Correx® picking bins are the perfect way to store, organise and quickly retrieve your stock when fulfilling orders. Their durable Correx® material protects your stock from moisture and boasts a longer lifespan, whilst also being cost effective compared to moulded plastic.
You can specify your picking bins to practically any size, with expert design ensuring material usage is minimised (resulting cost savings are passed directly to your business). These lower costs will be in addition to improvements seen in productivity due to faster picking times and improved stock organisation.
Correx® picking bins have numerous benefits over cardboard and moulded plastic bins – and therefore can make a significant impact on your operations. Please use the links below to jump to your particular area of interest.
The use of carefully selected picking bins, as well as providing a cost effective solution, can also directly impact the efficiency – and therefore productivity and profitability – of your business.
The most obvious way this can be seen is through the quicker and easier retrieval of stock from your inventory. This effectively reduces picking times and allows your operatives to fulfil more orders.
This can reduce staff costs whilst also allowing your business to cope with increases in demand / sales.
This benefit can be further enhanced in a number of ways. Adding label areas and printing of instructions or part numbers can speed visual recognition, whilst the use of different coloured Correx® pick bins can be used to further segment stock.
Other advantages include the lightweight nature of Correx® ensuring bins are easy and safe to handle. This helps to minimise staff absences through poor handling practices.
The strength of Correx® also ensures that bins will not burst or split, again preventing injuries but also protecting stock from damages too.
The use of Correx® picking bins (also commonly referred to as pick, part or shelf bins), can have a surprisingly significant impact on your ongoing costs.
Perhaps the most important consideration is the ability to have them manufactured to custom sizes and designs. You can specify the exact size and shape to ensure they are tailored perfectly to the products to be stored, or your racking / storage system. Both of these options help eliminate wasted storage space.
The use of differing structural designs – on which GWP can provide full advice and guidance – also ensures that regardless of the dimensions, custom Correx® bins will offer performance levels and longevity far in excess of corrugated cardboard K bins.
These structural designs are also optimised for the most efficient use of material. This further minimises the unit costs, the savings being passed directly to you.

Whilst Correx® provides greater longevity than cardboard, thus providing a much lower lifetime cost for the bins, it also offers levels of rigidity and strength approaching moulded plastic Euro Bins.
Bespoke Correx® picking bins, however, offer considerably lower upfront costs, whilst the dimensional flexibility can reduce storage costs too (effectively not having to choose the nearest size bin which will inevitably lead to wasted space).
With material held in stock, it allows both low and high volumes to be competitively priced and available on very short lead times.
This not only enables easier management of costs – specifying the amount of custom bins you need rather than a MOQ which is too high – but also gives your business the ability to cope with seasonal fluctuations (e.g. additional Christmas stock) and spikes in demand of your products.
We have purchased thousands of handling products from GWP, including picking bins as well as boxes, foam, dividers and more. Many of these have been bespoke, being expertly produced by GWPs’ in house designers. As a company, GWP are efficient, friendly and easy to deal with.

Besides the benefits provided by the strength and lightweight nature of Correx®, storage bins manufactured from corrugated plastic provide numerous additional advantages.
This is particularly evident when comparing them to corrugated cardboard equivalents.
Firstly, Correx® is resistant to moisture, oil and grease. Not only does this ensure that the shelf bins can be used in a wider range of environments, but it also increases their lifespan and helps protect the items stored within.
This latter point is particularly important should your business experience unacceptable levels of items that become damaged or un-sellable whilst in storage, as it can help to significantly reduce the cost of written off stock.
Correx® picking bins are also easy to “wipe clean”, again extending their lifespan but also meaning that they are suitable for applications where hygiene is important (e.g. medical and food sectors, amongst others).
As Correx® can also be used at low temperatures, your picking bins can be used in refrigeration, cold store and unheated warehouses without the risk of failure.
Perhaps the most important advantage offered by Correx® picking bins however is their extended lifespan over cardboard bins.
Whilst the initial cost may be marginally higher, as they will not need to be replaced as frequently, the lifetime cost of each bin ends up being significantly lower. This in turn has a clear impact on your businesses’ costs in the medium to long term.

As well as being able to choose Correx® shelf bins in practically any size, there are a wide range of additional options that can be specified too.
A wide range of colours can be chosen to match either your existing bins or your company’s corporate colours, whilst additional components such as moulded plastic handles, label pockets and corner reinforcements can also be incorporated.
All Correx® bins can also be screen printed for identification, branding, instructions or warning purposes to further improve the efficiency of anyone picking orders.
Additional products manufactured by GWP can be used in conjunction with your shelf bins to further enhance their range of applications.
Larger picking bins can benefit from having Correx® or Bicell divisions and partitions added.
Bicell material can be supplied with a material or foam laminate, eliminating scuffing and providing an enhanced level of cushioning protection. This has proven to be particularly effective in reducing damages during handling, minimising the costs of written off stock that cannot be sold or used.
