Original Press Release:



Ship Shape Bulk Containers Share Footprint with Asian Standard for Smooth Integration in Global Trade



44" x 44" Footprint Closely Matches Standard Pallet Size In Asia

Bulk Containers Permit Unitized, Palletless Loads Within Existing Logistics Systems

Ashtabula, OH: Ship Shape(TM) bulk containers from material handling product manufacturer Meese Orbitron Dunne Co., Ashtabula, Ohio (www.ShipShapeContainers.com), feature a 44" x 44" footprint that closely matches the pallet size most commonly used in Asian shipping. The comparable size permits North American exporters to ship unitized, palletless loads to China, Korea, Japan, Taiwan and other countries in reusable Ship Shape plastic containers that seamlessly integrate with existing logistics systems and receiving equipment. Shipping overseas in the reusable bulk containers also eliminates the costly transfer of goods from 48" x 40" pallet loads onto the more compact, Asian dimensions for substantial savings in time and labor.

Rotationally molded of 100% polyethylene in a single piece for strength, durability and resistance to the elements, the Ship Shape returnable bulk containers are impervious to chemical attack, rust and corrosion and are immune to the infestations and diseases common to wood pallets. The molded plastic bulk shipping and storage containers eliminate concern for compliance with the phytosanitation regulations that restrict the use of wood in global shipping for fear of transcontinental contamination.

The bulk containers accommodate up to 700 lbs. of dry products, nest up to four high when empty and stack when covered. A wide range of standard and custom colors and a host of options are available.
