Customer-led research is the key driver in Loadhog's innovation process for glass packaging, so please contact us today if you need help finding a handling and logistics solution within your sector.

Pioneers in the development and supply of modern glass packaging systems for bottles, Loadhog’s plastic layer Smartpads and reusable capping trays have shown to be the safest, most cost effective method of packing glass and transporting tall pack pallets for both the producer and the filler.

Since the launch of this revolutionary product, we have found new applications for the layer pad within the canned goods industry. The waved edge profile encourages bottles and cans to migrate towards the centre of the pad during transit and other movement. The improved stability allows for additional layers of glass and cans per pallet, reducing transport requirements and associated costs.

With Smartstak, pallet stability for glass packaging is optimised, while eliminating the requirement for horizontal banding. Consequently, bottle loss is reduced dramatically. In fact, Shepherd Neame, one of our oldest Smartpad customers, have had zero bottles fall from the line since the system was adopted.
Smartstak also provides better hygiene performance than traditional top frames, and our state-of-the-art wash plants in the UK and Portugal can facilitate up to a million pads a month.

A trial of our product is the best way to see increased efficiency. Contact the Loadhog sales team to start the process of improving your supply chain:
