3 Questions to Cabka_IPS

Interview with Naiara Loroño, Sales Director Europe South at Cabka_IPS

Which is the major subject you are currently focusing on?

We are driven by pioneering and inventive spirit. Back in the early 1990s, we assumed a pioneering role in the processing of mixed plastics. We were also one of the first to produce lightweight plastic pallets for the worldwide transport of goods, thus offering the market an alternative to wooden load carriers. Innovative strength is one of our pillars and we are convinced that creative ways of transforming plastic waste into a valuable resource will be even more necessary in the future.

We are a provider of ideas and solutions: In addition to lightweight export and durable logistics pallets, we offer our customers tailor-made special products that are precisely tailored to the respective logistics chain.

What is your strategy to answer the increasing demand from both the industries and the consumers, in terms of sustainable development / eco-design?

Our plastic pallets are available in various material qualities. The spectrum ranges from low-cost, recycled mixed plastic to homogenous material. Wherever the product makes it possible, we use recycled plastics as an economically and ecologically more sustainable option. This applies to our material handling portfolio as well as to our technical product solutions in the fields of gardening and landscaping, traffic and construction site safety and construction.

We recycle the products ourselves at our production sites. Since our founding, we have been active in this demanding field. Product development and tool making for our plastic products also take place in-house and in close cooperation with our customers. In such a close cooperation relationship, we can also return pallets at the end of their service life and use them as raw materials for reprocessing in order to implement a circular economy.

Why did you choose to take part in ALL4PACK 2020? / Which kind of decision makers do you meet there?

All4PACK is for Cabka one of the European most relevant exhibitions as it brings together a comprehensive offer (Packaging + Processing + Printing + Logistics) that meets the market’s integration strategy and highlights the innovative power of the Packaging ecosystem together with the Intralogistics sector.

Actually, the high level of attendance with more than 75,000 professionals is part of the success, and for Cabka ALL4PACK means a great meeting point for the existing and potential customers of the French market as well as those from African countries. Our products are intended for many different and different industries. However, Food & Beverage, Retail, Pharmaceutical or Chemical are some of the most important and we always expect to meet with decision makers from these industries during the show. Normally, General Managers/Site managers, Procurement or Supply Chain are our interlocutors for material handling goods, such as for our pallets, pallet boxes and containers.
