Logistics BusinessFoldable Large Box Developed by Schoeller Allibert

Especially designed for the Automotive supply chain, a unique shallow foldable large box has been developed by Schoeller Allibert: The Magnum Optimum® 595. This brand-new box increases efficiency thanks to less weight, more usable volume, improved ergonomics and smooth design. A one-of-a-kind solution, designed to push the boundaries of containers for the automotive sector.

The Magnum Optimum®595 is designed to become the most efficient logistics solution thanks to its size and modular system, its capacities, its identification and safety options and moreover its easy and cost-effective maintenance. With a 295 mm incremental height when folded, this product offers the highest folding ratio on the market, allowing up to 208 empty ones in a standard truck and up to 78 when fully loaded. The special design of the Magnum Optimum®595 includes a versatile modular system which allows this big foldable container to increase its volume with the Optiframe®spacer by 105mm or even include a dunnage to secure textile or soft dividers.

The 595 mm height was developed for high density and low volume parts which maximises vehicle fill while minimising the logistics cost but also carbon footprint. Depending on the truck used for the transport, it is possible to load up to 10 folded containers and up to 5 fully loaded containers. With a 750kg dynamic unit load and 3 200kg stacking load, the Magnum Optimum®595 is the strongest foldable large container on the market.

This remarkable new design also offers many safety and identification options. The Magnum Optimum®595 is created to meet the expectation of the customers for whom tracking and safety are essential pillars. Smooth and straight surfaces, easy to clean (no dirt or water retention), as well as the non-sequential folding and easy-to-use locking devices make it a safe and operator-friendly container.

The Magnum Optimum®595 offers multiple identification options which will ensure an easy tracking and fleet management. Recessed zones for permanent labels on all sides with bar code labels, as well as large inserts for customization on each wall will allow the customer to easily identify its products with their logo on each box. Label holders on doors and walls are included, but the must is definitely the multiple RFID labels or IOT beacons (it can be equipped on demand), allowing a 100% accurate and individual packaging management.

Easy to use but also easy to assemble and maintain, all parts of this container are clipped and/or assembled by bayonets which makes all parts, sides and doors easy to change. The lifespan is increased and the maintenance costs reduced and at the end it can also be recycled, eliminating all packaging waste.

“Better, safer, stronger, although it was a real challenge, we wanted to offer the best of our technology with this new container, while also ensuring an environmental friendly product,” explained Ludo Gielen, Chief Strategic Growth Officer of Schoeller Allibert.
