Smurfit Kappa: Recyclable Pallet Top

Suitable for a range of sectors including those with stringent hygiene regulations, the TOPPSafe™ from Smurfit Kappa adds a sustainability dimension to the supply chain.

It is made from 100% paper-based Hexacomb material, which is lightweight and strong due to its honeycomb structure.

Several Smurfit Kappa customers were struggling with the weight and inflexibility of traditional wooden, chipboard and plastic pallet tops currently used in supply chains, which often dropped, causing risk of injury. As TOPPSafe is made to be significantly lighter and easier to handle, making it more suitable for manual handling.

The TOPPSafe pallet top offers the benefit of being supplied flat to reduce storage space and the material is fully recyclable.

The company TOPPSafe has the potential to “have a transformative effect on the supply chain. The feedback from the customers who have been using it already has been unanimously positive.”

Smurfit Kappa's SupplySmart service has gathered insights from over 60,000 supply chains that it uses to identify opportunities to make sustainable changes.
