Large Volume Packaging Made Simple
Mondi pak-(k)it® – Fast and safe handling of solid volume packaging
Vienna, May 2014 – At the upcoming Interpack fair, Mondi Wellpappe Ansbach GmbH is showcasing its latest innovation in large volume packaging, pak-(k)it. The economic, corrugated container alternative for conventional secondary packaging of large volume shipments features a ready-to-use, 3-in-1 design with even more convenient and simplified handling from storage to packing to dispatch.
The 3-in-1 pak-(k)it kit arrives as one, flat package comprising of a container fully connected to a wooden pallet and covered by the lid. An integrated folding sleeve adds stability and the overall construction can withstand a stacking weight of up to 900 kilograms. With the convenient and simplified handling design, the entire container can be collected from the warehouse by the forklift driver in one go, and in a matter of seconds it only takes one person to erect the container with ease - a key benefit with packaging unit volumes between 0,4 m3 to 5 m3.
“We are very excited to showcase the pak-(k)it transport and storage container at this year’s Interpack,” says Georg Koller, Product & Project Manager, Mondi Wellpappe Ansbach GmbH. “The clever system not only saves storage space and time, but also stands out for its handling and shipping performance. Our credo “Ansbach-perfect” reflects our continuous strive to improve solutions and allowed us to add pak-(k)it as a top product to our heavy duty packaging range, it offers an additional benefit in every single step of the supply chain process.”
Mondi’s pak-(k)it is suitable for a variety of industries looking for a durable, practical and efficient way to ship their items in a transport container. It has become widely accepted by notable customers in the automotive and its supplying industries as well as the metalworking industry because the packaging design meets the tough requirements of these high performing clients and worldwide shipping standards.
The pak-(k)it container is also designed for overseas export packaging featuring wet strength glue. One key advantage in logistics compared to wooden boxes or metal crates is that the pak-(k)it container is disposable without the need for a costly, risky and time-consuming return process of small containers.
Mondi’s pak-(k)it is available in five standard sizes and can also be customized to individual packaging sizes, product or transportation requirements, which also includes the possibility to include additional material such as foils, foams or die-cuts.
