The Craemer Group as an experienced partner in beverage logistics

The beverage industry benefits from the customised pallet solutions the Craemer Group has to offer. These extremely durable and stable pallets guarantee the safe handling in both internal and external beverage logistics.

Extremely durable in high-rack systems – non-slip handling

The CR plastic pallet ranks among the most successful load carriers by Craemer, and is used in the beverage industry all over the world. Because of its integrated reinforcement profiles and the anti-slip coating on the top deck, this versatile industrial pallet is ideal for handling heavy loads. Even in high-rack systems, it is capable of secure beverage storage of weights of up to 1,750 kg. The CR plastic pallet is just one example of Craemer's innovative industry solutions best known for their excellent load bearing capacity, and high degree of functionality, process safety, efficiency and durability. Craemer's load carriers are suitable for pooling and universally applicable throughout the supply chain. They ensure safe beverage handling in automated systems, when being moved by forklifts, in high-rack systems and in the storage of, for example, containers of deep-frozen concentrates.

Versatility at work – worldwide

Whether light or heavy beverage containers, Craemer develops customised solutions for the storage and transport of drums and containers, and cartons and plastic crates containing bottles or six packs of cans. "We cater to the varied needs of our customers and their industry", says Bart Vandekerkhof, the export manager dealing with Craemer's international customers. Brasserie de Tahiti is one such customer. Specialising in the manufacture and distribution of beverages, the French Polynesian company is known in Europe for its own branded products, such as "Eau Royale" spring water. Brasserie de Tahiti also distributes branded beverages on behalf of other international manufacturers. "Distribution quite often presents a logistical challenge in the tropics because of higher temperatures and difficult transport and storage conditions", Mr Vandekerkhof explains. "This particular customer of ours has been using Craemer's CR3-5 plastic pallet for many years because it has proven to be particularly stable, safe and durable on both internal and external logistics circuits."

Innovation inspired by research and development

At the Group's headquarters, not only new products are developed, but they also undergo rigorous testing. "Before our pallets head for the South Seas, they have passed through a wide range of quality and stress tests. For example, we test their shape retention and stability at extreme temperatures in our climate chambers", says Vandekerkhof. "Our solutions are every bit as varied as the requirements of our customers in the beverage industry. Because of its international presence, its network of distribution partners and the close relationships cultivated with its customers, Craemer is well placed to recognise market trends and requirements early, and come up with appropriately innovative products and processes in a short space of time."
