Octabins - bulk storage containers

Octabins are a heavy-duty packaging solution for the transportation and storage of bulk cargo such as granular, powder, and other loose fill products. Made from heavy duty corrugated board, the octagonal-shaped pack consists of a base, sleeve, and lid, which can be manually erected. Octabins provide a cost effective and environmentally friendly alternative to wooden and metal crates.

The heavy-duty but lightweight material decreases the weight of the load, reducing shipping costs and carbon emissions. All octabins are designed to withstand the entire supply chain and are stackable. Optional features such as discharge points are available, and for extreme loads an inner sleeve can be added to provide the highest bulk resistance. To maximize storage space and minimize transport costs all octabins are delivered flat. After use, octabins can be easily disposed of and are 100% recyclable.
