Optimum Handling Solutions multitrip packaging range

Monday, 23 July, 2012 | Supplied by: Optimum Handling Solutions

Optimum Handling Solutions has a range of multitrip plastic tubs, crates and delivery trolleys, tall boys, bins and pallets that offer a more environmentally favourable carbon footprint than single trip cardboard boxes and cartons, according to UK sustainability consultancy Sustain.

Sustain compared the two solutions and measured the embodied greenhouse gas emissions for the whole of their life cycle, taking into account all the raw materials, transport and energy use involved in manufacture, usage and disposal.

Based on a useable life of 92 return trips over five years, plastic’s carbon footprint is less than 30 CO2e kg per unit, according to Sustain. Using the same measuring criteria, cardboard’s carbon footprint is around 70 CO2e kg per unit.

The multitrip plastic alternatives could also save money, says Optimum Handling Solutions, providing an ROI in around 10 trips, and at the end of their service life span all of the plastic can be recycled.

The range is constructed from tough polyethylene plastic with an additional coil spring rising base feature, designed to making handing easier and safer by eliminating the need for workers to bend repetitively.

Trolleys have been designed to maintain the top load at ideal lifting height.

Custom solutions can also be manufactured, if required.
