Maximus®1212 changes the rules for transport of apples and pears

Ludo Gielen, Leopoldsburg, 9/11/2016

Specially designed for the fruit and vegetables supply chain, a truly unique big box has been developed by Schoeller Allibert: The Maximus®1212. Thanks to its one-of-a-kind base design featuring four pockets, apples and pears significantly experience less dents and bruises than within traditional pallet containers, allowing growers to get more high quality fruits out of each container. This remarkable design plays the role of a shell by preventing the fruits from rolling around during transport. From orchards to road transport, the result is significant, with much less damaged or bruised apples and pears than with flat base boxes, according to an independent competitive test conducted by the Flemish Centre for Horticultural Products in Belgium. The unique pocket and curved walls design provides the best internal volume on the market (836L) to the Maximus®1212, offering up to +35L than most 1200×1200 containers. Customers get the maximum storage and vehicle fill possible, reducing transport cost & environmental impact.
