Here are 4 reasons why the versatility of FIBCs make them the right solution for you to transport your bulk goods hassle-free!

4. Reduced Fire Hazard

Transporting flammable materials can pose a serious fire hazard, especially when exposed to high friction and build up of electrostatic charges. This is where Type C and Type D FIBCs made out of high-grade plastic help with their static-control properties. This ensures the safe transfer of flammable products.

You can store your empty FIBCs in most types of environments without causing them serious harm.
