Van der Windt mini-crates offer maximum value
A new collapsible mini-crate which measures just 27mm high when folded down is making transportation and display of agricultural, horticultural and retail goods easier than ever.
The crates form the latest part of the huge range of products available from Van Der Windt UK and have already proved popular in Europe for packing fruit, vegetables, herbs and plants as well as consumer goods.
Measuring 266mm long by 173mm wide, the crates expand to 106mm in height and are designed to provide easy ventilation to keep produce fresh and appealing to consumers.
The crates are delivered ‘shelf ready’ to allow for straightforward retail display and are certified to EU food safety standards (Framework Regulation 1935/2004)
The tough and durable polypropylene crates are easily stored and transported and a standard ISO pallet measuring 800mm x 1,200mm can hold more than 460 crates. In a single trip a heavy goods vehicle could transport around 12,000 crates when expanded or more than 60,000 in flat format.
LDPE cover sheets can also be supplied in up to 6 colours, with optional ventilation holes, to accompany each crate and support company branding and promotion.
The crates are the latest addition to the 15,000-strong selection of products supplied by Van Der Windt UK, all chosen to reflect the company’s customer-focused approach dedicated to high quality service delivered efficiently and at market-leading value.
Van Der Windt UK general manager Richard Selby said: “The versatility of these mini-crates is a very attractive feature, both in terms of their application across a wide range of sectors and their ability to be stored and transported easily.
“The mini-crates are already proving a success in southern Europe and Germany because of their strength and capacity so we are pleased to be able to offer the product to our customers in the UK.
“They should be particularly popular with the agricultural, horticultural and retail sectors given their potential to keep produce fresh and protected and can be put on display in shops with minimal effort required.”
