ORBIS Corp., Oconomowoc, Wis., introduced an all-plastic pallet designed to optimize the supply chain of small footprint retailers by eliminating product touches during the order replenishment process from distribution center (DC) to store to floor.
With the 42x30 small-format HP pallet, full case and split cases can be sorted and loaded at the DC. The pallet is then delivered to the store and used as a replenishment vehicle at the point of sale. Once pallets arrive at the retailer, they can be moved directly to the floor, reducing labor costs and maximizing storage space.
Its 30-inch width allows for easy access through narrow doorways and tight store aisles. Contoured corners won’t damage product, and the solid body construction accommodates a variety of load sizes and weights.
This 42x30 pallet offers truckload density, with 45 pallet locations per 53-foot trailer, generous clearance for forklifts to de-nest a full stack of pallets with slanted fork entry and a discontinuous, stepped pallet lip, ease of manual handling with a 20-pound tare weight and ergonomic hand hole and added efficiency with molded-in stretch wrap notches in each pallet corner.
