BNS Closure Systems
There are several options available for closing the BNS. Basic Crating will recommend the
best system based on the features that will provide the most benefit to their supply chain.
BNS Returnable is a durable and easy-to-handle returnable packaging box made of steel, six hinges and birch plywood. This allows our boxes to withstand the rigors of multi-use and return transports. This box has the option to be returned collapsed in order to save the costs of return transportation. Under regular operating conditions, a single BNS Returnable replaces more than forty one-way packaging boxes.
This box can be collapsed to optimize space in return shipments and storage. A use of returnable boxes can bring huge cost savings compared to expandable boxes. BNS Returnable boxes are very cost-effective especially when customer material flow is high, and they have few distribution points.
The boxes are manufactured in several standard sizes but also can be made up to customers’ sizes.
