CLD Puts Companies on Track Towards a More Efficient Supply Chain

CONTRALOAD is the Pan-European market leader in plastic pallet pooling. This includes the rental and management of plastic pallets, IBCs and drums for the B2B market (mainly the food industry). CLD also offers support services such as transport, cleaning and pallet repair of different load carriers. In addition, the group recently developed a number of new activities, such as specialized load carrier solutions for specific market applications ranging from the automotive industry to the packaging industry and even into high care areas. CLD offers a free consultancy to put companies on track towards a more efficient supply chain through load carrier optimization and tailored pooling solutions.

Q -Is CLD also involved in the IBC business?

A -Yes and it is a growing business for us. Beside pallet solutions, we also provide a range of box-solutions for a number of different industries. We have BOP- (Box on Pallet) solutions for lightweight products such as packaging, preforms, caps and closures as well as heavier bins (Magnums) for customer products ranging from packaged foods, frozen products and even car parts and we have collapsible IBCs (Arca Combo) for liquid products in the food industry such as oils, fruit juices & preparations, sauces, creams and such.

Q – Are they all the same size?

A – No, we have light and heavy solutions and they vary from 600x800mm to 1140x1140mm. If a customer would need an odd-sized bin, we would also investigate the possibilities and invest in that specific bin, if the application makes sense. It is the basis of our philosophy to adapt our offer to the real needs of our customer.

Contraload1April2016CompressedTo give you an idea, we have 210 litre conical drums which are nestable, an enormous space-saver compared to the standard steel drums whereby the use of a liner is not always necessary anymore because of our high cleaning standards. The drums are mostly used for fruit preparations, frozen products and in the beverage industry. Our Arca Combo is a 1050 litre bag-in-box solution, available with a bottom discharge valve for aseptic filling and emptying and for non-aseptic applications as well.  We also have this bin without a bottom discharge opening for the customers that prefer to empty the bin from the top like the tomato paste users. Because the Combo is collapsible, it is a space-saver and an economically interesting alternative to stainless steel tanks. Our Combo-bin is available with 3 or 5 runners at the bottom and includes a drop-door for easier filling when needed.  Another special product is our lightweight foldable Orca, a 1000 litre bag in bag solution that CLD helped to design.  This bag is ideal for products that need to be heated before discharging, like butter-oil in the chocolate industry, but it can also be used in many other industries and for long distance transport where the filling of 20ft and 40ft containers needs to be optimized and packaging weight and waste reduction are essential.

Contraload3April2016Q – Does CLD also provides a complete bag in box solution?

A- Certainly, because we are a one stop solution shop! Together with our liner and valve partners we have decades of liquid liner experience. We can provide you with liners for every IBC we have and for 95% of the liquids on the market. Steamable valves, Free flow gusset technology, high barrier foils, flex-crack proof liners, you name it, we have it and at a very competitive price!

Q- Anything new on the horizon?

A -YES, many things, but coming into the market soon are our brand new top decks, 800x1200mm and 1000x1200mm, made from plastic and stainless steel. This product is the ultimate solution for many packaging companies struggling with wooden top decks. No more nails, wood chips, dangerous strapping, etc. We have a returnable strong solution that we will pool alongside our pallets, but can be bought as well.
