Polymer Logistics has announced the implementation of a range of its retail-ready packaging (RRP) solutions by award winning “Sewell on the go”.

Sewell, which is a member of thje Top 50 Indies and recently won the Forecourt Trader of the Year Award, will initially deploy Polymer Logistics products at eight of its 12 convenience stores.

The centrepiece of the implementation is the Marketplace crate. This wood-effect plastic container from Polymer Logistics delivers a "farm fresh" look that catches the attention of customers and has been proven by other retailers to boost sales.

Polymer Logistics says Marketplace crates provide an appealing alternative to the standard plastic containers, typically used without compromising any of the hygiene, cost-effectiveness or environmental benefits associated with reusable packaging. They also offer a more long-lasting, sanitary and user-friendly experience than is possible with actual wood containers.

To enhance the appearance of its merchandise, ‘Sewell on the go’ has also chosen Polymer Logistics’ Marketplace Display – an easy-to-install display designed to support Marketplace Crates – and its Ambient and Produce Dynamic Shippers. These “One-Touch” bins minimise replenishment costs and function as both an efficient transport container, as well as an in-store display, featuring a rising floor that improves ergonomics.

For merchandise displayed on forecourts, ‘Sewell on the go’ has opted for plastic pallet solutions as better suited to resist adverse weather conditions. Polymer Logistics’ UDP Half Pallet and Cleanpal have been selected as a long-lasting hygienic solution that cannot be matched by wood for both half and full pallet applications, due to its lightweight, moisture-resistant and easy-to-clean properties.

Adrian Dale, managing director of Polymer Logistics UK, said: “With the appeal of wood and the functionality of plastic, the Marketplace crate has already proven to be highly successful for larger retail formats such as Carrefour and Walmart. We are delighted that ‘Sewell on the go’ recognises the potential of our flexible solutions for enhancing the convenience store shopping experience and boosting sales, while also eliminating the problems associated with wood pallets and containers.”
