Schaefer Systems announces a breakthrough product for global logistics

Schaefer Systems’ Packaging Systems Division unveiled the newest addition to their bulk container family – GlobalStac™ – at this year’s PACK EXPO International tradeshow. Whether shipping by land or sea, the new GlobalStac™ bulk container offers an innovative 1195 x 990mm footprint with 95% cube utilization in both a 40’ sea container and a 53’ tractor trailer. During a presentation at PACK EXPO, Dave McCulloch, CEO of the Packaging Systems Division, explained that when conducting a market analysis of containers on the market around the globe, some exhibited good cube utilization for a 40’ sea container while others exhibited good cube utilization for a 53’ trailer. They found that no containers optimized both. “We wanted to develop a solution that could be used for all applications. One container. One SKU. That was the goal.” McCulloch stated.
