Recently, Steenks Service delivered a brand new Reisopack 2830 to Florca in the Westland area. Florca is a flower export company that exports large quantities of fresh flowers and plants by air freight to more than 60 destinations worldwide daily. To transport the flowers and plants, the flower export company uses special boxes made of sturdy corrugated cardboard which are treated with special protective material. The boxes with the flowers and plants are then placed on pallets per destination in a refrigerated area before they are exported to the country of destination.
Transport of flowers and plants
Florca used plastic film to bind the pallets with boxes. However, this had no positive effect on the special boxes, so the company started looking for another solution. Ultimately, Florca opted for Steenks' Reisopack 2830 strapping machine. Compared to the plastic film, strips of the strapping machine have the advantage that the vacuum cooling progresses faster. Moreover, this is a more sustainable and easier method of binding pallets.
Reisopack 2830 for strapping pallets
The Reisopack 2830 strapping machine is one of the most popular models in Steenks' range for a reason. The semi-automatic strapping machine is easy to use and flexible, so you can move it quickly and easily. The machine is placed next to the pallet to be strapped, after which it is manually used to strap the pallet. Within 54 seconds, a pallet is completely strapped with corner slats.
