Roll n’ Pall smart pallet roll-out

Polymer Logistics has introduced Roll n’ Pall, a ‘smart pallet’ said to serve as both a pallet and a heavy duty dolly to improve productivity throughout the supply chain and increase in-store product availability.

The company, a global provider of retail-ready packaging (RRP) solutions, says its new all-in-one pallet and dolly solution facilitates safe and easy in-store handling.

Roll n’ Pall features a four-wheeled base that can be easily manoeuvred on the retail floor and locked into the sales fixture thanks to its simple foot-activated mechanism.

The lock can then be released in the same way.

Replacing the use of materials handling equipment, Roll n’ Pall is also said to significantly reduce the time and cost of replenishment, making it beneficial for both suppliers and retailers.

“The main advantage of having two products in one is the ability to deliver from the production line, via DC, straight to the retail floor, which keeps handling and replenishment costs to a minimum,” says Adrian Dale, Polymer Logistics managing director UK.

“Empty pallets can subsequently be replaced with full ones, which maximises product availability and noticeably boosts sales,” he says.

Dale add that in trials, retailers have “more than halved their replenishment times” compared to traditional shelf merchandising.
This, he says, not only reduces costs but also frees up staff to assist customers, thereby “improving the overall shopping experience”.
