Extra transfer codes for cardboard plant trays01 December 2020
The use of cardboard plant trays is increasing. And with it, there is more demand from the market for transfer codes for solid cardboard and corrugated cardboard plant trays. This is the reason that we are introducing eight new transfer codes, as of Tuesday 1 December 2020. Recent environmental impact research has shown that one-use cardboard trays are more sustainable than the one-use plastic plant trays.
We are introducing the extra transfer codes to support the use of more sustainable packaging and to encourage it. In addition, these specific transfer codes will provide more information than the standard transfer codes from the 800-series, which, among others exporters use for the trolley configuration systems.

Which plant tray is the most sustainable?
Nowadays, there's a lot to choose from: reusable, single-use plastic, cardboard... What is the environmental impact of these types of packaging? Recent independent research (life cycle analysis) clearly shows that the reusable tray is the most sustainable solution and has the least impact on the environment. Single-use cardboard plant trays score better than single-use plastic trays.
The graph below shows the results by country. The final score is the total score from all environmental aspects. The most important environmental themes, climate change and water consumption, are shown separately.
