Attached Lid Containers

Industries in the supply chain, manufacturing, retail, or service sector, can all benefit from having an end-to-end custom container solution for distribution. Customer-specific solutions can simplify processes, boost efficiency and increase productivity. A key component of this logistical design is the attached lid container (ALCs).

Flexcon provides exceptional quality attached lid containers that come with an integral hinged lid and tamper-evident security to reduce loss and deter theft of high-risk or high-value goods in transit.

Also known as flip top containers, pharmacy totes, and bi-fold lid totes, our ALCs are designed to stack high and nest to increase per unit carrying capacity, lowering shipping cost and saving valuable storage space on return shipping.

What Are Attached Lid Containers?

An attached lid container is a shipping and distribution container with a lid or cover that serves as the closure or seal to completely close the object. Some containers come with a tamper-evident band to seal the lid securely until an opening is authorized. Attached lid containers are also an excellent shipping alternative to disposable or cardboard boxes.

Flexcon provides a range of reusable, lightweight, heavy-duty, color-coded, durable, secure, and large ALCs customized to fit your needs and budgets.

How Do ALCs Move Your Operation Forward?

ALCs are ideal for several applications, including order picking, distribution, conveying, storage, manufacturing, palletizing, and transportation. Some of the immediate benefits that come with our ALCs include:

Safe storage: Installing security seals guarantees your high-value goods in transit are adequately protected. With the lid containers provided by Flexcon, it is easy for you to check if the contents of plastic boxes have been accessed during distribution. Typically a broken seal means the container has been opened by an unauthorized person.

Saving space: Nesting your attached lid containers when empty and open will save you space when you need it. Stack them when full to protect the product. Anti-jamming features allow for easy destacking via machine or manually.

Saving costs: Replacing your disposable cardboard boxes for reusable plastic trays will help you save money by minimizing supply chain costs. Ideally, each ALC replaces hundreds of individual cartons because they can be used multiple times. They are also highly durable, and maintenance-free, thus saving on disposal or installation costs.

Brand building: With our ALCs, you can have printed information or codes on the sides of the sealed containers to advertise your brand or products and services. Printed information can benefit users in applications targeted at customers in the retail and service sector. The containers also boast large surfaces that allow a clear presentation of both the company logo and contact details. Undoubtedly, using our ALCs can guarantee that your business looks professional when compared to other available options.

Prevents cross-contamination: Apart from preventing theft, the attached lids also protect items from dust, moisture, and other contaminants. If your applications are prone to contamination risks, for example, food and pharmaceutical distribution, tamper-evident seals are an essential consideration.

ALCs are ideal for several applications spanning different industries. The specific industries that we provide our containers include but are not limited to medical, automotive, agriculture, produce, aerospace, chemical, apparel, and food services.

Flexcon’s Attached Lid Containers: Exceptional Features

Our ALCs are made from high density, industrial-grade polymers to prevent corrosion and break down or crumbling. Polypropylene makes them highly resistant to most chemicals while being heavy-duty enough for many storage and moving applications.
