COVID and Indian FIBC Manufacturers

COVID-19 has impacted many sectors, industries, and supply chains struggling to recover from the financial losses. It has impacted manufacturers all over the world, and the Indian FIBC manufacturers are no different.

It started with the announcement of a complete Lockdown by the Central Govt. of India on the eve of March 24th, 2020. All industries (except for essential products and services) remained closed for an extended period. Also, the FIBC manufacturers were advised to close all operations as the country came to a standstill. It triggered waves of immigrants who moved back to their homelands and could not return to work when the government had permitted them to start operations again. The manufacturers were sitting with huge backlogs and were operating well below their production capacities.

The sudden drop in the production capabilities triggered lead times from 4-5 weeks to 15-20 weeks for months, and there was a panic buying trend among the FIBC importers all across the world. It took the manufacturers 5-7 months to clear backlogs and operate to capacities. Still, it wasn’t the end of the problems as the FIBC industry found itself amidst another Global crisis from the Shipping Industry. Huge backlogs, exuberant freight rates caused panic, and the trend continues.

Another setback for the FIBC industry was increased raw material prices. The prices have gone significantly up due to increased PP and PE demand in the Global Health Service Industry. The manufacturing facilities have survived it all and continue to provide their services to their customers.

We are sure about one thing that the impact will last far longer than what a common buyer anticipates as India finds itself in the third weave of record COVID cases. Manufacturers are all cautious now, and many of them have already taken significant steps to ensure their workers’ safety by vaccinating their workforce, following the COVID safety protocols.

Safety in FIBC Storage

Storage Of FIBC Bags

FIBC bags can meet the durability and high strength required to carry out shipping & transportation of materials. The storage process is an integral part of the operation. Improper storage and negligence might result in loss of products, increased operation cost, or a fatal accident waiting for you just around the corner. We recommend the users follow international safety guidelines for the storage and handling of FIBC Bags. 

Quick Tips to Store Bulk Bags Properly-

Storage Environment: Watch out for U.V. Rays and weather conditions if you store the bags in an open environment. Every bag is designed to withstand weather conditions for specific periods and geographical locations. We recommend the user thoroughly discuss their options with their suppliers before ordering the bags. FIBCA does not recommend storing the bags in an open environment, even if it is free of moisture or U.V exposure. 

Stacking: Users must also understand that every bag comes with a shelf life and is designed to carry the weights based on its safety ratings. The bags must not be stacked unless the manufacturer approves it as the bags with stack abilities are designed differently to withstand the pressures and weights, or else the bags will rupture, and there could be loss of product and increased costs.

Damage-Free Environment: A user must ensure that there are no protruding items that can potentially damage the FIBC bag’s body. Always watch out for exposed nails on the wooden pallets, sharp forklift edges, rough building surfaces, sharp edges of pallets that can cut through the FIBC bags.

Buyers and users are responsible for following the safety protocols as misunderstandings and negligence can lead to fatal accidents. A manufacturer supplies the bags based on the information it receives from the distributor or the end-user.
