Crocodile Packaging, UK
Norbord is one of the leading panel suppliers for the pallet and crate packaging industry with its strong, versatile SterlingOSB2 product.
Swindon’s Crocodile Packaging provides one example which illustrates the increased popularity of SterlingOSB2 for this application. Crocodile’s new OSB cases are significantly more cost effective than the plywood packaging previously used and they are also reusable, making them, over the long term, many times more efficient than any other type of packaging. They also provide much more protection than cardboard and at no greater cost.
The SterlingOSB cases can be repaired by replacing individual components, such as the integral pallet base so wastage is minimised. SterlingOSB2 is so easy to handle that assembly and dismantling is also simple. Once unpacked at their destination, the Crocodile cases are dismantled, fumigated and then stacked flat, making it possible to ship back.
Crocodile’s MD Quentin Philip comments “The OSB cases are substantially cheaper than the old plywood ones and we can use them again and again and any worries about ISPM compliance is eliminated.“
