Why choose

FIBC's (bulk bags)

What is an FIBC?

An FIBC is a flexible container, sometimes called a “big bag” or “bulk bag”, with a capacity up to 3 cubic meters, carrying loads from 250kg to 2500kg.

FIBC’s are suitable for any free-flowing material in powder, granular or flake form. They are lifted from above by conventional handling equipment such as forklift trucks and cranes.

They are the most cost-effective packaging and transport unit load system of all, as they require no secondary packaging or pallets.

Why use FIBC’s

•  Established: Over a quarter of a billion tons of product is transported in Europe every year in FIBC’s and the market is still fast-growing.

•  Versatile:
Used for chemicals, minerals, foodstuffs, pharmaceuticals, agricultural products, fertilizers, plastics, cement and many more.
