5 Ways FIBC Bags Can Reduce Your Shipping Costs

Posted on 31 May 2019

FIBCs are not only great for your product but also your business. These bulk bags are not just environmentally friendly, versatile and practical, you can also add cost-effective to that list. They make transportation and storage easier and reduce shipping costs. In this blog, we share 5 ways Bulk Bags cut your costs.


1. Transportation costs and secondary packaging

FIBC bags do not require the use of pallets in transport, which eliminates the need for costly secondary packaging. These pallets would add not only weight but also buying costs and take up additional space. Using FIBCs saves you money on all these factors, plus it eliminates the use of protective packaging material. Big Bags are extremely durable and don't require a second layer of protection around your product. Talk about a win-win.

2. Low dead weight

The heavier a container, the more dead weight you pay to ship. FIBCs have an extremely low dead weight, minimizing unnecessary costs during shipping. Therefore with using Big Bags, you are able to ship more product for less money.

3. Carry more, pay less

They are called Big Bags for a reason. Using FIBCs, you are able to transport working loads ranging from 450 - 2300 kilograms, using just a single Big Bag. This again saves costs on additional packaging material, as mentioned in #1 and #2.

4. Save on storage

Every square meter of storage room is valuable: warehouse space is expensive and saving space means saving costs. FIBCs take up minimal space, as they can be folded into a compact size. But even filled bags are easy to store since they don't require pallets and can often be stacked on top of each other.

5. Reusable

If you choose the right bag, you can use it more than once, once again saving money on buying additional products for packaging. Even though not all bags are reusable, there are possibilities to buy multiple use ones.
