Reusable Salmon Box Rental
PPS East are supplying reusable salmon boxes and collapsible bins to UK & European salmon farms and processors for the transportation of whole salmon or fillets. Our reusable plastic salmon boxes are used by Scottish, Icelandic and Norwegian farms who realise that it is much more cost effective to use a reusable type of packaging to transport their fresh salmon compared with single trip expanded polystyrene boxes. These salmon companies are also using PPS returnable salmon crates for their internal loops from farm to processor or smoker. Returnable salmon boxes not only cost less per use, but they also eradicate polystyrene packaging waste and reduce the carbon footprint of the salmon.
PPS East salmon boxes are made from food grade HDPE, and are hygienically cleaned by PPS after every use to a BRC standard. Box inspection, swabbing and testing is carried out which can include monitoring for bacteria, salmonella, listeria and pseudomonas, so customers are safe in the knowledge that boxes are always sterilised effectively before re-use.
Stacking of full PPS salmon boxes
Once the salmon boxes are packed with product they can easily be stacked on a Euro pallet for transportation. Full boxes can even be stacked up to 30 salmon boxes per pallet.
A typical stacking example of full boxes could be:
- 10 layers of salmon boxes
- 3 boxes per layer
- 30 boxes per pallet
Storage of empty PPS salmon boxes
Boxes are shrink wrapped and barcoded after receiving a BRC standard wash. Boxes are nested together and then stacked on to a euro pallet ready to be returned to salmon packing plants.

- 3 boxes per layer
- 105 boxes per pallet
