THE CARGOLITE   CONCEPT

The Cargolite® packaging for fresh cut flowers is specially designed 

to be lighter than any other carton used for export and to give better protection to the flowers during transit.

The Cargolite® carton concept is based on​ five simple principles:

principle 1:

REMOVE THE LOAD FROM THE CARTON WALLS

  • Each Cargolite carton is equipped with two polypropylene frames.

  • Each frame consists of two vertical columns connected to each other with upper and lower laterals.

  • The frames divert the weight of the flowers away from the carton's walls and support each carton separately.

  • The frame is also used to ergonomically hold the carton in a horizontal position.

With the Cargolite system,
the flowers in the bottom boxes do not support the weight of the flowers on top

principle 2:
REDUCE THE CARTON WEIGHT​​

  • With the weight diverted away from the carton's walls to the plastic frames, it is no longer necessary to use heavy five ply boards. A much lighter 3 ply board is enough.

  • With the frames holding the cartons from collapsing, less packaging materials (such as SFKs) are required to protect the flowers.
    As a result , the weight of the packaging materials is reduced up to 2 kg per box.

With the Cargolite system,
you PAY LESS ON AIR FREIGHT!

principle 3:

INCREASE THE PACK RATE

With Cargolite System, it is not necessary to protect each bunch separately with single face kraft (SFK).

In the space vacated by the voluminous SFK, more flowers can be packed in the Cargolite carton.

Depending on varieties and head sizes,  Cargolite System can pack more stems than regular boxes.​

It is a real 'game changer' for the industry.  The concept enables us to save on air freight costs, less crushing of boxes and therefore an improved quality of the product when arriving at destination."

principle 4:

built in cooling

The frames of the Cargolite system create a space between the cartons which allows for the circulation of cold air between the boxes.

Cargolite cartons are uniformly cooled even at the core of the air pallet.

principle 5:

Stackability

  • Each frame has two projections on the upper lateral and two cavities on the bottom lateral side. The projections of one frame fit into the cavities of the frame above it.

  • As a result, the cartons can be stacked one on top of another and form solid columns of Cargolite.

Air pallets of Cargolite  cartons are very stable and arrive at destination without damage.​
