Buckhorn Introduces New Products at PACK EXPO: Extended Length Bulk Container, Distribution Pallet and Attached Lid Container

Buckhorn Inc., a leading provider of reusable plastic packaging solutions, is featuring three new products at PACK EXPO Las Vegas. These include a new 62” x 48” extended length bulk box, a distribution pallet, and a new and improved attached lid container.


Buckhorn® launches new 62” x 48” extended length bulk boxes



The new 62″ x 48″ footprint offers maximum trailer cube utilization allowing more containers to fit in a 53′ trailer.  The extended length boxes have a 2,000-lb. capacity and also inter-stack with Buckhorn’s existing 64″ x 48″ product offering. 

The containers are available in 34″, 44″ and 50″ heights.  “The 44″ height is a completely unique offering,” said Joe Borer, Market Manager.    “Both the 44” and 50” heights feature a tall, one-piece base with 10” of storage for dunnage allowing the panels to be collapsed for return shipment.”

Buckhorn’s extended length bulk boxes are ideal for products such as automotive trim parts, hoses, pipes, harnesses and other long, awkwardly shaped items.  They collapse flat in seconds and stack for storage and return shipment – optimizing space usage and saving money on return freight.  Hand-hold areas on the panels provide a comfortable grip for assembling and collapsing the containers.  

Other features and benefits of the product line include:

  • Footprints: 57″ x 48″, 62″ x 48″, 64″ x 48″ and 70″ x 48″
  • Spring loaded latches on doors and sidewalls provide quick and easy assembly, knock down and access to contents
  • No hinge pins – walls snap in place and remove quickly for replacement
  • Non-sequential folding allows quick collapsibility and prevents walls from bowing when collapsed
  • Drop-doors and four-way forklift entry improve ergonomics and handling efficiency
  • Optional steel corner hit plates
  • Superior durability for reliable performance
  • Customization and identification options available
  • Backed by a one-year limited warranty
  • 100% recyclable HDPE


Buckhorn® introduces distribution pallet at Pack Expo


Distribution Pallet

Buckhorn Inc. is also introducing a new 48″ x 40″ nestable distribution pallet at this year’s Pack Expo.  The patent-pending pallet optimizes storage, shipping and handling for the grocery, retail and wholesale food distribution markets.  It is an economical and sustainable alternative to wood allowing hundreds of round trips for a lower overall cost-per-trip. 

“Buckhorn is pleased to be expanding our product offering for distribution,” commented Kris Roach, Market Manager.  “This pallet along with our new 21” x 15” attached lid totes proves that we are committed to providing economical, durable and reliable solutions that will better help this market service their customers.”

The pallet’s two-piece welded construction offers a superior strength-to-weight ratio.  The distribution pallet is lightweight, easy to clean and provides a high dynamic load capacity of 3,000 lbs.  It has ergonomic hand holes for easy lifting.  Its non-slip surface minimizes product movement, while the optional perimeter lip and anti-skid grommets also help prevent load shifting.  

The feet have a channeled design for added durability, and multiple feet options ensure compatibility with most nestable pallets.  Its capture corners grip stretch wrap with ease, and it offers a superior nest ratio – 1,260 empty pallets fit in a 53’ trailer.


Buckhorn® develops new and improved 21” x 15” attached lid containers



Buckhorn Inc., the company that developed the first attached lid, reusable distribution containers in the early 1970s, is introducing a new and improved line of 21” x 15” attached lid containers at his year’s show. 

The AC2115 totes are available with a solid or open textured bottom in 9” or 12” heights and stocked in light gray or green colors.  The containers feature an improved recessed lid design as well as larger, more ergonomic handles.  They have a lighter tare weight and reinforced corners, allowing the containers to maintain strength and hold a capacity up to 60 lbs.  Customization and identification options are also available, including a large textured area on one end, which eliminates the need for a placard.

Buckhorn offers attached lid containers in many sizes and styles for shipping, picking and storage.  Ideal for applications in distribution, grocery and general manufacturing, these containers deliver long-lasting, cost-saving performance.  The containers are 100% recyclable and are injection-molded of HDPE.  The durable construction resists impact, moisture and most chemicals.  The interiors are easy to clean, and the containers nest for maximum space usage when the lids are open allowing more containers to fit on a 53’ truck.
