ORBIS® Corporation, an international manufacturer of reusable packaging and supply chain optimization expert, will feature its spectrum of reusable packaging to support a more efficient and reliable consumer product replenishment process, at ProMat 2017. This portfolio provides the versatility and scalability needed by retailers to implement packaging and quickly gain benefits as their business model evolves from traditional distribution practices to omnichannel fulfillment and distribution. The retail delivery system and ORBIS experts will be at Booth S1803 during the show, April 3 to 6 in Chicago, Illinois.
"The retail industry is ever-changing and supply chains are acting fast to adapt to heightened demands," said Andrea Nottestad, marketing manager for ORBIS Corporation. "We strive to make ORBIS a one-stop source for customers and their supply chain needs. Our complete retail delivery system enables retailers and CPGs to efficiently move product from the plant to the distribution center to the truck and, ultimately, to the store aisle while saving time, decreasing touches, and improving customer and associate experiences. We have options to meet any retailer size and format."
The spectrum of products within the retail delivery system includes:
Small-Format Pallet - Options for Retailers of all Sizes
The 42" x 30" Small-Format HP pallet frees up trailer space by allowing more pallets to fit in each vertical stack, while maximizing cube efficiency of the truck with 45 configurations versus the standard 30. This pallet allows full cases and split cases to be sorted and loaded at the distribution center to optimize routes. After arriving at the retailer, it can be moved directly to the floor and used as a replenishment vehicle at the point of sale. This small-format pallet maximizes floor space and fits in narrow aisles to accommodate compact retail formats.
OPTE Bulk - Packages Goods for Storage and Shipping
The OPTE Bulk is a collapsible bulk system comprised of a plastic pallet, reusable sleeve and top cap, in footprints from 32" x 44" to 40" x 48". Sleeves are available in several heights, styles and access door configurations. When full, the OPTE Bulk protects bulk products and tote systems during shipping. When empty, the sleeves collapse for easier storing and reduced freight costs, and the lightweight components allow for safer handling.
Tote Dolly - Adds Instant Mobility to Tote Applications
Tote dollies are available for a variety of hand-held totes and trays. These dollies can be used within a distribution center for easy tote handling between workstations and at retail for efficient replenishment. Dollies are available in a variety of materials, footprints and configurations. Nonmarking casters also are available for retail floors. Select ORBIS FliPak® totes are dolly-compatible.
Picking Cart - Improves Picking, Fulfillment and Distribution
Carts can streamline picking and fulfillment in both distribution centers and retail environments. When integrated with reusable totes, users have a flexible system that connects picking to delivery. They can be integrated with reusable picking and distribution totes to more conveniently store and stage goods. The mobility of the carts is critical to accelerate picking speed and improve order accuracy in this fast-paced landscape. All carts feature heavy-duty casters to minimize noise and ensure easy maneuverability.
The Pally® - Streamlines Unloading and Replenishing
The Pally® is part dolly, part pallet. This dual feature allows materials to be stored, transported and distributed with less equipment, minimal labor and few touch points. When mobile, the Pally quickly converts to static mode with a press of the pedal. When static, the rubber braking stabilizers ensure the Pally withstands lateral force, allowing for stable transport within a trailer. For small-format retailers, the Pally supports frequent product deliveries and easily maneuvers in tight spaces. It also assists in picking and fulfilling material and enables staging of e-commerce products designated for store pickup.
