A stackable container is a type of container used to store industrial products.
Normal containers are not designed to be stacked when not in use. Stackable containers are designed in such a way that they can be stacked on top of empty containers in a stable manner and can be partially fitted into the container to save space.
Those that can be stacked at the time of use are called stacking containers, and there are some that combine both properties.
Stackable containers are widely used mainly for storing and transporting parts in factories.
There are two main types: box type and mesh type. The box type is mainly used for storage and transportation of industrial parts, while the mesh type is preferred for transportation of perishable and daily-delivery foods.
In addition, some products are designed to be stacked in large numbers, and can be slid to the lower tier for stacking.
Stackable containers are often made of materials, such as polypropylene or recycled resin, as they are required to be durable and lightweight for repeated use.
In order to improve the usability and visibility required at actual sites of use, products with various shapes are available, all of which are slightly narrower at the bottom in anticipation of stacking. They are also available in a wide variety of colors, taking advantage of the material's ease of coloring.
There is a wide range of sizes to choose from, and most of them are designed for efficient loading on food carts and pallets for industrial use. Mesh-type containers for food products are also known as food crates, and attempts are being made to distribute standardized products to improve operational efficiency.
Other stackable containers that can be stacked when not in use are folding containers, which save more space. Folding containers require assembly, whereas stackable containers can be used without assembly.
