Loadhog Offers Retailers and Suppliers the Best of Both Worlds
Loadhog, the Sheffield-based supply chain product innovator, has launched the Pally - an ingenious and revolutionary transport and merchandising solution - which realises the dreams of retailers and suppliers alike by combining the essential features of both a pallet and a dolly.
'Pally' Mobile Pallet and Dolly
In pallet form, the Pally - developed and trialled successfully to meet the requirements of one of the UK's largest grocery retailers - provides a stable and immovable 800mm x 600mm base which, with a single pedal push at either end, is transformed into a moveable unit for loads up to 500kg.
Its seamless integration of stability and manoeuvrability makes the unique and patented Pally compatible with supplier production lines, transport, storage, racking and mechanical handling equipment. As a shelf-ready system, the Pally is a labour-saving means of moving and displaying goods in store.
The unique features of the Pally not only eliminate pallet instability and the need for additional lifting equipment, but also create valuable space in busy operating environments and deliver significant time and cost savings by reducing supply chain handling.
Loadhog Pallet Lids
The Pally, which is also designed to nest with standard trays, is stackable when empty and can be used in conjunction with the Loadhog Lid system - the award-winning 'green' method of securing a load to the Pally. The Loadhog Lids' two integrated and retractable straps replace stretch wrapping and banding to bring further savings in labour and single-use packaging costs.
Rotherham-based PMS Diecasting has already recognised the numerous benefits of the Pally internally and successfully rolled out the system to a major supplier.
Allan Follows, PMS general manager, said: "The Pally is proving extremely useful within our operation. I am beginning to wonder how we managed without it! Wooden pallets, pump trucks and stretch wrap all seem rather crude now."
