The Benefits of Collapsible Storage Containers

1 – Space Saving

Magnum containers are guaranteed to help you save a lot of space in your warehouse or business premises. They keep your products secure and neat while making sure you can have unlimited access to the units content when you need them. The units are stackable and when not in use, the units are fully collapsible which reduces the height when stacked

The foldable containers are fully stackable without the requirement for additional pallets / racking. If you choose to invest in foldable storage containers for your business, you can rest assured that your team will remain as safe as possible. These containers are sturdy and reliable, so there is less risk of accidents or mishaps. 

3 – Durability

One of the main advantages of using collapsible storage containers is that you can reuse them time and time again. Collapsible storage containers are built to last, and many of them remain in perfect condition for many years. Foldable storage containers ensure superior product protection with a robust design and damage resistant material and modular construction. That means you don’t have to spend a fortune, and your purchase will be worth the investment every time. 

4 – Adaptability

There are few limits when it comes to the way in which you can use magnum containers. They are some of the most adaptable storage solutions on the market today, and that is why they are exceptionally popular with companies in the warehousing and storage industries. The units provide ready access to the containers content via half drop down gates on both the long and short side. They improve handling flexibility and product security with four-way forklift access and streamline the line side process with single person operation and the elimination of strapping and wrapping material.

5 – Cost Savings / Sustainability

The containers are specifically designed to reduce the cost of relocating empty containers while providing maximum product protection and load security. As the units are stackable, this also allows for  significant cost savings on return transport. The main benefit of collapsible storage containers is that they reduce costs along the entire supply chain by using one single container from Tier supplier to line side. The units are fully recyclable and eliminates packaging waste and the associated time and cost with this

6 – Ease Of Use

Foldable storage containers are easy to use and can be operated by one single person so any product training is minimal.
