Xpress Bulk

Orbis’ showroom and live demos will showcase a variety of reusable packaging solutions, services and programs, including:

• NEW 40x48 Odyssey pallet
The 40 x 48 Odyssey pallet provides stability with unique design features, including optional steel reinforcements and molded-in frictional elements. These elements minimize load shifting, do not damage cases or product, and prevent pallet slippage off fork equipment. While designed to support loads of 2,800+ pounds, the Odyssey pallet is built to be easily moved manually, while improving product and associate safety through frictional elements.  

• XpressBulk for bulk merchandising
The XpressBulk (shown) is a retail-ready delivery system that transports high-velocity goods, like milk, from the delivery truck to the retail cooler with only one touchpoint. It’s comprised of a dolly, removable handle and four plastic contoured trays. The trays collapse into one another for a snug fit, and the dollies can be stored on top of each other for space optimization — a 5:1 storage ratio over Bossy carts.

• Small-format pallet with totes
Small-scale brick-and-mortar stores need smaller-format pallets that can easily fit through tight spaces, such as doorways and aisles. Orbis’ small-format pallets are designed for these delivery and movement needs, enabling vertically efficient unit loads, optimizing delivery truck space and speeding up merchandising. These pallets are compatible with a variety of ORBIS plastic totes.

• PlastiCorr reusable plastic corrugated box
PlastiCorr is a direct replacement for corrugated fiber boxes with identical functionality and enhanced features. This sustainable solution works seamlessly with existing automated packaging lines and is ideal for food, beverage and CPG goods applications. Its patented design allows the box’s flaps to fold and straighten like new every time, allowing PlastiCorr to be reused multiple times with no change to pack count or pallet configurations. 

• OpteBulk
The OpteBulk is comprised of a pallet, sleeve and top cap to keep product loads safe and secure. It is an economical collapsible bulk container for lighter-weight loads. The sleeves can be fabricated from plastic corrugated materials with custom features designed to meet a variety of applications. This product design allows for maximum cube utilization.

• 48x45HDMP BulkPak
The 4845 HDMP container is designed and constructed to efficiently move, store and ship products. With weight capacities from 1,500-2,000 lb, it’s ideal for all types of product loads. This container is available in multiple heights and is offered in a variety of medium-duty and heavy-duty styles to meet many application needs. Its collapsibility offers a favorable return ratio which equals fewer trips. Additional products for the industrial supply chain will also be on hand, including the AdjustaPak sliding dunnage system, ORBIShield dunnage, Orbis Metal Racks and StakPak totes for part shipments.
