SHANGHAI, May 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Horen, the leader in plastic bulk foldable packaging, has released a new foldable plastic liquid intermediate bulk container (IBC) product, OptiFlow™1040 (OF1040).
The foldable bag-in-box container concept simplifies handling throughout the logistics process and, as OF1040 is returnable and reusable, substantially reduces the use of packaging materials compared to one trip IBC solutions.
By adopting the international size of 1200mm x 1000mm, OF1040 conforms to international standards which enables the efficient movement of products between countries and continents. It is easily used across any intermodal transportation.
At 3.5:1, OF1040 has the highest folding ratio of any IBC currently on the market. The folding rate is a very important attribute of a foldable container as it dictates how much space can be saved in a warehouse or truck when the container is folded. Space is closely related to cost and Horen's IBC has the lowest folding rate on the current market.
Great innovation has enabled Horen to create the OF1040, the smartest and most user friendly reusable, folding container in the world. Horen has applied more than 30 patents in the development of the OF 1040 and continues to push technological boundaries to ensure it provides the most efficient and innovative products to the liquid handling industry.
