Reusable crates can be shipped thousands of times and avoid the high cost of traditional single-use containers
IBCs (International Bulk Containers) have long been utilized for storing and transporting bulk liquids and powders. Considered more durable than cardboard boxes or wood pallets and containers, yet smaller and easier to manage than shipping containers, these intermediate-sized options are ideal for bulky or heavy items. Even within the IBC category, however, there are many container options based on type of material (wood, plastic, tubular steel, aluminum or steel) as well as types (rigid, folding and flexible).
With so many choices, carving out a niche can be difficult, but that is the case with new options in collapsible, reusable IBC containers made of galvanized steel.
Having none of the disadvantages of wood and with more durability than plastic alternatives, these containers supply more durability and longevity over thousands of trips in closed or open loop systems.
