Since offering its first Xpo crate to the market in 1998, Wenco has carried out an ongoing development and innovation process (which can be reviewed here). Thanks to these efforts, the average Xpo crate today uses half as much raw material as the original. In addition it provides better ventilation -meaning energy savings in cooling the fruit during transportation-; has conical sockets that facilitate stacking; provides great load strength; and, lastly, is perfectly water proof, a quality which the materials used in other export crates cannot offer. Because they are made of a single material -polypropylene- they are also 100% recyclable.
Wenco Xpo has three manufacturing plants in Chile; also three plants in Perú, and one plant in Colombia. Empresas Wenco has the scale necessary to provide the engineering, development and investment each subsidiary requires, but on a day to day basis each plant is managed locally, in order to serve its customers quickly, thoroughly understand their business, and propose innovations that add value to their performance.
In Chile, Perú and Colombia, Wenco Xpo specializes in producing export crates, mainly used for fresh fruit, but also for bulbs.
