Returnable Containers

Work with our experienced engineers to create the custom rack that fits your needs

Our design team works directly with our customers, partnering with them for total in-house logistics management. Bring us your models or parts or just tell our designers what you need and we’ll work together to design and create a comprehensive solution. We specialize in quick design turn-a-round and time proven designs. We use a variety of dunnage inserts to protect the valuable parts or assemblies shipped in our shipping containers. Common dunnage used in our shipping containers are made from heavy-duty fabric material, CNC cut HDPE, Vacummed formed plastics, water jet cut foams molded polyurethane or other materials. custom-designs, cost-effective container systems

Our returnable steel rack systems are the definition of custom. They come in a variety of shapes, sizes and functions custom fabricated to meet your exact needs. Used in conjunction with our custom designed foam, plastic, and textile dunnage, we have the ability to get your most sensitive parts safely from point A to point B.

Collapsible Containers

Collapsible steel containers for reusable systems are an appreciated form of packaging that can be customized to fulfill the customers needs. Save money on your returned collapsible containers with a 2:1 Return ratio.

Steel Racks

Steel racks have a long lifetime and their strength protects the products from impacts and rough handling. The design can be fully customized to provide optimal handling on the production line.  For use internally as process racks or for external shipping, steel racks can be made collapsible to minimize freight costs and maximize floor space.  We take all aspects into account including lift assists, line side presentation and rack foot print to cube out trailers to maximize part density and save freight cost.

What you will Receive

When each returnable container project is complete our engineers create a TDP (Technical Data Package) that is electronically delivered to the final customer. This TDP will include at a minimum: a complete set of prints in PDF form, a dxf file for each page that includes detailed parts, a 3D PDF of the rack with parts in it, and a final model in the form of a step file. This TDP will also include any shock analysis that may have been needed for shelving, and any verification that was performed on  possible prototypes created during the process. Additional files, and file types can be provided upon request as well.

Folding Bin Project

We specialize in designing containers to fit specific customer parts, but we can also design bins that can have a multitude of uses. The bin below is a great example of this.

The covered sides and lid of this bin keeps whatever is being stored within protected and secured within it even when they are stacked several racks high to save floor space. Custom anchor points can also be added to the interior of the bin to better secure specific parts, and the rack can be designed for any footprint that is required by the customer.

For most bins available, the tall sides that protect and contain the parts within the bin normally cause large ergonomic issues when the items need to be removed. We solved that problem by making two sides of the bin completely removable. This allows any parts within the bin to be easily removed without bending over the side of the bin.

This best part of this entire bin is how much money it can save on return shipments. Due to our folding design 3.5 times as many racks can be shipped when they are empty. This means that for every seven trucks that need to be used to ship the full racks only two trucks are needed to return the empty racks.
