Merchandising trays streamline distribution
September 12, 2022 By Bakers Journal
Orbis Corporation’s new XpressBulk retail-ready merchandising tray aims to simplify distribution and improve labour efficiency in a wide variety of high-velocity food, beverage and consumer packaged goods applications, including fresh and dry goods and packaged liquids.
This shelved display provides a sustainable, efficient replacement for the manual shelf replenishment process by allowing for a fast and easy transfer of product from the truck directly to the store floor.
It has received a 2022 IBIE Best in Baking award in the plant efficiency category for its ability to streamline operations.
The XpressBulk merchandising trays are integrated from the production facility through to the store floor. Merchandise can be packed directly into trays and stacked on a base for easy transportation. Using wheeled dollies, such as the ORBIS Pally, allows for fast loading and unloading for easy replenishment on the retail floor.
Once the system reaches the point of sale, no unpacking or additional touches are needed as consumers shop directly from the system. This not only saves time and reduces touches for improved store labour efficiency but also replaces cardboard-boxed products and eliminates the need for box cutters.
The trays are stackable and nestable for flexibility in vertical environments and return transportation for optimal space savings. They are designed for use in a variety of applications.
You can see the trays at IBIE Baking Expo in Las Vegas, Sept. 17-22.
