Xcarrier: Optimally Produced Young Plants in a dynamic Tray

The Xcarrier is a new system developed by Syngenta Flowers in collaboration with BPO (same design agency that developed our Xtray) to optimize production and distribution methods of young plants. The system consists of two individual parts, a reusable rooting tray that is similar to the disposable plastic trays and a shipping tray that holds the rooting tray during distribution and is compatible with the Xtray. The Xcarrier brings three advantages of different solutions in Young Plant production and distribution. 

Benefitting plant health and quality

The rooting tray is designed in conjunction with the characteristics of the current one-way plastic trays for optimal production practices - benefitting plant health and quality. With 11 cm plant space while being stacked, the Xcarrier significantly reduces the risk of damage to the plants. Moreover, the Xcarrier is designed to tap into the benefits of paper pot production currently utilized and proven in the non-Xtrays. It is easy for the manual and automated transplanting and will reduce the risk of damage to the young plants in that process.

Xcarrier - efficient stacking

Efficient and space-saving when stacked

The shipping frame is designed to hold the rooting trays and make them stackable on pallets for efficient distribution just like our Xtrays. This reduces the use of CC trolleys in the distribution process. Also, because of the two individual parts, the Xcarrier can be very efficiently and space-savingly, stacked once the trays are empty.

Sustainable

The complete system provides a closed loop where trays are returned, cleaned and reused in line with our Xtray process. This will also reduce the use of one-way disposable plastic trays making our supply chain more sustainable.
