BULKSTAC® BULK CONTAINERS

BULKSTAC® BULK CONTAINERS

BulkStac® containers are designed to last and maximize truck space for a better ROI.

Lighter than comparable bulk bins on the market, BulkStac continues to offer savings well after your initial purchase. A unique design incorporates periphery runners, which eliminate the center foot so your products are safe from damage inside the container underneath.

Erected heights of 33.8″ and 25.6″ collapse down to 12.75″ – allowing them to stack nine high with 234 containers per truck load. SSI SCHAEFER Bulk Containers are lighter than comparable boxes on the market, reducing shipping weights and therefore costs.

CUT AND WELD BULK CONTAINERS

CUT AND WELD BULK CONTAINERS

When a standard AIAG 48×45″ footprint doesn’t cut it, we CUT and WELD two or more bulk bins together to create the perfect container for your valuable cargo.

Cut and Weld capabilities allow us to increase or decrease the length, width or height of any existing SCHAEFER container to fit your specific need.

Tests have shown that cutting and welding does not affect the strength or integrity of the container. The cut and weld process offers custom size solutions, shorter lead times and eliminates the tooling costs normally associated with building a custom container

This example shows two AIAG standard 48×45″ bulk bins that were cut and welded together to create a 48×90″ collapsible bulk bin with two doors.

This example shows two bulk bins that were cut and welded together to create a unique smaller size collapsible bulk bin with two doors.
