Picker storage crates from Exporta are one of our most versatile options when it comes to storage crates. Here at Exporta Global, we have crates of all shapes and sizes, many of which fit the standard Euro footprint size – which means they are fully compatible with our other Euro products. Every one of Exporta’s crates are made to the highest standard which makes them highly durable and high quality. Our crates are all checked on a regular basis to ensure that they have been manufactured to the highest standard.
If as a business you wish to make use of storage crates by stacking or nesting them on top of one another then our picker crates are perfect for you. Storage crates are by their very nature for the storage of goods – once items are stored in our picker crates they can become stackable plastic crates or nestable plastic storage crates. This means that once these storage crates are loaded they can either be stacked or nested on top of one another to create an effective storage solution for your workplace. The handles used in Exporta’s picker storage crates make them extremely easy to pick up – even when they are stacked!
Typically for the storage and movement of goods cardboard would be used. This was simply because it was so cheap. In recent times we have seen a massive movement towards storage crates as an alternative. Storage crates provide a long lasting and economical solution when looking at the storage and movement of goods. Cardboard can often only be used once and in doing so goods can become easily damaged due to the lack of robustness in form. Cardboard is easily affected by the weather also – especially rain; in using plastic storage crates you are protected against the elements as they don’t disintegrate over a short period of time. If your business is seeking a storage solution which is built to last, then look no further than Exporta’s crates.
All of Exporta’s crates come ready assembled – no need for sellotape or having to take time to build up your boxes. Our storage crates are available for next day delivery when ordered before 3pm so you can find plastic crates for sale on our website that will be with you as soon as tomorrow.
The V-Crates, picker crates or field crates as they are sometimes known, are an extremely unique and versatile form of stackable plastic crates or nestable plastic crates. They have been supremely designed to allow maximum airflow making this strong storage crate ideal for light industrial and food environments. Although this crate is hugely popular amongst food producers it can also be seen in a variety of situations, including transport or for the storage of fabrics, other plastics etc.
Due to the unique design features of these ventilated crates they are ideal for the food industry. More often than not goods such as fresh fruit and vegetables need the air to pass through them whilst they are being stored. These ventilated plastic crates allow exactly that – they allow air to pass and avoid the growth of bacteria. This is why our picker storage crates are majorly found in environments which grow or supply food.
Another reason which makes these storage crates ideal for the food services industry is the fact that they are stackable plastic crates. This means that a baker could utilise the space they have available by stacking the crates on top of one another without the goods inside becoming damaged – which is paramount for any business. They are also extremely easy to clean and disinfect which is ideal for any business which must maintain a high standard of hygiene in their services.
We have seen a large number of the V-Crates within light industrial environments. Light industry can be identified as the production of smaller consumer goods. This could include clothing/footwear, food/drink or even pharmaceuticals and cosmetic products. These storage crates are perfect for light industry due to their versatility and weight – when empty, they are extremely lightweight and can be easily nested within one another to save your business plenty space. Even when loaded, these nestable crates can be nested on top of one another to maximise the space you have available whilst also protecting the products inside.
Although these stackable plastic crates are hugely popular amongst food producers and light industries, they can also be seen in a variety of situations including transport and for the storage of fabrics and other plastics etc.

This is a sensible investment for your business as it can provide your goods with protection whilst keeping your workplace organised and maximising the space you have available.
The Picker Crate is very versatile and can be used in a number of applications. This type of crate both stacks and nests. It is ideally used for picking and for the transportation of soft fruit and vegetables such as raspberries, mushrooms, strawberries, grapes etc. It is also used in the bakery markets due to the ability to nest the crates and not damage the lower level of products but can be used in a wide variety of light industrial applications also. With a unique innovative design, this picker crate has a 50% nesting ratio complemented with super ventilation. Because of this capability, these ventilated crates have a huge downward effect on cost and also the environment in return systems which will make you more efficient as a company.
