CHEP Australia introduces their next generation of retail ready display pallets developed in consultation with manufacturers and retailers for the FMCG retail supply chain.
Featuring a small footprint, CHEP’s retail ready display pallets deliver new levels of efficiencies and benefits with their ability to fit the majority of manual handling equipment used in Australian FMCG supply chains.
The FMCG retail display pallet has been engineered to beam rack where other retail display pallets cannot. Seeking to incorporate the new display pallet into existing racking infrastructure in the design phase, the team developed a ‘racking cradle’ that enables display pallets to be racked and is also compatible with CHEP’s timber pallets, giving warehouse managers the convenience and flexibility of racking the new display pallet or timber pallet within the same infrastructure.
CHEP’s new retail display pallets boast anti-slip technology for increased safety with the top deck featuring additional rubber grommets to minimise load movement, resulting in better load containment, while rubber grommets in the forklift entry points ensure the display pallet doesn’t slip off fork tines while in transit.
Key features and benefits of CHEP’s new FMCG retail display pallets include reduced risk of product damage through one-touch movement from manufacturer to retail floor; excellent display properties and ease of replenishment; compatible with existing transport infrastructure, fitting three pallets across a standard truck tray when loaded ‘landscape’ and four pallets when loaded ‘portrait’; compatible with a range of secondary shelf ready packaging; modular to CHEP’s beverage trays and reusable plastic crates; immune to contamination from bacteria and pests; non-porous surface with no nails or splinters; and lightweight at only 8.3kg.
