Fish and seafood crates that are suitable for automation

Like all IFCO RPCs, the fish crate is suitable for automation processes. The technical features of the RPC offer several logistical advantages compared to traditional packaging solutions; not only does it enable a higher filling capacity and a higher number of RPCs per pallet, the very stable design also ensures better product protection and longer store life. Not to forget the labor and ecological aspects that RPCs offer. The standardized ergonomic RPC for fish and seafood permits easy handling and therefore better working conditions for logistics personnel, and the environment is protected thanks to less packaging material being wasted, less energy consumption and less decay of merchandise.

The IFCO SmartCycle™ – A system that works perfectly!

From catch to transport to sale and back to the catch. With IFCO’s Caja Pescado not only the catch of fish is sustainable, but also its transport to the point of sale. Let us show you how.

The IFCO SmartCycle™ is a well-established example of a circular economy model that is applied to create a more sustainable supply chain and to maximize its efficiency: products are kept at their highest utility and value at all times. Our Reusable Packaging Containers (RPCs) are shared amongst many parties to maximize use and IFCO manages their pooling process. We were the pioneers to develop an outsourced RPC pooling system for fresh products back in 1992, and we have been constantly developing this business ever since.

4 reasons to choose IFCO RPCs for fish and seafood

Product-specific design

IFCO Fish Crates are designed to carry product throughout the supply chain, from fishing vessel to point of sale. Ideal for fish packed in ice, both before and after processing, they are tough and durable, and able to withstand onboard storage conditions. They are available in three designs, with or without drainage channels; those with the drainage system convey liquids away perfectly.

Efficient handling

Made in three sizes compatible with each other, our Fish Crates have interlocking features that stop the top tray from sliding when stacked.

Clean and hygienic

Designed to meet high hygiene requirements and prevent cross-contamination, IFCO Fish Crates are cleaned in a process that includes washing, disinfecting and thorough drying. Our SmartGuardian technology monitors every step, ensuring each stage meets exacting standards, and independent auditors complete further checks.

More sustainable

IFCO RPCs are reusable, ultimately recyclable and using them for fish and seafood eliminates the environmental harm caused by the recovery of expanded polystyrene (EPS) from disposable packaging. Overall, IFCO RPCs produce up to 60% less CO2and 86% less solid waste; they also use 64% less energy and 80% less water than single-use packaging.
