Transforming Clover’s storage capacity with durable packaging and efficient transport solutions.

the challenge

ALPAL Clover Case Study - What was the challenge?

With increasing volumes, Clover soon realised that they required both an efficient storage system and a durable container for their heavy product. Clover also had an issue with their limited outdoor storage. Once their containers are empty, they store them until they have enough to fill a truck to ship back. The heavy steel containers they were using took up a lot of space and were laborious to move.

the solution

ALPAL Clover Case Study - What was the solution?

When the ALPAL was introduced to them, Clover immediately saw the storage benefits. The ALPAL is capable of stacking up to 8 high when assembled which greatly maximised their warehouse space.

ALPAL also allowed Clover to increase efficiency in their yard by collapsing the ALPAL containers and stacking them neatly, making it easy to transport.

the results

ALPAL Clover Case Study - What was the result?

Increased storage capacity: with ALPAL, Clover could stack 3 high, greatly improving the efficiency of their warehouse space usage. ALPAL’s collapsible feature meant they could be stacked neatly while waiting to be transported.

Reduced transportation: They were able to reduce the number of trucks required to transport the containers by fitting 120 ALPALs in one shipment, compared to 24 steel containers.

what our client said:

"We had a shipment from our suppliers get in an accident causing the truck to roll over. There were 24 units with 24 000 litres of product in them on board. Thinking we had lost a day’s worth of production in lost product we were amazed to find that the ALPAL had protected almost all our product and we were only unable to use two containers." - Cobus Kritzinger, Clover plant manager
