The premiere of the palletless 4-Way palettless load unit took place on the purple catwalk of the Möllers Group at the K plastics fair in Düsseldorf.
The Möllers Group has developed the palletless 2-way pack into a 4-way pack. This new, palletless technology enables pick-up by the fork-lift from all sides and sustainably optimises the combined transport of sea-, rail- and truck-freight on long export routes.
The created pack weighs 1450kg and rests on a specially-stabilised layer unit of 4 bags. The remaining central area underneath the recess is 100% filled with bagged material.
With palletless technology only 40% of the usual wrapping costs are incurred – with up to 5.5% higher utilisation rate. It is thus possible to utilise 100% of the possible load capacity.
Thanks to maximum transport stability and greater water-tightness the palletless unit can be stored and transshipped anywhere.
Time and cost intensive logistics for empty pallets are dispensed with. Pallet costs no longer apply, the film of the load-unit is completely recyclable and thanks to reduced CO2 emissions, it results in a positive ‘carbon footprint’.
