The following pages are intended to give you as clear a picture as possible of who we are and what we can do for you. Of course, there is always the chance that you have questions that we have not yet answered. Answers to the most frequently asked questions can be found below:

- What are the benefits of using roll containers?

Using roll containers rather than pallets generally enables you to transport greater volumes as you can load to heights of between 1,500mm and 1,700mm. Some roll containers can offer even more loading height. Furthermore, all of the goods are on wheels, so they are easy to move around before departure or upon arrival. 

- Empty roll containers take up a lot of space. What can I do with them?

Depending on the type of roll container used, they can be dismantled (by removing the cage from the base unit) and stored in one or more assembled roll containers that are not in use. The separate base units can be stacked, making this packaging extremely compact. However, nestable roll containers are even simpler. Just a couple of simple adjustments enable you to stack these containers for extremely compact storage. Contact us for advice.

- What type of roll container will be best for my logistics processes?

By creating a meticulous inventory of your logistics process, a shortlist of suitable roll containers can be drawn up. If you are active in the foodstuffs industry, then a plastic roll container base unit may be the right solution for you. A steel base unit may also be an option. This is due to the fact that they must comply with HACCP standards. If you are transporting goods that may be particularly vulnerable to theft, then security measures should be taken into account. Completely sealable containers would therefore be the best option. And if you regularly transport products of varying sizes, then we can develop a made-to-measure solution for you.

- What type of wheels should I use for the roll containers?

This depends on a number of factors. In general, wheels with rubber treads are quieter to use, and harder wheels, such as polyamide wheels, offer less rolling resistance. The temperature of the environment in which the roll container will be used also influences the rolling resistance. It can therefore be tricky to know which type of wheel to choose. We’re always happy to help you decide!
