Ahhhhh…Nowadays is so easy and fast to receive and ship goods. In old times customers needed to sit and wait days, months to receive a commodity, which today takes up to one day to arrive.

Well, it happens that we are at the moment paying a high price for it.
As the globalization makes easy to send goods around the world and everything is happening so fast, and people are so hurry, (and you are now reading this really hurry)…

​…the air cargo with its practicality, price, and fast delivery became essencial BUT…
(here comes the but)

…this choice has an absurd and severe influence on the CO2 emitted for the transportation of these goods.
As the time pass, the industry that once did not have a high percentage on the greenhouse gas emission, today is one of the most quickly-growing sources of the same gas. The air cargo industry.

The heavy packaging of the air cargo industry

Air cargo is traditionally transported in airplanes on big metal trays size 2000-3000 mm x up to 2000-3000 mm.
On top of the tray is traditionally a wooden construction that has been used to stabilize the final pallets.
Huge + Heavy = more fuel consumption!

Wooden to Carton Pallet

The solution that makes the difference!

In order to change this situation, to reduce the greenhouse gas emission, it is necessary to observe
​ how the goods are being transported.

​This huge wooden construction can be replaced with PallRuns® and in fact, we have now started to make tests with several Cargo handling companies, all global forwarders in the Air Cargo business.

This environmentally friendly pallet runner needs no treatment, are​ 100% recyclable and it has a strong solid board structure but are light in weight – huge savings in air freight!
