It’s one of the world’s favourite food exports and it’s important to keep the whisky flowing at all times. As the US writer, Mark Twain said: “Too much of anything is bad, but too much good whisky is barely enough.” That’s why The Edrington Group, the international premium spirits company, approached Goplasticpallets.com when it needed help with its logistics in 2012 – and the solution is still working five years later.

The success of Edrington’s installation is further proof why people should: Leave the wood. Go plastic – which is the theme of Goplasticpallets.com’s new marketing campaign.

Logistics Parner

As Chris Hendry, Procurement Manager at Edrington, explains: “We can package and ship approximately 5 million cases of whisky a year at this site that’s why it’s essential we work with the very best logistics partners. The pallets and solution we were supplied by Goplasticpallets have been fantastic and offer so many improvements over wood, durability being just one of the benefits. We’re over the moon with their performance.”

Jim Hardisty, Managing Director of Goplasticpallets.com, adds: “We offer in excess of 155 different pallets and pallet boxes – the country’s largest selection, with many items available direct from stock – and we work in all sectors from manufacturing to food and drink production. We’re not at all surprised that the solution we provided to Edrington is still working and still proving it’s worth some five years later,  and we’re sure the solution will still be performing to its utmost in another five years’ time.”

Jim Hardisty, Managing Director of Goplasticpallets.com.

Durable and Cost-effective Solution

Goplasticpallets.com recommended a switch from wooden to plastic pallets for a durable and cost-effective solution capable of withstanding the tough manufacturing environment, which involves a high level of automation – essential since each pallet can carry £60,000 worth of spirits.

Edrington ordered 1,400 of the company’s APB 1210 Pool Perforated 5R pallets in black. It also requested the removal of the lips to prevent damaging the cases and inner gift cartons, which often overhang the edge of the pallets. Anti-slip strips were added as a necessity to protect the fragile cargo, from the bottling line to the container.

Edrington also requested that Goplasticpallets.com sequentially number each of the 1,400 pallets for internal auditing purposes and brand ‘TEG’ (The Edrington Group) for easy in-house identification.
