Maximise your pallet yield and minimise transport costs

We’ll help you match or exceed current protection, save on space and weight.

We can source or design packs that are lighter, smaller and just as strong as your current ones. Modern single-walled boxes can reduce height and length by up to a centimetre with no loss of protection. This allows for pallet optimisation and can reduce the number of journeys per volume of goods shipped.

Lower fuel costs, lower CO2 emissions

The right transit pack is light, strong and space efficient – in two important ways: it is a better fit for the product, so you are not shipping air, and it allows pallet optimisation, so you can shift more stock in fewer vehicle movements. Fewer journeys equals less CO2, so the right packaging is an important part of a low carbon supply chain.
