Updated: Feb 19
Over the past several years, FIBC bags have gained popularity due to their advantages over rigid IBCs, paper bags, and fiber, plastic, or metal drums. FIBC bulk bags are flexible intermediate bulk containers, also known as flexible industrial containers, used for storing and transporting dry and liquid products.

In order to store and transport large quantities of products, FIBC bulk bags have been used by various industries since they were developed. A key characteristic of these advanced containers is their flexibility, and durability, which allows them to hold up to 4000 pounds of material.
China has developed the FIBC supply in a staggering speed in recent year, new plants built and new equipment introduced. This is due to both supply and demand. The traditional manufacturing is on the wane and we are finding new industry, this falls into our lap. Another reason is bulk bag is in vogue now, a common sight in all building sites.
Here are some of the best uses of FIBC bags in bulk transportation:

It is possible to simplify and eliminate the challenges associated with the packaging and transportation of these materials by using the right FIBCs.

With their collapsible design, these bags are easy to store and empty with minimum contamination. Furthermore, they are made of durable, tough materials for safe storage and transportation.
