Collapsible Crates For Effortless Delivery And Storage

Collapsible crates are the solution for a range of delivery options

The pandemic has changed the way NZ businesses are operating. It’s expected the changes will last beyond the current crisis, as people expect delivery of household goods and higher standards of care from businesses.

To help you deliver your business goods easily, our collapsible crates are perfect. In a range of sizes, there’s one for every task.

Convenient and easy

Our crates are designed for optimal efficiency, with easy to hold handles so you can carry items easily. There is a space for labels, so you can store goods and easily access just what you need without having to unpack every crate. The collapsing mechanism is super simple, with no hooks or clips—just push the ends down and the sides automatically fold in flat.

Space efficient

These crates stack when full, which saves space when in transit or being used to store goods. This helps to reduce shipping costs, and also avoids product damage.

They collapse when empty, to save on storage space in a warehouse, in a kitchen, in the transit van- where-ever you use them.

Hard wearing and long-lasting

The plastic is made from food-grade polypropylene. This means these crates are safe for transporting of food and food products. The plastic itself is durable and hardwearing, able to deal with being stored outside in a yard. It also takes the knocks that happen during loading, unloading and transit.

These crates are better than timber crates in many ways. There are no nails, splinters or mould to worry about. They are lighter and therefore easier to carry and move and are compatible with forklifts and conveyor belts.

Keep your produce in immaculate condition

Finally, these crates keep your products safe. Whether it’s delicate fruit like strawberries or ripe avocadoes, crates ensure they aren’t damaged – unlike boxes, which can be dented, can collapse, or can get wet and disintegrate.

And when they get dirty, these crates are easy to clean; you can easily hose or wash them down. They can be treated with a number of different cleaning solutions, which help to keep your crates clean, compliant with health and safety laws, and keeps the quality of your produce high.

What are collapsible crates used for?

These vented crates are used in a wide variety of industries and businesses. Fruit and vegetables are one common use, not only for transporting goods but also for storage and display when they are at the store or market. They are the perfect size and shape for almost every imaginable type of produce.

The dairy industry use vented crates because the plastic functions perfectly in fridges and freezers. Unlike timber, which swell and warp, the plastic retains its shape and form. The plastic can also be sanitised and washed easily, part of the strict food safety standards around dairy.

Bakeries use vented crates to ensure their goods don’t get squashed or damaged in transit. Also, because often breads etc are packed when still warm, the vents allow steam to be diffused and stop the product from getting soggy.

Commercial kitchen use vented crates for all the reasons above. To meet strict food safety standards, to allow fridge-freezer-transport with no warping or damage, and simply due to the ease of use.
