A next generation small-footprint retail-ready display pallet, developed in consultation with manufacturers and retailers for the FMCG retail supply chain, has been released.

The new FMCG Retail Display Pallet builds on the success of CHEP's first-generation retail display pallet pool. It has been engineered to fit the majority of manual handling equipment used in Australian FMCG supply chains, and its features include the ability to beam-rack.

Business development manager Frank Vittoria said: "We've put the pallet through rigorous testing to achieve a maximum fork-entry width of 735mm on the same footprint. This design means most manufacturers and retailers can integrate the display pallet into their operations, without the need for any capital investment."

During the design phase, the team looked at ways to incorporate the new display pallet into existing racking infrastructure. The result was the development of a 'racking cradle' that enables display pallets to be racked and is also compatible with timber pallets, giving warehouse managers the convenience and flexibility of racking the new display pallet or timber pallet within the same infrastructure.

The manufacturer conducted tests in accordance with ISO standards to ensure that the FMCG Retail Display Pallet could be beam racked under load at elevated temperatures, and the results were positive.

The FMCG Retail Display Pallet also has anti-slip technology for increased safety. The top deck features additional rubber grommets to minimise load movement, resulting in better load containment, and the fork lift entry points have been fitted with rubber grommets to ensure the display pallet doesn't slip off fork tines while in transit.
