Conceptainer – specialists in the design and local manufacture of labelling, packaging, transport and storage solutions – has developed solutions to protect product integrity and for efficient handling, stacking and storage. Conceptainer’s extensive range of products includes Tellap pallet-free bulk bags, collapsible thrift bins, stillage boxes, label holders, Polypropylene repair bag tape and anti-static Polypropylene corrugated board.
“These flexible systems are suitable for customers in diverse industries, who either need to ship produce great distances or deliver locally. In the food sector – including the nut industry – it is critical that foodstuff remains fresh and is easy to identify and locate down the supply chain. All goods must be correctly stored and securely packaged for safe transporting,” explains Ken Mouritzen, director, Conceptainer. “TELLAP pallet-free bulk bags are a dependable alternative to a normal bulk bag and pallet and are ideally suited to specific requirements in the safe handling of all food commodities, including nuts.
“This patented system has two plastic sleeves integrated into the base of the bulk bag. A standard forklift simply raises the TELLAP from the base. There is no need for a wooden pallet, no need for fumigation and no need for more than a single operator to do the job. We all know there are many issues associated with wooden pallets – including weight, packaging damage and contamination from splinters, nails and mould. A regular wooden pallet can weigh up to 23 kg while a TELLAP system weighs less than 2.3 kg, which means users are not transporting dead weight, just product.
“With the TELLAP system, users have the assurance of efficient, secure and hygienic packaging, storage and transportation. And most importantly, nuts stay fresh and are safely handled. “This efficient packaging system uses the space between the sleeves to increase bag volume by approximately 10%. This means users are able to transport more product at no additional cost, while reducing the number of bags, trucks and containers by about 10%. These are substantial savings for any business.”
From the time of delivery, users appreciate greater efficiencies and lower operational costs. TELLAP bags offer safety, stability and improved space utilisation in warehousing, containers, rail cars and trucks. They can be stacked securely two high in a container or four high in a warehouse and are loaded and unloaded by one forklift operator.
These environmentally-sustainable pallet-free bags are manufactured from 100% polypropylene. They are recycled or re-used and there is no packaging waste or dumping in landfill. The risk of splinters, contamination or expensive product-loss associated with wooden pallets are a thing of the past. What’s also important, is TELLAP bags can be customised by Conceptainer, to exact requirements. Options include spouts, liners, baffles and printing. Apart from the efficient, secure and hygienic packaging, storage and transportation of nuts, the TELLAP pallet-free bulk bag system handles other dry, loose and bulk products, including resins, pharmaceuticals and minerals.
