Packaging and supply chain solutions provider Esko has demonstrated the new modelling capabilities of the Cape Pack and Cape Truckfill Software.
Designed for packaging and pallet load optimisation, the software facilitates maximised payloads and enhanced transportation using several Green Ox Pallet technologies.
Cape and Esko Global Business Development Brad Leonard said: "Green Ox pallets can, quite literally, help reduce the number of trucks needed to transport the same amount of product, which benefits our clients and the planet.
"Esko is thrilled that Cape Pack is the first transport software in the world that enables clients to evaluate this innovative pallet technology."
A lightweight alternative to wood, the Green Ox Pallet enables the client to increase the amount of truck bed space required by 5-30%.
Green Ox Pallet Technology president Adam Pener said: "Esko and Cape Pack have long served as visionary leaders in truck modelling and efficiency.
"As the global precedent set by IKEA demonstrates, in the future all truck beds will maximise area and volume, thereby reducing the number of trucks on our roads.
"Green Ox is honoured to be aligned with Esko -- a company that understands the importance of giving their clients the next-generation tools necessary to drive innovation, profitability, and significantly reduce CO2 emissions."
