To reduce shipping costs. Our client approached us to develop a new flexible intermediate bulk container (FIBC) capable of maximizing the available space in a shipping container while minimizing unload time.
By engaging the customer in the design process and working directly with their specific product and shipping containers, we were able to deliver the optimal solution for their shipping needs: custom-made FIBC packaging.
The Syn-Tex Approach:
By replacing uncertainties and internal biases with hard data collected in partnership with our client, our R&D team was able to prototype various options to tackle the challenge at hand. This collaborative approach allowed us to eliminate the element of surprise, allowing a team of industry experts to choose a solution with confidence.
The End Result:
With a bulk density of 30 lbs./cu ft., a new polypropylene sewn bag was designed and chosen. This new bag increased the amount of product to be shipped in a 20 foot container to 29,400 lbs, up from 21,600 lbs, which is a 30% increase over a conventional bag.
