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.
