Discharging high viscosity fluids from flowbins and other load carriers is difficult and results in unnecessary waste

Discharging high viscosity fluids from flowbins and other load carriers is difficult and results in unnecessary waste

Food manufacturers, such as dairies who make use of fruit pulp and concentrates in the production of yoghurt and other products often lose a portion of their raw materials as they are unable to extract 100% of the product from the container. This results in unnecessary costs and food waste.

The Liquid Bulk Container (LBC) paired with a high viscosity liner allows producers to make use of the full potential of their raw materials, reducing waste and increasing discharging efficiency. The high viscosity liner is equipped with an easy to use, portable pump system to handle various thick, liquid products.

The high viscosity liner solution is also more hygienic as every liner comes with FDA, ISO, etc. certification. Because the liners are single use and 100% recyclable, food producers have a cleaner, more traceable packaging solution for raw materials and less packaging waste that end up in landfills.

If you are a dairy or other food producer and would like to know more about LBC solutions, contact us today for more information.

The Smartload Combo Liquid Bulk Container (LBC) is the perfect solution for intermediate liquid bulk loads.

Without the addition of unnecessary packaging waste the Smartload LBC combines reusability and hygiene with ease of use and efficiency.

Are you making use of unnecessary labour and inverters to avoid dirty, broken, wooden pallets going into your production facility?

Are you making use of unnecessary labour and inverters to avoid dirty, broken, wooden pallets going into your production facility?

Why Smartload’s reusable plastic pallets are the better choice over wooden pallets.

One of the main issues with using wooden pallets in your supply chain is that it creates extra work and time wastage for the company on the receiving end. We’ve seen clients receiving raw materials/ products on wooden pallets and they have to first unpack and repack the product onto plastic pallets, as wood is not allowed into the production facilities.

Wooden pallets are not the safest choice for your logistics as they retain moisture, and can harbour bugs. There are uneven edges, splinters and nails that make them difficult to handle and stack. Aside from the obvious unhygienic downfalls of wood, they create unnecessary labour during the unpacking and stacking process. Our reusable and recyclable pallets are extremely durable, hygienic and can be used in the smart asset pooling system.

Improves the sanitation of supply chains

Reusable packaging and load carriers are far more sanitary than wooden pallets; companies who take advantage of reusable pallets and a pooling system will find it easier to comply with food transportation rules. They do not absorb liquids and are impervious to infestation and contamination.

Sanitation and proper food handling during transportation is the key to preventing costly recalls and lawsuits. The choice of pallet used during the supply chain impacts a manufacturer’s ability to ensure food is safe and healthy for the end consumer.

Smartload for the smarter choice

Are you making use of unnecessary labour and inverters to avoid dirty, broken, wooden pallets going into your production facility? By making the switch to Smartload’s plastic pallets you can avoid unnecessary handling of product, labour costs, delays in offloading bays and throughout your supply chain as well as potential product damage.

SmartTrees – smarter for the planet

SmartTrees – smarter for the planet

At Smartload’s core we are focused on driving environmental sustainability by helping our clients reduce their waste creation, by offering an alternative to single-use packaging such as wood and cardboard. This has inspired us to start our tree planting project – SmartTrees. By planting trees we are not only reducing waste, but reversing the effect of unsustainable practices on the environment.

Why tree planting? 

Environmental benefits

Trees not only provide beauty, shade and a connection with nature, they’re also beneficial for so many reasons. They help fight climate change by absorbing harmful CO2 and removing it from the air, and storing it while releasing oxygen. One tree can produce enough oxygen for four people, so they are our main survival tool. From purifying air, helping to cool the planet and boosting biodiversity to being flood and soil erosion preventors, trees are vital to Earth.

Forest conservation

The enormous global demand for wood is greater than the supply. This imbalance is devastating forests, which play a vital role in stabilising the global climate. Using plastic pallets instead of wooden pallets reduces the need to cut down forests, which is good for the environment – and for all of us.

More trees = happier children (and teachers!)

There is strong evidence to show that the amount of trees on a school property has an effect on academic performance and overall wellbeing of the learners, their teachers and other school staff. More trees = happier children!

Planted trees create interest and children are taught about the importance of trees and the role they play in our natural environment. Encouraging environmental awareness in the young is key to keeping the planet clean and protecting our future sustainability.

It’s important for children of all ages to have time outdoors in areas with trees and grass as it helps to lower stress and improve moods. 

There are many schools in underprivileged areas near the Smartload HQ that need trees and we aim to help these schools with the SmartTrees initiative. The planting of trees will help to make these schools a more positive place for the children to learn, play, relax and grow.

LK Zeeman primary school in Paarl was selected as our first school and we have planted 10 trees so far. We are very excited about this initiative and we believe that with the support of our clients and partners we will be able to plant many more trees in the future.

If you are interested in partnering with Smartload or would like more information about the initiative, please contact us.
