Unveiled Monday night, the heavy-duty, max cube collapsible HDMC4845 BulkPak container from Orbis Corporation (Booth 1803) is designed to fit 84 full bins per inbound truckload, and 252 collapsed bins per return truckload.
“The containers come in a 48 x 44.5 inch footprint and in two heights, 26.5 and 34 inches,” said Scott Krebs, product manager. “That small size difference accommodates 28 positions in a truck versus the standard 26, but we engineered the container to still meet the standard interior dimensions for automotive parts handling—44.3 x 41.5 inches.”
The containers hold 1,800 pounds and also feature an easy-to-replace bottom stringer to lower ownership costs, and two-piece spring-loaded latches that securely anchor the sidewalls for load handling safety, added Krebs.
ProMat 2011 will be held March 21 - 24, 2011 at McCormick Place South in Chicago. The tradeshow will showcase the latest manufacturing, distribution and supply chain solutions in the material handling and logistics industry.
