ORBIS Packaging Solutions for the Automotive Industry

For OEMs and automotive suppliers, optimised efficiency and sustainability in the supply chain is key. For decades, ORBIS has led the conversion of plastic reusable packaging in the automotive industry. Our customers profit from years of experience in implementing collapsible plastic bins at suppliers and OEMs. Reusable plastic packaging solutions such as the BulkPak® Family of FLCs offer great potential for cost savings and CO2 reduction. With a collapsible, stackable design and high weight capacities, the plastic FLCs optimise part shipments across global supply chains in the automotive industry. Our foldable large containers are available in different footprints: In European standard dimensions 1200 x 800, in industrial standard dimensions 1000 x 1200, optimised for ocean freight or XXL Boxes in extended length.

Innovative solutions for lithium-ion battery transportation

The current shift towards e-mobility leads to challenges in the area of packaging. As lithium-ion batteries are classified as dangerous goods, the transport of these goods is subject to strict regulations. ORBIS has developed the IonPak®, a plastic foldable large container that is UN-certified to transport solid dangerous goods. That includes lithium-ion batteries but also other products such as airbags and belt tensioners (after successful completion of fire testing). Our offer includes a variety of different footprints and styles as well as qualified consulting by dangerous a goods safety advisor. The collapsible and recyclable all-plastic container brings considerable transportation cost savings and operational benefits to your supply chain.
