    There are four main categories of industrial containers:

    • Crates: These are the most commonly used industrial containers. You’ll mainly find plastic crates, wood crates, and metal crates. Some are used to store standard, non-hazardous goods. Others can be used to transport chemicals, and are reinforced to prevent leaks.
    • Pallet boxes: These are containers with a pallet base. They can be transported with a forklift truck.
    • Intermodal containers: These are either shipping containers loaded onto container ships or very large containers used to store non-liquid bulk goods (garbage containers, for example).
    • Picking bins: These bins are used to store small parts, often hardware placed on workbenches.

    Your choice of container depends on the application.

    • For indoor storage, opt for containers with separators and picking bins which, thanks to their front opening, make it easier to pick up stored products.
    • For transport by truck or boat, opt for large containers.

    Make sure you also choose containers that meet the right industry standards.

    • For the automotive industry, choose containers that meet the VDA automotive standard, such as Odette containers.
    • For the food industry, choose containers that meet food standards and the requirements of your business (butchery, vegetables, poultry farming, fishing, etc.).
    • For electronics, opt for ESD models, which allow industrial containers to be in contact with electronic components, thus avoiding electrostatic charges.
