FOR AGRICULTURAL MACHINERY
Innovative Durable Sustainable
When manufacturing agricultural machinery, large and heavy parts need to be transported over long distances within the supplier network. Plastic foldable large containers are designed to meet the specific requirements of the industry, providing a durable, robust design with a load capacity of up to 900 kg. ORBIS Europe manufactures its reusable transport packaging from high percentages of recycled materials, thereby reducing CO2 emissions and supporting the manufacturers’ sustainability targets. Plastic transport packaging for the agricultural machinery industry is suitable for body parts, hydraulic parts, white parts, bulk material and more.
Still commonly used in agricultural machinery manufacturing are wood and metal boxes. Challenges for manufacturers are the high weight, damages caused by rust or humidity as well as high transportation costs for empty containers. With their high load capacity and stability, plastic transport packaging offers comprehensive product protection while also being light and easy to handle. The collapsible design reduces freight costs and emissions in reverse logistics as only one truck is needed instead of three. The repairability features allow customers to save on replenishment and repair costs. Additional cost advantages are unlocked through the buyback option for obsolete containers. ORBIS plastic transport packaging solutions are a cost-effective and environmentally friendly alternative to traditional wooden or metal packaging options.
With a weight capacity of up to 900 kg and a European standard footprint of 1200 x 800 mm, the GitterPak® is a 1 to 1 replacement for steel gitterboxes.
Durable transport packaging with low tare weight and high load capacity
Reduced CO2 emissions through use of recycled material, supporting sustainability targets
Collapsible design reduces freight costs and emissions in reverse logistics, efficient stacking in warehouse
Minimised product and packaging damages, easy and quick on-site repair
No disposal costs, cost advantages through buyback and recycling
In the agricultural machinery industry, many manufacturers use wood or metal boxes to transport their heavy and large parts. Metal gitterboxes are heavy and susceptible to rust and other damages and repairing them is costly. Wood boxes are susceptible to damage through splintering, cracks or moisture affecting their structural integrity. Added to that, both packaging types are not foldable, leading to high return transportation costs when empty. Collapsible plastic pallet boxes are a potential alternative to steel gitterboxes or wood boxes. Using foldable containers optimises space utilisation in return transportation. For additional space savings in storage facilities, plastic transport packaging offers secure stacking of up to 6 bins high. The durable plastic design ensures a long service life and minimises product damage. ORBIS offers to buyback obsolete plastic load carriers at end of life and recycles 100% of the materials.
In large supplier networks of the agricultural machinery industry, heavy and hard-to-fit parts are often transported over long distances. By offering high weight capacities and a long service life, plastic transport packaging fulfills the high requirements of the industry. Manufacturers also need foldable solutions to make the transportation of empty containers as efficient as possible. Different agricultural machinery parts, such as body parts, hydraulic parts, white parts, bulk material and more, can be transported safely with plastic containers.
