Transportation and Storage: Cutting the Costs

fibcsBefore we start the article let’s define straight away that this article will deal with such stuff as: sand, concrete and basically all dry granular materials, grains, seeds, nuts of all kinds, multiple food products, fertilizers, fibreglass and alike materials. Transportation and storage of materials would typically involve renting of high cost machinery and containers. But there are ways to cut the costs by many good percents. In this article we shall talk about the bulk bags and their capabilities.

Bulk bags are bags capable to carry weights over one ton, leightweight and relatively cheap by their nature. Durable bulk bags are produced from polypropylene and are hardly depreciate after multiple re-use. Bulk bags are often sold after being used – which is a convenient way to save extra money for both the seller, who needs them no more, and for the buyer – who is always happy to save some money as long as the bags are not torn. Tearing as pretty much the only thing that makes the bag useless. However, modern days technologies and strong stitches as well as professional staff and no overloads will make your bag last for years.

Third and by far not the latest advantage of the bulk bags employment would be their convenience in loading and unloading of the bags. Guess what? In most cases it will take just one person (fork lifter operationist) and a couple of hours of work.

We have visited privately owned manufacturer in Warrington ( to learn all the capabilities associated with the printing opportunities for new FIBCs bags. It turns out the imprinted bags are typical among the orders and are available even for small orders from 5 – 10 units.

Meanwhile there are a few disadvantages that go side by side with the pluses. Bulk bags require roofed storage for materials that are humidity susceptible. With a typical ship type container that would not be a problem. FIBCs are not as good in terms of putting them on top of each other – load might get critical and break the whole piling scheme.
