The Pally has won the operational excellence award given by the American Society of Baking through its 2017 Innovation Awards Program.
The Pally is manufactured by the Orbis Corporation, an international manufacturer of reusable packaging and supply chain optimization expert.
The company converts a mobile dolly to a static pallet in one movement.
The award winners were announced at BakingTech 2017 in Chicago, US in February.
The Pally is known for combining the mobility of a dolly with the functionality of a static pallet to enable new and enhanced material handling capabilities.
It allows material to be rolled from the truck directly to the aisle.
This results in greater end-to-end supply chain versatility for increased efficiency, especially for small-format retailers.
The Pally’s durability and long service life allow for frequent product deliveries, and its two footprints — 31.5” x 23.6” and 39.4” x 23.6” — allow for easy maneuverability in tight spaces, such as narrow doorways and aisles.
When combining a racking system and bakery trays, the Pally can transform into an in-aisle shopper-ready endcap or point-of-purchase display, alleviating the need for retail associates to restock products.
