The highways and byways of the UK are packed daily with heavy goods and light good vehicles delivering everything the consumer needs to exist. From technology to fresh produce it seems the supply chain never stops.
However within the world of fresh produce there can be issues that if not mitigated for can damage product and ultimately limit sales.
Buyer perception in terms of shopping is imperative. The appearance of product in store can be the difference between a customer making a purchase or not. Let’s face it we have all lifted the apple trays to get to the product further below as we perceive these to be fresher or less damaged.
Therefore for the produce supplier it’s very important that any goods sent to store are protected in the most efficient manner to avoid damage.
Traditionally within the field of fresh produce cardboard has been heavily utilised. However is this the best solution for protecting product from the rigours of the supply chain?
There is another way and that’s why we here at Polymer Logistics have invested considerable time and effort into offering plastic crate solutions that not only protect product but also offer significant advantages in terms of sales and hygiene.
