Schaefer Systems’ Packaging Systems Division unveiled the newest addition to their bulk container family – GlobalStac – at this year’s PACK EXPO International tradeshow.
Whether shipping by land or sea, the new GlobalStac bulk container offers an innovative 1195 x 990mm footprint with 95% cube utilisation in both a 40’ sea container and a 53’ tractor trailer.
During a presentation at PACK EXPO, Dave McCulloch, CEO of the Packaging Systems Division, explained that when conducting a market analysis of containers on the market around the globe, some exhibited good cube utilisation for a 40’ sea container while others exhibited good cube utilisation for a 53’ trailer. They found that no containers optimised both.
“We wanted to develop a solution that could be used for all applications. One container. One SKU. That was the goal.” McCulloch stated.
The GlobalStac features a 33” (844mm) height option resulting in 256 containers when collapsed in a 53’ trailer or 176 containers in a 40’ sea container. Six other heights are available to meet user requirements.
In addition to maximising cube utilisation, GlobalStac is a returnable, reusable packaging solution offering environmental benefits to adapt to your sustainability policies, while reducing your annual packaging budget.
