Save Shipping Costs With FIBC

FIBC bags are a revolutionary option for bulk packaging that are both cost-effective and environmentally friendly. FIBC (Flexible Intermediate Bulk Containers) are able to transport and store all different kinds of materials, which includes both non-hazardous and hazardous dry flow-able products.

Not just can bulk bags make storing and transporting materials and products more efficient and easier, they also can decrease your shipping costs. Let us assess 5 ways bulk bags will assist in reducing your shipping expenses.

Transportation Expenses

Unlike additional options for bulk packaging, Flexible Intermediate Bulk Containers don’t require pallets, eliminating the necessity for expensive secondary packaging. In most cases, secondary packaging may add quite a bit of weight and take up extra space, thereby raising the price to ship your product(s).

And on top of not needing secondary packaging, FIBC bags are highly durable and in the majority of cases don’t need protective packaging. Similar to secondary packaging, protective packaging may get quite expensive and not using it will save both money and space (on trucks, shipping containers, etc.).

Very Low Dead Weight

Dead weight involves the container’s weight that you’re utilizing to transport your material/product. The heavier a container, the more dead weight you’ll pay to ship. FIBC bags are very light, which minimizes the quantity of dead weight your company pays to ship. The less dead weight that’s shipped equals more material/product shipped for less money. It is as easy as that!

Capability of Carrying Larger Quantities

Flexible Intermediate Bulk Containers, both extremely durable and light weight, have the capability of carrying a lot of material/product. With safe working loads that range from 1,000 to 5,000 lbs., FIBC bags are able to transport and store a fair amount of material/product.

Storage Expenses

Warehouse space gets costly and it is the aim of every company to efficiently utilize every square foot of space. Unused bags may be folded into a small size, which makes storing bags that are waiting for use cost efficient and easy. In addition, filled bags are more convenient to store, because they may be stacked on top of one another, which helps your company maximize your warehouse space.

Reusability

A few woven polypropylene bulk bags specifically are designed for several uses and they’re referred to as 6:1 SFR (or Safety Factor Ratio) bags. Such bags may be utilized more than one time and may decrease overall expenses. It’s vital that you note that even though the bags are rated for a multitude of uses, there are certain guidelines that you must adhere to for proper and safe use.
