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.

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.
