Goplasticboxes.com's new foldable GoBox 2600 CL crate for growers and retail logistics professionals
Ideal for handling fruit and veg, the perforated design means growers can rest assured that their produce will remain fresh from the farm to the retailer. Where cardboard and solid wood or plastic crates prevent air from circulating, small ventilation holes in the sides and base of the GoBox 2600 CL allow positive airflow, keeping produce cool and preserving their condition for longer.
Since fresh produce can be placed directly into the crates without being pre-bagged or paper-wrapped, retail customers can significantly reduce packaging waste.
Lighter, stronger and quieter than other models on the market, the crate has a unique latch beneath its handle that locks the side walls securely in place offering 39 litres of storage space, but when lifted, the latch collapses the box virtually flat to a height of 30mm, allowing customers to optimise vehicle fill and reduce return journey fuel bills. For instance, a standard truck can hold up to 7,920 flat-packed crates - 33 stacks of 240 crates per pallet - ensuring minimal wastage space in transit.
On the shop floor, well-designed hand holes at both ends of the GoBox 2600 CL and a strong, sturdy base, mean it can be easily lifted and positioned in storage racks without the risk of getting fingers trapped.
The GoBox 2600 CL measures 595mm (L) x 398mm (W) x 200mm (H), weighs just 1.6kg.
Although using the GoBox 2600 CL requires a higher initial outlay than single trip cardboard packaging, its durable, washable design means that it can be reused repeatedly thus providing a long term transit solution, which in time will generate an excellent return on investment. It can also be recycled.
