The Pally, from the transit packaging innovator, Loadhog, is ‘raising eyebrows’ within the food retail market by bridging the gap between retailers’ need for a wheeled ‘dolly-like’ solution and suppliers’ for a stable pallet.
Setting new standards for efficient movement and product handling in businesses across the UK, Europe and North America, the Pally is a robust plastic pallet, handleable with any form of materials’ handling equipment, rackable, stackable and invaluable alongside high speed automated production lines.
Unlike any other pallet, one foot press on a pedal at either end of the 800x600mm unit transforms the Pally into a fully mobile, wheeled dolly – allowing instant mobility on demand, anywhere and, with a rating of up to 500kg, has a lot of moving power! Another pedal press returns the Pally to a pallet, lifting the wheels clear of the floor, transferring all the weight onto the pallet bearers – creating a stable, secure unit for stacking, picking and transit.
The Pally – requiring no pump truck or forklift but compatible with both – can move goods within supplier and manufacturer operations. Food and drink manufacturers can utilise the Pally to transport goods between the various sites they may have and, in addition to suppliers, can send products directly into retailers with no ‘double-handling’ required. With the availability of several accessories for the Pally it can work within any retail environment, becoming a merchandising unit which can display a branded cut-out to promote the goods it holds.
Loadhog’s Pallet Lid – with sales increasing constantly year on year – can also be valuable between suppliers and retailers. When placed on top of loaded containers its tensionable straps provide unrivalled stability when attached to the pallet and eliminate the need for stretch wrap, banding or a basic lid cover. On arrival at its destination the lid can be removed quickly and returned to the supplier for repeated use. On average, and depending on the quantity required, the payback is approximately six months, with suppliers receiving a return on their investment within one year’s usage.
Protective, waterproof and impermeable to sunlight, the lid prevents product damage; enables double-stacking in transit, thereby increasing vehicle fill by 100 per cent to maximise transport journeys and withstands four tonnes of weight, allowing at least double-stacking to reduce storage space requirements.
