Containers for trade and e-commerce
Due to the significant increase in the popularity of ordering products via the Internet and deliveries of groceries to the customer's home, the ecological factory Georg Utz offers proven solutions used in both warehouse automation and manual product picking - plastic openwork containers with a trapezoidal profile. The Utz Group has gained experience in the distribution of similar containers on the Western European market m.in in cooperation with retail chains and the e-commerce industry in England and France, where the system of delivering groceries to the customer's home and in the click and collect system has been developing intensively for several decades.
Among the most important advantages of this plastic rotary container with dimensions of 600x400x355 mm are safety, functionality and space saving. Special holders for bags with food products facilitate the operation of the entire process and guarantee the safety of transported food. The drainage holes allow moisture to be drained and in addition, the containers are suitable for storing heavy loads weighing up to 30 kg. in piles.
Another standard eco container from Utz, which works well in the distribution network of goods in the trade of specialized enterprises, especially for pharmaceutical and clothing industries, is NESCO container. The advantage of this product, also with a trapezoidal profile, is a permanently hinged lid, which additionally protects the transported products and is extremely ergonomic in handling the distribution process. This solution also saves space after unloading and folding the lids, allowing you to put-in-containers into each other and thus reduce the original cargo volume by up to 75%.
All these features of the products, designed specifically for the needs of the e-commerce market, are a confirmation of the tradition of supporting sustainable solutions in the economy used since the 40s of the last century and testify to the mission of the ecological enterprise implemented by Georg Utz for years.
Variants for every occasion – warehouse automation.
The spectrum of warehouse activities is wide – from stacking and storing goods, through palletizing, to picking and packaging. Thanks to warehouse automation processes, the company can significantly improve efficiency and optimize the time of preparing goods for shipment or reduce the number of errors at the stage of shipment preparation. However, these activities would not have been possible without specialized containers adapted to the warehouse automation solutions. In automatic warehouses, containers must be very durable, strong and adapted to the company's storage system, while having partitions or inspection holes to facilitate the storage and picking of small products. For warehouses with roller conveyors, it is important that the containers have a smooth bottom, allowing them to move quietly. These challenges are not a problem for EUROTEC system containers, which are Utz's flagship product for warehouse automation applications another example of eco-product offered by the ecological factory Georg Utz.
The advantages of plastic pallets that change the stereotype about their high cost.
In high-bay warehouses, durable, stable and hygienic plastic pallets from the offer of the Georg Utz eco-factory turn out to be irreplaceable. It is worth taking a closer look at the operating costs today, because as the examples of our customers show in the long run with today's price increases in wooden pallets, the profitability of wooden pallets, which have much shorter service life, is not so obvious.
Using plastic pallets from an ecological factory, we gain a product with a constant tare, with an extremely smooth surface, which will not only serve for many years and will be more hygienic in use, but also will cause less problems in everyday use. These are the features particularly appreciated by Utz customers’ using warehouse automation processes.
