The bottling sector is an industry in which from large producers of spirits to small water springs coexist, and where there are at least two main sales channels: Off-Trade and On-Trade, which translates at operational level into two differentiated product lines by the type of packaging used: disposable containers and returnable containers.
In the vast majority of countries, with a few exceptions in northern Europe, all consumer products sold the Off-Trade are packaged in disposable containers, and the vast majority of the On-Trade product is packaged in reusable containers. However, the plastic pallet is by its very nature a device intended for reuse irrespective of the type of primary packaging.
Most of the bottled beverages distributed to the Off-Trade are transported by pool or exchange pallets, which are reused thanks to the volume synergies that occur in the commercial distribution field. For this, our EXPERT range is being successfully and massively used as a pool pallet transporting the consumer goods of the main companies in this industry.
"The plastic palet is basicly a device designed for reuse independently of the type of primary packaging."
However, the bottling sector compared to other fields has a particularity, which is the reusable container part, where the product is transported in a bottle (usually glass), contained in a box (generally plastic), in turn contained on a pallet. In this case, many bottlers have put their trust in the EXPERT range of Nortpalet taking advantage of our equipment.
Among the main advantages of our plastic pallets, we highlight the following:
Longer durability than traditional wooden pallets.
Higher load capacity, which allows more product to be transported with a high safety standard.
They are hygienic and secure so they do not throw off chips or other elements in the production lines.
Being lighter they are easier to handle, and contribute to reduce the waste of fossil fuels and CO2 emissions.
