Fresh Awards 2018 Business Service Partner

20 June 2018

Congratulations to Polymer Logistics for winning the Fresh Awards 2018 Business Service Partner, sponsored by Airport Perishable Handling.

Polymer Logistics has engineered a solution to the meet the logistical needs of the fresh produce supply chain with pallets made from wholly recyclable materials, having the capacity to use food-grade post-consumer plastic.

The Cleanpal innovation provides safe and hygienic logistics at a reduced cost, with a positive environmental impact, addressing the challenges of space, safety and food hygiene which can be encountered with the historical wooden pallet.

The redevelopment of the pallet provides greater productivity, allowing three times as many empty pallets to be transported on a single lorry due to its nestability, meaning that a third of storage space is required.

“This product uses modern technology to ensure that transit packaging provides more benefits for the fresh produce industry, our customers and the environment,” commented Nigel Jenney, Chief Executive of the Fresh Produce Consortium.

The Fresh Award was presented by Matthew Rye, Director of Airport Perishable Handling in front of an audience of around 500 people at the gala evening, hosted by Shane Richie at The Pavilion at the Tower of London on Tuesday 6 June 2017.
