A flexible film package for carry-out meal items is fabricated from a pair of telescoped sack members, the outer sack member being made longer than the inner sack member in order to define a spill-confinement pouch in its bottom and the inner sack member being fabricated from relatively stiffer film material than the outer sack member and with one or more beverage cup receiving apertures in its bottom for promoting a stable, upright positioning of the beverage cups during carrying of the filled package and upon placement of the filled package on a generally horizontal support surface.
A disposable shipper-dispenser comprises telescopingly assemblage carton top and bottom members. The bottom member includes spaced sidewalls, an open top and an open front. The sidewalls have downwardly and forwardly inclined bag-handle-guide edge portions and a vertically extending intermediate edge portion defining a stop at the forward end of the inclined portion. Each of the sidewalls additionally includes a vertical front edge which is spaced forwardly from the stop edges to define a bag-handle spreader-hanger therebetween.
A modular pallet arrangement formed of a pair of upper and lower pallet sections each of which includes plurality of molded plastic lower pallet units that are adapted to be interconnected in telescoping interlocking relation to form a complete pallet. Certain of the lower units are adapted to be connected to more than one upper unit, so they can join adjacent upper units to each other.
A modular pallet arrangement that includes an upper pallet section, with a plurality of grid-like upper units having downwardly facing, cup-like, upper connector elements, and a lower section, with a plurality of grid-like lower units having upwardly facing, cup-like lower connector elements adapted for telescoping engagement with connector elements of the upper units to provide interlocking relationship between, and support for, the upper pallet section units, and including a plurality of elongated, rigid, reinforcing members interconnecting portions of the lower section units.
A support rack adapted for suspending a flexible plastic bag having diametrically opposed handles in an open condition while simultaneously buttressing the bag to facilitate the loading of articles therein comprises a skeletal, open frame including back support means and confronting side support means for receiving a bag to be supported. The back and side support means are arranged to define a confinement boundary for the back and side panels of the bag and have dimensions generally corresponding to the height and width dimensions of the bag when opened. The rack further comprises bag suspending means carried by each side support means arranged to receive the bag handles for maintaining the bag in a suspended, opened condition. A rack mounting means projects rearwardly from the back support means and has pendant coupling means for mounting the rack along the top edge of a horizontally disposed support member.
