Clip-Lok returnable boxes for transport of automotive windshields
Clip-Lok SimPak® has become a proven partner for the transport of heavy glass loads for the automotive industry.
The transport of large glass windshields provides a unique packaging challenge for truck, automobile and glass manufacturers. Because of the size, weight and fragility of the cargo, an extremely robust box and specially-designed dunnage are required. Furthermore, because the windshields are often a part of the Lean manufacturing process, they must be easily and ergonomically accessible directly from the box.
Clip-Lok has mastered this challenge and Clip-Lok boxes are now a common sight on automobile assembly lines. As an extra plus, Clip-Lok boxes are flat-packable and reusable.
Through the use of innovative 3D design technology, the engineers at Clip-Lok design reusable plywood boxes that provide high-density packing while fully protecting each windshield from damage and dust.
The collapsible Clip-Lok 2P box features a removable front panel and drop down ramp for easy access to the windshields on the assembly line. When the box is emptied, it can be folded down into a very compact package, less than a third of the original box size, and shipped back for reuse.
Clip-Lok boxes are tested and proven to hold up under the impact, pressure and vibration of normal transport. In fact, this robust box will often remain in the logistics cycle for over one hundred transports. In addition to this, Clip-Lok is committed to environmental protection and designs and manufactures boxes only from environmental-friendly certified wood. This, together with customized loading plans and flat-packed returns, significantly reduces the costs and pollution associated with transportation.
Clip-Lok SimPak cost-saving, reusable packaging for automobile windshields is good example of the advanced technology and environmental purpose which are at the core of the Clip-Lok quality commitment.
