Euro stacking containers are ideal for all manufacturing and service industries. The smooth sides of the Euro stacking containers promote hygiene and are easy to clean. This is why they are suitable for food production, pharmaceutical production and distribution. Non-food manufacturers use larger crates to handle and distribute products and components, while the smaller containers are used for small parts and fixing.
Stacking containers are available in a ventilated and reliable format. The ventilated crates are widely used for food handling applications. This is because the vented side promotes airflow in freezers and fridges and helps the content quickly to reach the desired temperature.
