MEGAPACK Systems for Sea Freight Containers
SÖHNER has extended its product portfolio of reusable packaging systems with pallet boxes customized to the requirements of transporting goods in ISO containers.
The foldable pallet boxes ALPHA, GAMMA, JUMBO and MEGAPACK XXL are now available in special sizes adapted to the floor space in ISO containers. The standard boxes can be obtained in two new models, with dimensions of 1140 x 1140 mm and 1500 x 1140 mm. The XXL series can additionally be ordered in dimensions of 2250 x 800 mm, 2250 x 1200 mm and 2250 x 1495 mm.
Due to the special dimensions, the new pallet boxes maximize the use of the available space in sea freight containers and achieve packing densities of up to 98% in 40-feet-containers. Thus, costly cargo securing or filling of empty spaces is unnecessary. Transport damages which results from slipping or sliding of boxes will be avoided. Furthermore, the pallet boxes, made of plastic, are weather resistant and can be handled by forklifts.
As all MEGAPACK systems, the pallet boxes optimized for ISO containers consist of a base pallet, a protective sleeve and a lid. Through the effective volume reduction of up to 75 percent the boxes offer enormous saving potentials on costs in two areas: return of empties and storage.
