Palcut Solution reduced 51 fully packed lorries to only 8
A customer used 1.2 million sheets of corrugated cardboard annually in their palletising plant. These were delivered with 700 sheets on each pallet with a weight of 0.276 kilos per sheet. So, every year approx. 1,700 pallets were delivered, corresponding to 51 full-load deliveries by lorry. By using a Palcut Solution and switching to half their current sheet weight, the customer has reduced their packaging consumption from 332 tonnes to 166 tonnes per year.
By replacing corrugated cardboard with anti-slip sheets from a reel, the number of delivered pallets has reduced from 1,700 to 240 – corresponding to 43 fewer full-load deliveries. According to the customer’s request to always have materials for 2 weeks in stock, the Palcut Solution has also resulted in the materials only taking up 11 pallets in the warehouse instead of the previous 76. This is because there are 7 times as many interlayer sheets on a reel compared to a pallet with corrugated paper. The achieved reduction in packaging is 166 tonnes of paper, which corresponds to 66 tonnes of CO2.
