Innovative product features drive picking, fulfillment and transportation efficiency
OCONOMOWOC, Wis. — June 3, 2019 — ORBIS® Corporation, an international leader in reusable packaging, added the FP183 to its FliPak® product line. Intended to replace corrugated shipping boxes, the 21.8” x 15.5” x 12.3” FP183 is a durable, reusable handheld tote that offers long-term packaging cost savings. It can be used in a variety of applications, including picking, work-in-process, storage and distribution.
The ORBIS FliPak containers feature an attached hinged lid to prevent expensive product loss. The lid features molded teeth that snap securely into place, keeping lids closed on conveyors. The FP183 also stacks when full and nests when empty for improved space efficiency. It’s available with a solid drain hole or plus-grid vented bottom for easy cleaning and maximized airflow. These benefits are ideal for grocery, wholesale and medical-surgical distribution.
“We designed the FP183 container to provide more efficient picking, conveyance and transportation. In fact, the container improves truckload quantity — up to 5,808 empty containers — because of the optimized nest ratio,” said Raquel Serna, product manager for ORBIS Corporation. “The stacking ridge on the cover enhances tote and cover durability by uniformly distributing weight, while keeping totes in place when column-stacked.”
Additional FP183 benefits include:
- Fully reusable plastic design keeps plants and equipment clean by eliminating fiber and dust associated with fiber corrugated boxes
- Improved load handling with ability to band across the container length or width
- Added ribbing for increased corner strength
- Recessed, reinforced security tie hole for cleanliness and strength
- Four-finger design to protect from unwanted opening
FliPak containers like the FP183 can be used with reusable distribution dollies, pallets and dunnage to create a more productive reusable packaging load. It also is compatible with other similarly sized industry containers. Visit orbiscorporation.com to learn more.
