Collapsible Containers

We create functional technologies.

Flexcon provides innovative solutions such as collapsible containers to help optimize the supply chain across many industries. Divider systems, dunnage, and pallets are durable and can be repurposed. Our collapsible, reusable material handling containers are an example of a product that will increase efficiency while reducing costs.

These cost-effective and customizable containers came about in response to a customer’s desperate need for space that was taken up by massive numbers of stackable totes. Our team of material handling experts worked with them to design custom collapsible containers. These new containers allowed them to reclaim valuable real estate that was formerly buried under a staggering number of stacked totes. In fact, they were able to reclaim 29% of the space that had been devoted to tote storage.

Common uses for collapsible containers.

These collapsible containers help solve the universal problem of not having enough space in a warehouse or other facility. Stackable containers waste space when not in use. Empty, they take up just as much room as when they’re full. By collapsing containers until they’re nearly flat (knock-down ratios are as high as 4.7:1), you’ll have more space to devote to the profitable aspects of your business. When needed again, the collapsed containers can be restored to their full height in as little as two steps.

There are 16 different heights and storage-bottom combinations available to meet your specific needs. Choose solid side and end panels to protect against contamination. Ventilated panels allow for sight management and improved airflow. Additional strength (without added weight) is provided by the reinforced bottoms.

Other benefits of Flexcon’s collapsible containers:

  • Customization options make them suitable for use as point-of-purchase displays, increasing their usability even more.
  • You’ll have easy access to identification cards with the integrated AIAG and Kanban cardholders.
  • These collapsible containers offer superior durability and stacking strength.
  • Enjoy the flexibility and efficiency of shipping mixed loads on the same 45 x 48 pallet.
  • They’re also available for 48 x 40 GMA pallets.
  • Excellent knock-down ratios mean lower costs for return freight and warehousing.
  • The storage bottoms provide plenty of room for reusable protective dunnage, even when collapsed.
  • There’s a reduced risk of damage or loss to custom dunnage since it is stored neatly inside the collapsed containers.
  • Consistent inside dimensions at the top and bottom allow for easy installation and removal of even multiple layers of protective dunnage.
