MOBILITY NETWORKS CONTINUES TO WORK WITH SUPPLIERS TO REDUCE ITS ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT WITH REVOLUTIONARY PACKAGING SYSTEM

Shipping products from one of its factories, PLS in the UK, to customers all over the world, Mobility Networks is determined to continue reducing its environmental impact, by using a more sustainable and revolutionary packaging process.

The new, lightweight, one hundred per cent recyclable packaging system used by Mobility Networks.

Used as an alternative to wood (26kg average weight) and plastic (average weight of 30kg), the new purpose-built cardboard pallets and boxes are engineered with honeycomb technology and weigh as little as 6.5kg!

This new method of packaging allows us to significantly reduce fuel consumption and carbon emissions with one hundred per cent recyclable cardboard materials.

Shipping products abroad has also become effortless as the new packaging is exempt from ISPM 15, an international standard developed by the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) to address the need to treat wood materials of a thickness greater than 6mm, used to ship products between countries.

Other benefits include better manual handling due to its minimal weight and the substantial reduction of workplace injury as there are no nails or splinters on these innovative boxes and pallets.

The initiative of finding a cutting-edge packaging alternative to traditional methods is part of Mobility Networks’ Lean System of continuous improvement in all pre-and post manufacturing process, aligned with the brand values of Agility, Expertise, Leadership and Cost-efficiency.
