9 reasons to switch to reusable and foldable liquid IBCs

When transporting liquids, regardless of the viscosity, it is vital that they are transported safely and efficiently to their destination with minimal waste. For volumes of around 1000 litres, intermediate bulk plastic containers (IBCs) are the ideal choice as they are designed to store and transport these volumes. They are widely used in industries such as food and beverage, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and more.

Foldable, reusable plastic IBCs have a wide range of applications and numerous advantages over rigid bulk containers.

Below are the top nine benefits of switching from rigid IBCs to foldable, reusable bulk plastic containers from Tosca:
