To farm is to look ahead. While the rest of us are dreaming of summer, farmers are already thinking about autumn, when harvest is due. Because farming success requires good planning, on and off the field. Schoeller Allibert agrees. That’s why we’ve put so much thought into our packaging solutions for agricultural logistics. Our range is so versatile and has so many advantages that even a short summary would take as long as… well: exactly as long as this article!
Produce must be kept fresh and handled delicately all through its supply chain, from harvest through auction, processing and storage, to point of sale. That’s a challenge Schoeller Allibert has accepted since 1970, when we started providing innovative and sustainable packaging for agriculture, horticulture and even viticulture.
The rigid pallet containers (RPCs) we’ve designed and refined throughout the decades are a high-quality form of transit packaging that prevents waste, ensures food safety, reduces environmental footprint and increases your profitability. How? Let us count the ways.
First off, Schoeller Allibert packaging is made from plastic. That’s a handful of advantages right there.
Our EFSA-approved recycling process turns used crates and containers into new food contact-approved packaging. Put simply, our solutions are sustainable, without compromising on performance.
Our Rigid Pallet Containers, or RPCs, have many operational advantages as well:
Additionally, our wide range covers not just rigid pallet containers (RPCs) in various footprints, but also:
And if the variety of our standard products doesn’t quite fit with your needs, Schoeller Allibert is happy to custom-design a solution that suits you.
Variety and versatility
In fact, the variety and versatility of our product range for agricultural logistics deserves a closer look. Because of our decades-long experience with farmers of all sorts, and their wide-ranging logistical needs, we know that fit-for-purpose is not just a nice-to-have in this industry: it’s a must-have. And that’s what we deliver. Just a few examples are:
We could go on, and talk about packaging that works great for distributing and displaying potatoes, onions, pumpkins and lettuce. Or the range that is perfect for harvesting the grapes that will turn into wine… or champagne.
Or boast about how our assets are very simple to handle, fully compatible with automated processing, offer track and trace options, reduce your logistics cost by improving your supply chain efficiency…
But you get the idea. Schoeller Allibert knows which kind of logistics solutions farmers need. And when they need to start to think about them. (Which is now!) That’s why we can confidently say: you do the harvest – we’ll provide the packaging.Back to overview
