British manufacturer S&S Plastics has launched Plastics Insert Tubs to improve fuel efficiency, warehousing and supply chain operations.

The S&S Plastics Insert Tub is a 100% recycled polypropylene tote insert which creates a fully configurable solution inside storage and stack nester totes. This enables up to eight separate stock keeping units (SKUs) to go in a single tote, increasing efficiency by up to 800%.

Additionally, the integrated barcode tracking is preconfigured, to speed up service times. The product is designed to solve the traditional problem in logistics of totes being predominantly empty on their travels.

Nick Bortone, managing director of S&S Plastics, said, “Every day we are in contact with logistics and automation firms as part of our normal business routine, and so often we’d hear about issues with inefficiency and cross-contamination. We resolved to sort out the problem ourselves. The S&S Plastics Insert Tub was the result of using those frustrations and our plastics molding experience to come up with something innovative and ground-breaking.”

Joe Joyce, S&S Plastics business development manager, added, “As we were going through the design process, we realized that actually not only are we increasing the efficiency of a logistics process but ultimately we are really bringing some environmental benefits as well, the S&S Plastics Insert Tub now ensures that factory operations are more efficient, and trucks are able to carry far more product and stop shipping air.”
