ORBIS Corp., Oconomowoc, Wis., introduced a new pallet to its XpressPal family.

The XpressPal (XP) Grocery pallet is designed to ship finished goods from distribution centers to retail in grocery supply chains.

The new legs on the XP Grocery pallet are round, making the pallet compatible with similar pallets on the market and increasing the pallet’s impact performance in rugged grocery environments. In addition, the XP Grocery pallet’s legs are now 18 inches apart, giving forklifts maximum room to remove stacked pallets without the pallets sticking together, allowing for easier material handling.

The XP Grocery pallet’s top deck includes a molded-in texture to minimize load shifting. The texture increases friction, so goods are less likely to slip off the pallet. In addition, the XP Grocery pallet’s top deck includes ergonomic handle holes, so the pallet can be manually moved or unstacked, making it an applicable option for manual and automated systems. For additional anti-slip friction, rubber grommets are available.

The XP Grocery pallet is a 1-piece fully hygenic plastic pallet made of high-pressure injection-molded construction, giving the ability to withstand rugged handling. The pallet’s flow-through design eliminates areas where contaminants, such as dirt, dust and liquid, can collect.
