DS Smith Plastics Introduces AkyPak™ Reusable & Foldable Bulk Containers

[KAYSERSBERG, France, March 12, 2018] DS Smith Plastics, Extruded Products launches their new line of AkyPak bulk containers designed to optimise costs associated with logistics management.

AkyPak bulk containers are composed of a thermoformed lid and pallet and a customisable sleeve for cargo optimisation. When empty, the sleeve is folded in between the lid and pallet and shipped flat reducing the cost associated with returned logistics & transportation.

The lid and pallet are made of thermoformed HDPE and the sleeves of polypropylene plastics. All three components are highly reusable (average of 7 years) and can be recycled at the end of their useful life. Other benefits include light weight, stack-ability and ergonomics.

DS Smith Plastics’ AkyPak line of bulk containers includes three main models:

  • AkyPak Classic, a returnable in 3 separate, stackable parts to optimize logistics flow.
  • AkyPak Advanced is compacted into a single unit return position to avoid loss of pieces.
  • AkyPak 4You, a custom-designed bulk container per customer’s specification.
