature saves considerable packing time and allows the end user to access the product quickly and has also reduced damages.
Stretch wrap has also been eliminated from the packing solution and now the final recipient only has to manage a single packaging type (cardboard) in their waste stream.
This premium packaging solution has saved our customer 16% on his packaging spend.
