ORBIS Launches GitterPak™ Bulk Container

The all-plastic, collapsible plastic container offers benefits compared to gitterboxes in the European market.

ORBIS GitterPak


ORBIS® Corporation, an international manufacturer of reusable packaging and supply chain optimization expert, showcased its newest product, the GitterPak™, at interpack 2017. The GitterPak is an all-plastic, collapsible bulk container manufactured to replace fixed-wall gitterboxes. It can hold up to 900 kg, improving product protection and pack density for heavy-weight loads and high-velocity goods. The 1200mm x 80mm x 960mm GitterPak was presented at ORBIS Booth B30, Hall 7, Level 2, during interpack.

“We look forward to making the GitterPak available to the European market as the industry moves toward a plastic material handling fleet,” said David Heer, senior commercial director, ORBIS Europe. “This product will soon help move a vast range of materials in a more productive, profitable and protected way.”

GitterPak — with its European standard 1200 x 800 footprint, makes it ideal for sequencing parts, as well as rightsizing part shipments for line-side assembly and work-in-process operations. The all-plastic material makes it easy to clean, preventing rust and metal-on-metal part damage. The GitterPak folds when empty for return trips, allowing more containers per truck compared with non-collapsible steel tubs. In a standard truck, 264 collapsed GitterPaks can be shipped, compared to 78 non-collapsible gitterboxes. In addition, the GitterPak is available with up to four access doors and offers excellent interior access for ergonomics and safer handling. The innovative three-runner base allows it to fit into supported racking or automation systems that are standardized to the 1200 x 800 footprint. The double-wall construction helps the GitterPak withstand impact from fork trucks, and the two-snap engagement ensures secure runner-to-base connection.
