The logistics company of the fifth largest French food retail group has said goodbye to the wooden pallet and is now building up its own inventory of plastic pallets. For the internal flow of goods between its 29 warehouses and the approximately 1,600 supermarkets in the chain, the freight forwarder has purchased 330,000 of the CS1 plastic pallets from Craemer. The first pallets were delivered in 2018, and the entire order volume is expected to be in use by summer 2020. The company switched from wood to plastic mainly in order to improve working conditions for warehouse employees as well as to meet the requirements of increasing automation and a policy of sustainability.
Herzebrock/Telford. Leading plastics manufacturer Craemer Group has now launched a facility for plastics injection moulding at Hortonwood West in Telford, Great Britain. It is the Group’s second plastics facility in Telford for the production of wheelie bins, pallets and storage and transport containers. The Group is investing £25m (27,5 million euros) in the new site including large machinery to add new products to Craemer UK’s portfolio: a range of four-wheeled commercial waste bins and pallet boxes, which until recently could only be manufactured at the Group’s German headquarters. The company’s expansion will create up to 70 new jobs at the Telford site.

Wood or plastic: The decision which load carrier to use for your logistic processes is a difficult one to make. Although wood remains the standard material, plastic pallets are increasingly gaining momentum. Process automation and optimisation are becoming more important as retailers and various other industries are placing new demands on future-proof operations. Companies have to address these demands and also avoid product contamination or process disturbances often caused by wooden pallets. Thus interest in the use of plastic pallets is growing.
