Rotary stacking container

Robust when loaded - space-saving when empty: the swivel stacking container

Swivel stacking containers, also known as space-saving containers, are nestable loading equipment characterized by their special shape. Their base usually has smaller dimensions than the top edges. When empty, these containers can be inserted into each other. This saves an enormous amount of space and makes them a very popular means of transportation.

In contrast to other nestable containers, the stackable container has another advantage: it does not need to have a lid in order to be loaded with other identical containers. The upper inner edge of this loading equipment is specially shaped to provide a firm and torsion-resistant stand for containers resting on top. When loaded, this creates very stable stack constructions that cannot twist. If they are empty, they only need to be rotated 180 degrees once to fit into the lowest rotating stacking container.

The advantages of stackable containers at a glance

  • Space-saving when empty
  • Safe and torsion-resistant stacking
  • Gentle storage

This makes these containers ideal for order picking and as empties.

Last but not least: However, the special shape of such nestable loading equipment also has a disadvantage. As the sides of the stacking containers are not straight, there is only a reduced loading volume. This reduces the operational capability.
