Perfect Pallets’ booth will feature the company’s nesting plastic pallets with Microban® antimicrobial technology product protection embedded throughout the pallet to prevent microbes from growing on the surface of the pallets. For food producers and the pharmaceutical industry, this provides another layer of hygienic protection. 

According to the company, “We understand the importance of cleanliness.  That’s why we have partnered with Microban® to provide a cleaner pallet option for our customers.  Perfect Pallets, with the Microban® antimicrobial technology product protection, helps prevent the growth of bacteria on the surface of the pallet.  Pallets stay cleaner for longer and cleaner in between cleanings.  However, this does not eliminate the need for regular pallet cleaning.”

The Kennedy Group, originators of the placard label holder system,  is featuring the next generation Placard label holder systems. The Kennedy Group has evolved the original line to include single, sequential, and variable barcode requirements and RFID placard label holder solutions. 

Now, the placard label holder system can identify containers and pallets with single, sequential, or variable data  barcodes or RFID tags which allow customers to keep track of reusable containers and pallets. In addition, barcode and RFID placard label holders can help customers manage inventory replenishment by simply scanning the placard barcode or RFID tag. The integration of barcode and RFID technology into the placard increases productivity,  security, and confidence while reducing risk and providing overall cost savings. 

The placard label holder system has been designed with The Kennedy Group’s HOLD & RELEASEtechnology to allow easy application and removal of identification or information labels that get applied to the face of the placard label holders. Placard label holders eliminate the time-consuming task of having to scrape off old labels. 

The Kennedy Group will also be featuring additional warehouse identification solutions including the Kennedy rack placard, warehouse location signs and a complete line of durable nameplates designed for outdoor exposure, high and low temperatures, and other harsh environmental conditions. 

Our comprehensive selection of RFID solutions will also be on display, including:

ACSIS will feature the ACSIS Cloud for Reusable Packaging & Other Returnable Assets (download brochure)

Watch the video

As returnable assets move through the supply chain and are scanned, deviations in contextual data, such as temperature or stability readings, can trigger an automated alert to the manufacturer, customer or partner. Issues can be flagged and resolved immediately, through quarantine for example. The ACSIS cloud also tracks mass movements of returnable assets by allowing the nesting of returnable assets for shipping and receiving.
As returnable assets are received, they are scanned and registered to validate delivery date and time. Location information can include the building, department, floor and shelf. ACSIS fully supports GS1’s Global Location Number (GLN) and Global Returnable Asset Identifier (GRAI) standards.
ACSIS integrates and shares data with internal systems and devices as well as external touchpoints – including contract manufacturers, customers, third-party warehouses, and repair centers – enabling real-time collaboration for better decision-making.

Vantage Plastics, an innovative cut sheet custom thermoformer of plastics located in Standish, Michigan. They have challenged traditional thermoforming design limitations and developed a revolutionary patent-pending new approach to thermoforming design that can increase shipping/storage part volume up to thirty percent (30%) in some cases. The new design solution is called VanStack. It is a smart new packaging solution for material handling applications. In one case it saved a company over $819,000 over its packaging life cycle compared to standard packaging design.

VanStack design used with thermoformed plastics creates a robust, reusable, and recyclable alternative for material handling needs. Since each container can hold more parts the number of containers needed can be reduced. It will be a featured product on display at the RPA pavilion in the Vantage Plastics’ booth at this years’ PACK EXPO.

Booth #8214

CargoTuff’s booth will highlight the company’s reusable dunnage solutions, including:

Level 1 Dunnage Bags

The B-52 Dunnage Air Bag is made of woven polypropylene and is 52”wide, giving the bag that extra expansion needed to fill a larger void up to 30”wide, which is especially useful on single pallet applications. It can be used as a great alternative to drop-down, corrugated void filler. It’s less expensive, incurring lower freight costs per unit and does not take up as much space on the warehouse floor. These bags can be inflated in the void or outside the void and pushed into position. You can watch the video here.

The Dually bag,  is the ultimate replacement for square bags, used in applications with voids larger than 12”. It offers significant cost savings as it is lighter and easier to handle than a square bag, and fills quickly with dual inflation system or traditional single hose. It can be reused on over the road applications (watch videos here).

PAM (Portable Air Master)  our PAM unit is focused on energy saving,  with stronger fiber reinforced housing, a more powerful motor, hose with screw-on connections, two 6600mAh batteries, a charger, and a centered shoulder strap. For videos on PAM watch here and here.
