Improved logistics and handling performance
In response to market demand for smaller retail pallets, we have introduced a new palletising system.
Nearly all our Christmas trees, bouquets and greenery are delivered on pallets; either on Small, Medium, Large or Euro pallets or in CC containers. Arbodania's palletisation of Christmas trees ensures safe, optimal deliveries to our customers. It protects the trees and greenery from damage during transportation and handling in warehouses and retail outlets.
LARGE pallets – 10 per truck
The "L" pallet holds the largest number of trees and is the most cost-efficient way of transportation and fast unloading. Each pallet takes from 60 to 200 trees depending on their size, and a full truckload consists of 10 pallets loaded sideways. The pallets weigh 800-1400 kg, and are unloaded using a telescopic handler, a front loader or similar equipment.
MEDIUM pallets – 20 per truck
The "M" size is half that of the Large pallets, and can hold from 35 to 100 trees per pallet depending on tree size and density. Medium pallets offer more flexible logistics solutions as smaller quantities packed on pallets means more flexible deliveries to retail outlets and easier handling at warehouses. They are also lighter and more stable than traditional Large pallets.
SMALL pallets – 30 per truck
Our smallest pallet "S" offers fewer trees per unit – a popular choice for smaller garden centres and retailers. This pallet typically weighs less than 500 kg and can be easily handled using small pallet trucks or manual pallet jacks.
