New Modeling Capabilities Featured in Esko’s Cape Pack and Cape Truckfill Software Demonstrate Maximized Payloads and Improved Transportation Efficiencies Using Green Ox Pallets
Centennial, CO – Esko, a global supplier of integrated solutions for packaging and the developer of Cape Pack Palletization Software, is featuring several Green Ox® Pallet Technology designs in its Cape Pack and Cape Truckfill software to help thousands of leading global companies evaluate innovative options for maximizing truck space utilization.
Green Ox corrugated pallets are unique in the global market. Globally produced and configured at the point of use, the pallets offer a viable lightweight alternative to wood that can scale across the footprint of multi-national manufacturers and their suppliers. As presented in Cape Pack, one of Green Ox’s most transformational features is dimension customization, which allows clients to increase the amount of truck bed space used by 5-30%. Together, Esko and Green Ox Pallet Technology are paving the way for global manufacturers to improve space utilization, cut transportation costs, and reduce their carbon footprint.
“Green Ox pallets can, quite literally, help reduce the number of trucks needed to transport the same amount of product, which benefits our clients and the planet. Esko is thrilled that Cape Pack is the first transport software in the world that enables clients to evaluate this innovative pallet technology,” said Brad Leonard, Global Business Development for Cape and Esko.
“Esko and Cape Pack have long served as visionary leaders in truck modeling and efficiency,” said Adam Pener, President of Green Ox Pallet Technology. “As the global precedent set by IKEA® demonstrates, in the future all truck beds will maximize area and volume, thereby reducing the number of trucks on our roads. Green Ox is honored to be aligned with Esko -- a company that understands the importance of giving their clients the next-generation tools necessary to drive innovation, profitability, and significantly reduce CO2 emissions.”
In addition to the Green Ox Standard 48x40 pallet, Cape Pack Software v2.15, released last year, introduces to the market Green Ox’s space-maximizing: “Walk-In Cooler” (40x32), “Mini-Square” (32x32), “Bike” (61x36), “U.S. Square” (46x46) and “Euro” (1 meter x 1 meter) pallets.
