We've got a great lineup waiting for you at the Reusable Packaging Pavilion at Pack Expo taking place September 23-25 in Las Vegas. 35 exhibitors of reusable transport packaging products and related services and the Reusable Packaging Learning Center, where you can learn about the latest sustainable packaging trends and supply chain solutions from industry experts on Monday and Tuesday from 11am – 3pm.

Here’s even more of what the RPA Pavilion has to offer:

PTM (Booth # 7912) is looking for constant improvement. Starting from the Ultra Pallet, our first generation of pallets we evolved to the Stamina Pallet 48”x40”. It has strategic features for the operation; it is made with Stamina blocks, this design increase resistance for forklift impacts. With aluminum inserts to increase deflection resistance and weighs less than 50 pounds, offers greater load capacity and versatility in the operation. These pallets are designed for material handling for traditional or highly automatized supply chain.

Stamina Pallet Features:

  • Top deck anti slip pads inserted with double injection.
  • Unique structural block design for impact endurance
  • Plastic parts joined by hotplate welding to provide exceptional rigidity
  • Bottom deck with optional metal reinforcement
  • Encapsulated metal reinforcement to prevent rust
  • Smooth surface design to facilitate cleaning

With this pallet durability, PTM reinforces the commitment to the environment reducing the amount of carbon emissions generated by the constant use of wooden pallets.

InterCrate (Booth # 8213) is a family owned company focused on constructing rigid and collapsible containers for fresh produce and food industries. We build InterCrate containers for performance. With three-generations of plastic container design and production expertise, we specialize in problem solving to improve process efficiency. Our innovative containers are designed to protect produce, increase efficiency in the supply chain and deliver quality goods to the end user. Using the latest in technology, we make sure that your produce is delivered fresh from the farm.

Our InterCrate 4.5 container has been used primarily as a harvest container in the production of blueberries.  The design of this container’s ventilation pattern provides rapid cooling once out of the field and into cold storage rooms.  The faster that you can cool freshly picked blueberries, the longer the shelf life of that fruit will be.

Our InterCrate FreshTote container was developed with a leading salad grower/packer and is used in salad harvest and processing operations.  The FreshTote is simply the toughest, most break resistant harvest tote available, and comes with our proprietary metal detection additive which allows plastic debris to be detected in fresh cut operations.
