Goplasticpallets.com, which supplies returnable plastic transit packaging (RPTP), has sold nearly 10,000 units of the large-volume GoBox 1311.
Designed and manufactured in Belgium by supply chain packaging specialist Cabka-IPS, the GoBox is a popular choice for large bulk storage, transportation and for use within closed-loop systems.
The 1311 is injection moulded at a clamping force of 1,000 tonnes. This low pressure is much better suited for producing a high-quality, large container at an economical price. The box has a capacity of 1,400 litres and a maximum dynamic load of 2,000kg. The standard container’s solid walls and an unventilated construction ensure it is completely weather-resistant and can be safely stacked up to seven boxes high.
It is designed to make loading easier, filling a truck with 42 boxes in 42 lifts, whereas a standard 670-litre box would take 78 lifts to fill the same truck, but at a much lower capacity.
One customer is Logoplaste, which was awarded a £35m contract to manufacture plastic bottles for a well-known sports drink. Goplasticpallets.com and 2,000 GoBox 1311 containers with lids made light work of storing the preforms in large volumes and transporting them around the facility.
Chris Jones, project manager for Logoplaste, said: “Plastic boxes were the logical choice because of their size and weight, hygienic qualities and they are reusable. As we handle many millions of preforms each month, the box had to meet the volume and storage requirements.”
