When the Hyksos invaded Lower Egypt they brought with them new technology – the chariot. An effective mode of transportation and war tool, the Egyptians altered the original design so that the chariots could be collapsed and carried across difficult terrain when needed.
Whilst not quite on par with ancient warfare strategies, the concept of creating flexible structures to transport goods is still very current. Let’s take a look at ways modern-day industries can benefit from collapsible crate designs.
Most pallets don’t fold down after being constructed. With roughly two billion wooden pallets used in the U.S alone, that can not only lead to space capacity issues but time inefficiencies as transporting and coordinating a specific pallet of goods can be rather difficult.
On top of the obvious space problem, operations may struggle to find crates adequately resistant to external influences, let alone sustainable in production or use. The diseconomies of inflexible pallets are therefore easily seen.
Luckily, Eco Pallets is one of the only companies offering a solution to these issues.
