ORBIS Corp. added a new Universal Container Pallet (UCP) to its suite of reusable plastic pallet offerings in Latin America. Designed to protect and transport foodservice products with ease, the 44-inch-by-56-inch two-piece snap-designed injection foam UCP optimizes daily operations in the food and beverage industry, the company says. The pallet’s plastic construction and flow-through rib design, which allows for easy cleaning and drying, makes the UCP a comprehensive solution for hygienic product distribution. The lightweight, durable and impact-resistant pallet features plastic construction, which makes it 100% recyclable at the end of its useful life. Additionally, the UCP is compatible with palletizers, depalletizers, automatic strapping/banding systems, conveyors and pallet washing systems, solidifying its place in ORBIS’ product lineup as a complete solution. The UCP also offers superior load stability and has central banding compatibilities with optional anti-slip grommets to help keep products secure. Highly impact resistant, the UCP’s 12-block design, thick deck ribbing and widened stringers all contribute to the pallet’s durability. The versatile pallet also can be optimized with divider sheets, top frames and stretch wrap to maximize product safety. Easily accessible, the pallet’s open base with chamfered base runners allows for improved full fork or low-profile hand truck access. It also can include advanced RFID or barcode configurations for added visibility into where products are located, preventing loss and increasing productivity. The new pallet will bring efficiency to food and beverage distribution throughout Latin America as the company grows its footprint in the LATAM region.
