Ranging from 500 to 2000kg weight capacities, Vera Plastics’ FIBC come in a variety of sizes and specifications; are available in white or custom colours, made to order based on the customer’s requirements with a variety of filling and discharging options.
The bottom line is that they boost profits by being a tried and tested cost-efficient packaging solution.
Save Warehouse Space and Save on Freight Costs
Using FIBC will reduce freight costs, save warehouse space, and minimize costs associated with spillage and cleaning. They are suitable for a variety of storage applications in the agriculture, food, chemical, mining and construction industries.
Transporting and loading of FIBC are done on pallets or by lifting them from their loops. Bags are made with either one, two or four lifting loops. Emptying is easy with a special opening in the bottom with a discharge spout or by cutting it open.
FIBC can store and transport:
- Cattle Feed
- Construction materials (sand, gravel, concrete)
- Food Products
- Pharmaceutical Drugs
PP is the safest of all the plastics. Strong and durable with high heat resistance, it will not leach when exposed to warm or hot water. Its strength can handle any abuse and PP is the preferred packaging material for transportation within Canada and around the globe.
FIBC has many other great features:
- They have the lowest package to product weight ratio of any intermediate bulk container. You can ship one metric ton of product with a package weight as little as 5-7 lbs. (2-3 Kgs).
- They have built-in lifting hoops so they can be handled, transported, and stored without pallets.
- They are lightweight when empty and fold flat taking up less space than other types of packaging.
- They can be customized for size and capacity, filling and discharging features, handling features and more.
They are Also Recyclable!
PP is used in every plastics market, from protective packaging to medical equipment. It can also be recycled keeping it out of landfills to live another day as food containers, cutting boards, outdoor rugs, and more.
If you look in your fridge or cupboard right now, you will find PP plastic because it is extensively used for food storage. What is great is that it is an inert material that doesn’t pose a health concern for consumers.
Strong, durable, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly, FIBC reduces labour and handling, increases space for warehousing and transportation and is reusable and recyclable. They can be custom designed to manage a variety of products and applications for limitless possibilities.
