The package of initiatives under the banner of the European Green Deal introduced by the European Union (EU) is aimed at guiding member states through the green transition. Consequently, the EU area is to achieve climate neutrality by 2050. Changes taking place due to the Green Deal force companies to both revise their own practices and find business partners who will provide support and solutions consistent with the new guidelines.
Elkom Trade is a company which successfully implements the assumptions of the Green Deal, both in terms of manufactured materials and social responsibility activities. The company manufactures high-quality logistic containers used for storage, order picking and transport of finished products. Elkom Trade also undertakes active measures towards sustainable development, which is confirmed by the certificate awarded to it by EcoVadis.
Elkom Trade’s portfolio includes a wide range of mesh containers that are resistant to mechanical damage. These are proven solutions that find their application in many branches of industry and optimize transport and warehouse logistics. Row materials of highest quality used for manufacturing of mesh baskets, as well as optimal methods of protection against corrosion, ensure durability and safety of use. The mesh design ensures optimal air flow, thanks to which the containers are suitable for storing various types of goods. Should it be necessary to store small products, baskets can be filled with solid or hollow PP boards.
When properly used and maintained, mesh containers manufactured by Elkom Trade can be used for up to 15-20 years. Worn or damaged parts can be subjected to regeneration process consisting in restoring their original performance characteristics. The comprehensive nature of this treatment restores the required shape, dimensions, parameters and properties necessary for further operation. The container is covered with the same quality guarantee as a new product. During the regeneration process, joints and welds can be supplemented and polypropylene boards replaced or supplemented. The regeneration process can also cover zinc coatings.

Mesh containers are a good alternative to high storage racks because they can be stacked up to 6 containers. Undoubted advantage is also the possibility of storing them folded to the base, which has a beneficial effect on the optimization of storage space.
The multiple use of mesh containers within a cycle of several years and the possibility of recycling them make them an ideal logistics solution that fits into the Green Deal strategy and the circular economy.
