Industrial containers are a type of product support for handling and storing goods, which comprise a unit load. Their shape facilitates the housing of products inside and keeps goods protected from bumps or blows during transport.
Europallet sized bulk containers are often used to: transport goods with the same forklifts, and to locate them in any kind of storage system.
There are also different types of containers that come in various measurements for specified uses. In addition, concrete storage needs are addressed like those for pallet bases, with containers available in three distinct materials. The main industrial containers, as per the manufacturing material, are the following:
Lastly, there is another type of container used to transport small-sized products, namely plastic totes. They are often placed on pallets for easy handling. Thus, their sizes come in sub-multiples of the europallet, with the 15.7 in x 23.6 in eurobox being the most common.
Euroboxes are made in submultiple measurements to fit on europallets and are used to hold small and delicate products.
These are manufactured with the same base as plastic pallets. This base may or may not match the size of the Euro pallet.
Made in diverse sizes and finishes means they are more or less suited to certain storage systems.
They are made of a wooden euro pallet base and two or more wood or metal mesh panels attached to its sides.
