Pallet containers play a pretty important role in the processing of citrus.
Florida citrus is bigger than most of us think. Did you know that the sunshine state provides 80% of America's orange juice? Drive down a Florida highway and there's a good chance you'll see a truck stacked with crates of hand-picked oranges. Filled with juicing favorites like the Valencia, these plastic harvest bins are likely on their way to the processing facility.
Think custom-design means expensive? Allow me to change your mind. In this post, I'll show you how expert crate design and a return program can add up to big savings.
I'll even back it up with a real-life example of a returnable crate design that resulted in immediate payback for one manufacturer.
If you're shopping for plastic pallet containers, you may be wondering if you really need a lid. I get asked that question all the time. Especially if we're talking about stacking the containers.
The answer is (as you probably guessed) that it depends.
Are empty containers taking up too much room in your warehouse?
When not in use, collapsible plastic containers fold to a fraction of their size and can drastically increase your available warehouse space.
Ventilated plastic bins play an important part in North Carolina's sweet potato industry.
So the next time you order up some sweet potato fries with a dusting of cinnamon you can thank the smooth and moisture-resistant qualities of ventilated plastic containers for keeping those taters fresh. That's because the way these spuds are planted, harvested and stored can all have a significant impact on the quality of the sweet potato.
Determining the optimal crate design can be difficult. Multiple materials, different designs and countless closure methods create unlimited choices for wooden crates.
