This approval follows Progressive’s acceptance in late 2011 of the Loscam pallet in its ambient distribution centres and the use of the Loscam pallet as its preferred platform for imported goods.
Foodstuffs has already approved the Loscam pallet for their ambient and temperature controlled distribution centres.
The Loscam pallet has made an impact in the New Zealand pallet rental market for use in fast moving supply chains where 4-way access is critical. The Loscam pallet also has proven to be a much safer platform during loading and unloading as the pallet is configured to not tip when being handled by forklifts.
Nick Trask, Loscam’s New Zealand Business Manager explains that the company discussed requirements with customers before introducing their pallets into the New Zealand market. Loscam combines their safer and faster-to-operate pallet with world class customer service and management systems to offer their customers in New Zealand a truly unbeatable service offering.
The enhanced stability of Loscam pallets during handling allows their customers to safely load vehicles, improving truck utilisation by up to 20%. These benefits will now be extended to companies operating in the chilled and frozen space.
Loscam is a leading provider of Returnable Package Handling (RPH) solutions for use in Australian and Asian supply chains.
