Crates & Pallets

Fri, 04/26/2013 - 14:33 -- content_admin

Plastic crates & pallets reduce the amount of packaging waste generated. They provide for efficient storage and transportation of products, including fragile fresh agricultural products or glass bottles. The life span of crates and pallets is around 10 to 15 years which decreases costs per circulation and considerably influences raw material savings. The market of crates and pallets made of recycled plastics has a great potential for development as these products clearly help the development of a circular economy. To further develop, the market needs standardization. That is why this Group develops an EU declaration of conformity system.
