Schoeller Allibert, a world leader in plastic reusable transit packaging (RTP), has extended its award-winning Maxinest range of produce trays for food and grocery distribution with the launch of the new Maxinest Dual Height Half Tray.
The newest member of the Maxinest family has been designed for maximum versatility, with the dual-height option and 400 x 300mm footprint enabling the same tray to be used for a number of different applications, and allowing both small and large store formats to be handled within the same supply chain.
The Maxinest Dual Height Half Tray’s two stacked height options make it an ideal solution for the field-to-store supply chain as Simon Knights, regional sales director -UK/Ireland from Schoeller Allibert explains: “The choice of heights offered by the new Maxinest offers multiple benefits for the food and grocery supply chain. At half-height the tray can be part-filled, which is ideal for protecting delicate produce such as soft fruit or herbs which could otherwise be crushed under its own weight.
“It also solves the problems faced by those supplying produce in both smaller volumes to convenience and speciality stores, and also in large volumes to chain supermarkets. The half-height option eliminates wasted space when supplying to small retailers and can be stacked alongside maximum height trays destined for larger stores, cutting down on the number of vehicles used to deliver to a variety of retailers.”
SCHOELLER ALLIBERT LINKS WITH FINANCE PARTNER
Schoeller Allibert, a world leader in plastic reusable transit packaging (RTP), has teamed up with LDF Supplier Finance to offer asset finance packages to its customers in the UK, enabling them to use its market-leading ranges of trays, containers, pallets and accessories – with no up-front capital investment.
The savings made by introducing reusable containers can often exceed the cost of the lease, which can make the initiative cash positive from month one. Simon Knights, Schoeller Allibert’s regional sales director for the UK and Ireland, explains: “Many years of customer experience shows that Schoeller Allibert plastic RTP can often pay for itself after just twelve trips, even when financed conventionally; so, when that investment is spread over time on a lease, the payback can be immediate. With a reusable life expectancy of over seven years, and many dozens of trips, it’s easy to see why the cost savings that our RTP can deliver are so attractive. Our new finance partnership will give more businesses the chance to convert to RTP and realise a whole host of economic, environmental and other supply-chain benefits.”
