Load carriers come in different shapes and sizes. It could be that you work with various different crates within your company. CBL-crates, E2-crates and fish crates. They all need to be cleaned properly. Is that possible?
Often it is possible to clean different types of crates in a standard crate washer. With that, it is important that the sides with which they are put into the washer are reasonably uniform. So that the different types of crates run smoothly over the washer's guides. It is therefore important that this side has approximately the same width for all the crates, and that they do not differ too much in their design (the presence of indentations or cut outs).
Number of crates
Do you have different types of crates? Then check how many you have of each type. For example do you have 400 crates of type A , 600 crates of type B and 40 crates of type C? And is type C also quite different from crate A and crate B in terms of dimensions and design? Then you could consider removing this type of crate from your business. Do you still really need these crates for a specific product? Then you could also choose to wash them manually or purchase a so-called utensil washer for this, that only needs a limited investment.
Tip: Do you have various types of crates and is it possible to switch over to one type? Sell your excess crates as second hand. This often produces a fair amount that you can use for the investment in a uniform selection of crates.
