Challenge :

A French pharmaceutical and nutraceutical manufacturer was looking for a large container to transport bulk pharmaceutical products such as liquids with various densities, oil, powder, and granules for export to the Middle East.

  • Reliable (certifications ISTA & DEKRA)
  • Stackable – 2 on 1 in warehouse up to 1,100kg per container. 1 on 1 up to 1,300 kg per container in dynamic.
  • Sustainable (100% renewable)
  • Optimised shipping space and reduced CO2e
  • Printable solution
  • Zero risk of leakage thanks to our patented valve locator.
