Most popular in The Netherlands: Rental of CBL boxes (fresh boxes)

The most demanded product is The Netherlands is a CBL-box (fresh box). As an official logistics service provider of the Versfust Foundation, we are allowed to rent out this type of reusable and sustainable crates to you from our packaging pool. Features of these crates are:

  • The smooth surface makes the CBL/fresh box crate easy to clean. Ventilation openings ensure that products remain cool, fresh and dry.
  • The CBL/fresh box meets the European Standard Dimensions and is stackable with other variants on the market. This way, you optimize the space in your warehouse, truck or shop and save on transport costs.
  • The crates can easily be transported on one of the other HB RTS load carriers, such as Rollies, Dollies, roll containers and pallets.
  • CBL/Fresh boxes are made of food-standard recycled polyethylene and are therefore more sustainable than cardboard boxes.

Why is a plastic crate better than a cardboard crate?

According to a recent study by the Fraunhofer Institute, reusable crates last 12 years on average. In addition, damaged crates can in many cases be repaired, meaning you can use them for longer. The plastic from crates that can no longer be repaired is used to make new reusable logistics resources.

Another big advantage of plastic crates is that they have a smaller ecological footprint than boxes or crates that are only used once. This is both good for the environment and for the reputation and image of your company. In short, plastic crates are a responsible choice for the environment.
