Sustainable, Returnable, Recyclable – With a Weight Capacity of up to 900 kg
ORBIS foldable large containers offer sustainability – across the entire life cycle. That starts with the production of our FLCs: We use recycled materials during the manufacturing process which leads to a reduction of CO2 emissions. Due to their longevity and durability, our large collapsible containers are suitable for green logistics. With a weight capacity of up to 900 kg, companies can transport more parts per bin and optimise space utilisation. Like most returnable plastic packaging, ORBIS FLC containers are 100% recyclable. At the end of a long service life, we offer to buy back obsolete containers and use the raw materials to produce new packaging products.

Frequently Asked Questions about ORBIS Plastic FLCs
What is a foldable large container (FLC)?
Foldable large containers (also called: pallet boxes) are large collapsible containers adapted to Standard pallet footprints. They can be manufactured from wood or plastic. As a combination of container and pallet, pallet boxes often have runners. Due to the runners, operators can easily handle the large containers with fork lifts and lift trucks. Added to that, they are collapsible for maximum space savings during storage and return transport. ORBIS foldable large containers (FLCs) are available in different variants and for different applications. Our range of FLC containers includes: European footprint 1200 x 800 mm, ISO-footprint 1200 x 1000 mm, XXL boxes with extended length, optimised for 40′ overseas containers 1190 x 1135 mm. Foldable large containers are robust, durable, collapsible and stackable.
What is the BulkPak® Family?
The ORBIS Europe BulkPak® brand consists of foldable large containers made from plastic. In 1997, the product range was first brought to market in the US as shipping containers for components in automotive and industrial applications. Still today, our heavy-duty bins are successfully used all over the world in a variety of different industries. The plastic FLCs are sustainable alternatives to conventional packaging solutions, such as metal containers, steel gitterboxes or wooden crates.
How does ORBIS manufacture its plastic containers of the BulkPak® Family?
The ORBIS BulkPak® Family is characterised by the special manufacturing process. Using a so-called Low Pressure Injection Moulding Process, ORBIS manufactures very robust and durable large collapsible containers that have a relatively low tare weight. Due to the special process, we can use high percentages of recycled materials, which leads to a CO2 reduction. Foldable large containers help reduce product damage that can result from rust or splinters. After a long service life, ORBIS Europe offers to buy back obsolete FLC containers for the material price. Customers can profit from cost advantages and do not have to take care of disposing the packaging waste. We recycle 100% of the plastic raw materials and use them to manufacture new plastic load carriers.
