Schaefer Systems’ Packaging Systems Division unveiled the newest addition to their bulk container family – GlobalStac™ – at this year’s PACK EXPO International tradeshow. Whether shipping by land or sea, the new GlobalStac™ bulk container offers an innovative 1195 x 990mm footprint with 95% cube utilization in both a 40’ sea container and a 53’ tractor trailer.

During a presentation at PACK EXPO, Dave McCulloch, CEO of the Packaging Systems Division, explained that when conducting a market analysis of containers on the market around the globe, some exhibited good cube utilization for a 40’ sea container while others exhibited good cube utilization for a 53’ trailer. They found that no containers optimized both.

“We wanted to develop a solution that could be used for all applications. One container. One SKU. That was the goal.” McCulloch stated. The GlobalStac™ features a 33” (844mm) height option resulting in 256 containers when collapsed in a 53’ trailer or 176 containers in a 40’ sea container. Six other heights are available to meet user requirements.

In addition to maximizing cube utilization, GlobalStac™ is a returnable, reusable packaging solution offering environmental benefits to adapt to your sustainability policies, while reducing your annual packaging budget.
