The stacking boxes provide space for dunnage if required. However, as they stack only, they can be inefficient for the return of empty containers in a closed loop. Especially if it is over long distances. Folding boxes offer a much better density for return of empties but have no space for any dunnage to protect the part.
CPL have developed a very useful solution to this problem by welding the top part of a folding container to a standard stacking container. The resultant hybrid gives optimal space for dunnage with the best density for return logistics possible.
CPL have many years’ experience of producing vacuum formed trays for the automotive industry. We fully understand the complex logistics loops of the worldwide supply chain. This enables us to ask the right questions at the design stage to come up with the right solution.
Regardless of whether you sell industrial parts/components to B2B clients, send consumer goods to individuals, or are part of a multinational supply chain, having items damaged in transit can have a (significant) detrimental impact on your business success. CPL solutions are proven to minimise this.
Our thermo formed products start with design. We have many years’ experience of tool design and with our CAD capabilities, this enables us to effectively and efficiently work with the customer to come up with the best design possible. We are very experienced in selecting the right material to use and quickly establish the optimal gauge to give the lowest cost product that works.
At CPL we are in a unique position, in that we manufacture our own high quality sheets of plastic using our own on-site extrusion machinery and technology. Using raw plastic materials in pellet form, and returned plastic that is recycled, to enable a sustainable product (by closing the loop), we can create the exact size, finish, plastic content and colour you require.
