Hopper Front Containers

Every industry has individual items that are challenging for inventory and are easily misplaced. Construction has hardware such as nails, screws, and washers. Tech has cables, adapters, and memory chips. Healthcare has vials and bottles. Unless these individual items are organized and stored in containers, employees can spend hours looking for a part. With hopper front containers, it’s easy to see what and how much of an item is available.

What Are Hopper Front Containers?

Hopper front containers are also called pick or shelf bins. They may also be classified as drop-front containers. These containers have a semi-open front to allow easy access to the contents. Drop-front containers come in custom and standard sizes ranging from 18 x 6 x 4 inches to 24 x 12 x 10 inches. Oversized options are available.

Why Use Hopper Front Containers?

Our containers are made from durable FDA-and USDA-approved polymers, making them safe for storing food, medical supplies and apparel. The hopper front containers can be wall-mounted and are dual-sided. They use electrostatic discharge materials (ESD), making them ideal for storing sensitive electronics. Flame retardant options are also available.

Who Uses Hopper Front Containers?

Whether it is aerospace or cyberspace, our containers are used in all industries. Companies looking to improve operations and organize smaller items into larger containers for faster retrieval and processing. One market that has welcomed hopper front containers is eCommerce. When companies offer next-day delivery, searching for items could mean broken promises. With a semi-open front, it is much easier to see what is being picked for shipment.

Incorrect orders eat into a merchant’s profit and frustrate customers who may decide to go elsewhere for future business. Organizing products into storage containers means faster pick up and earlier assessments of low inventory, leading to more efficient operations.


Some Hopper front containers ship flat to save on freight while others are assembled and welded. They can be stored flat until needed, minimizing storage requirements. The containers come in 27 standard sizes, ensuring a size to fit any requirement. Unique requirements can be met through custom orders.

The hopper fronts come in five standard, and seven special colors. Standard colors include blue, black, white, red, and gray. With special colors such as yellow, green, or orange, you can color-code your storage to make it even easier to find what you’re looking for. They also come in a clear option.

These heavy-duty, industrial plastic containers are made in the USA and are recyclable. These totes are perfect for shelving storage with a smooth front for identification labels. Label holders are available, making relabeling as simple as sliding a new tag into the holder.

Plastic containers last over 30 times longer than corrugated cardboard and give storage facilities a professional look. Well-organized, color-coded containers that are stacked or placed on shelves present a finished look to any storage space.
