Stepac announces improvements to transportation boxes

StePac announces improvements to its transportation boxes that will delight customers! Effective as of May 1, the two new box designs, (S – for bulk packaging solutions) and (B – for retail packaging) are smaller and significantly lighter in weight. The new ergonomics achieved by boxes (S) and (B) enable more boxes to be stacked per pallet which means more Xtend® packaging per pallet than ever before.

"Our new boxes improve the ease and safe handling of Xtend® during the supply chain. In addition, they reduce carbon footprint and save our customers money by increasing the number of packaging units per shipping unit," says Garold Zeltzer, StePac's VP Operations & Supply Chain, "We are proud that this simple change has such a meaningful and positive impact on the environment and on our customers' operations. Initial feedback has been favourable."
