Automotive - Folding Large Container

CHEP’s foldable container solutions are used by the automotive industries in Europe, the Americas, and Asia Pacific for both domestic and cross border supply chains.

The Foldable Large Container (FLC) builds on the proven performance of existing bulk containers. It is specifically designed to reduce the cost of relocating empty containers while providing maximum product protection and load stability.

The range of containers includes different heights to meet regional requirements and is accepted by the majority of automotive manufacturers and suppliers.

  • Ensure superior product protection with robust design features including ergonomic latches & handles, wear & damage resistant material and modular construction
  • Increases transport and storage space efficiency – containers are stackable when full or folded
  • Ability to access bulk parts line side through the use of the side access doors
  • Streamline line side processes with single person operation and the elimination of strapping and wrapping material
  • Improve handling flexibility and product security with four-way forklift access
  • Reduce time and effort for opening/closing access doors and collapsing containers with large, spring-loaded ergonomic latches
  • Eliminate packaging waste and the associated time and cost with fully recyclable materials
  • Reduces costs along the entire supply chain using a single container from Tier Supplier to line side
