UK-based packaging distributor Kite Packaging has introduced a new range of returnable plastic containers, designed by LoadHog, for the reusable and multi-trip packaging markets.
The new range features containers equipped with handgrips and lids, as well as pallets and stackable / nestable containers in a variety of sizes.
Formed of new and recycled polypropylene, the containers are designed to address handling and logistic issues, increase load stability and vehicle fill, and reduce packaging waste, labour, transport and consumable costs.
The new attached lid containers can be used as a standalone product or as a part of a modular system. The lid design enables them to be secured in a vertical line, without hanging over the side.
The containers also protect products during assembly, processing, and storage and distribution processes.
Designed for use in transit system, the new plastic pallet boxes are produced from a polyester powder coating, and feature lids that sit flat against the box when nested.
The patented stackable and nestable boxes can be lifted by forklifts and pump trucks, and enable easy handling of products.
Kite Packaging recently acquired a 29,000ft² industrial warehouse unit in Letchworth, UK.
