BioFresh – Smart Pallet

Meet the Smart Pallet

Fresh thinking to create innovative Smart Pallet.

Modular design and construction is key to the success of Tharsus' design for Smart Pallet.

A Value-EngineeringChallenge.

The problem with fresh produce is that it quickly stops being fresh. Spoilage costs the industry billions every year. Biofresh’s innovative product extends the storage life of perishable foodstuffs throughout the supply chain.

Tharsus engineered out cost while adding to durability and functionality. Delivering a superior product with significantly reduced through life costs.

A ModularSolution.

The key element of the Tharsus solution is the modular construction allowing for quick and easy configuration and replacement of damaged components.

Ruggedisation was greatly improved, for example the plastic pallet will resist ‘forklift abuse’ far better than a steel unit and can be quickly and easily replaced in the event of damage.

What the client had to say...

Quite a lot of the other people we went to were …It was just like “Tell us what you want and we’ll build it like that”, whereas Tharsus were always more, “What is it that you actually designing?” They shown a lot more interest in the actual background design of the product… Tharsus were looking to try to put their design expertise, trying to say well actually how can we make this easier to manufacture so you get more, you know, you can get more cost benefit out of it, but how does that influence the design etc…
