Three Industries That Can Benefit From FIBC Bags

FIBC bags are flexible intermediate bulk containers that are engineered to store and move a wide range of liquid and dried goods. From volatile pharmaceuticals and chemicals to sugar and flours, FIBCs can help you transport pretty much anything you want. 

Since they are made from highly sturdy and versatile polypropylene (PP) fabric, FIBCs are also referred to as PP bags. If you are not using these bulk bags to load and transport your goods, you are missing out.

Many companies that deal with transporting materials such as food grains, construction materials, and chemicals have been suing FIBCs for decades. These superior jumbo bags offer convenience and safety – all within an affordable budget.

If you are not sure whether using PP bags is the right option for you, consider the following industries that are already using them with great success:


The Food Industry 

Food products like fruits, vegetables, grains, flours, seeds, pet foods, and liquids can be tricky to transport in wooden or paper containers. If you need to ship your food items across the country or the globe, you need something that is lightweight, contamination-proof, waterproof and keeps the items fresh for indefinite periods.

This is precisely what PP woven bags bring to the table. At Palmetto Industries, we comply with all the national and international standards of safety set by BRC, AIB, and the Global Food Safety Initiative. 


The Chemical Industry 

There are different types of PP woven bags or FIBCs – Type A, Type B, Type C, and Type D. Companies that work with volatile chemicals choose to go with Type D FIBCs since these are designed to handle flammable goods and environments. 

If you work with pharmaceuticals that call for the highest safety standards and absolutely cannot be contaminated, an FIBC bag will be a wiser choice than, say, a Gaylord box.


The Construction Industry 

If you work in the construction industry, you know how challenging it can be to transport heavy loads and often irregularly-shaped materials. Consider choosing FIBC bags for their flexibility and superior strength. 

These bags can be used to carry any material involved in the construction fields, including sand, gravel, slag, pellets, clay, resin, and minerals. A large-sized bulk bag can easily contain up to 4,000 pounds of materials.


Other Industries

Even if you don’t sell pharmaceuticals or food products, you can use the bulk bags to facilitate your packaging and transporting needs. Other industries, such as engineering, mining, and fishing have also switched to using PP bags in the last decade. If your business involves any of these activities, FIBCs are handy enough to help you meet your business operation goals.
