Randall Manufacturing recently custom-manufactured insulated pallet covers for the transport of more than 10,000 holiday poinsettias for Koehler & Dramm.

Koehler & Dramm is a wholesale floral distributor serving Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, and North and South Dakota.  In these areas where temperatures can drop below zero during transit, Koehler & Dramm was seeking an eco-friendly, insulated packaging solution to protect against temperature-induced product loss.

Randall provided customized insulated pallet covers to fit snugly over the poinsettia shipping cart. Use of industrial Velcro along the four sides allowed for the cover to be adjusted to cart dimensions and form a tight seal, ensuring minimal temperature fluctuations. The insulated pallet covers have benefited Koehler & Dramm’s operations in many ways including:

•Greater profitability with zero product loss, to date.

•Decreased carbon footprint and landfill waste by reusing insulated pallet covers each season.

•Less labor-intensive packaging and increased employee productivity.

The customer expressed its satisfaction with the quality of Randall’s insulated pallet covers, their ease of use and the effective temperature control.

Kristine Grudis, warehouse sales manager at Randall, said, “This was a hugely rewarding project.  Working with Koehler & Dramm to create a zero-loss effort with the shipment of their poinsettias and create an eco-friendly, reusable insulated pallet cover has demonstrated Randall’s ability to work with customers to individually meet their challenges with effective solutions.”
