Crate - EUO6440

Our innovative foldable EUO6440 crate is a world-leading crate model, coming in at a 600mm x 400mm x 400mm size in a FOLDABLE design configuration.

It is ideal for many applications from fresh food produce such as tomato handling to merchandised branded product handling in the fashion and retail sector.

It is ideal for the inter-department movement and storage and warehousing of small packages in the warehousing sector.

It is designed to improve handling efficiency, save costs and reduce packaging waste in line with the trend from the global logistic packaging industry.

The EUO6440 has a 70 Litres (18.5 US Gals) capacity and a product reliability and high quality that is well proved in many hundreds of thousands of installations/uses around the world.

You can stack multiple EUO6440 crates onto our plastic pallet (1200 x 1000mm footprint) and add a plastic lid on top of the stack (as shown), thus expanding load capacity in an easy, inexpensive and efficient way.

Bespoke dunnages (say 2.2m tall with multiple EUO6440 crate stacks) can reduce the QC risk and loss of parts during transportation, providing a foundation for integrated management.

The EUO6440 crates nest together (like inter-locking bricks) and are extremely sturdy for road/rail/sea transport.
