Streamline your handling operations and productivity

In essence, the Correx® totes that you can specify and source from GWP Correx® are designed to improve the efficiency and productivity of your workforce and processes concerned with in-plant and line-side handling.

 

This can be achieved in a number of ways.

 

For example, by specifying the most appropriate type and size of tote, you can ensure that any manual handling will be improved through the lightweight nature of Correx® material.

 

Integrated handles also ensure easy lifting and movement of your totes, whilst they can also designed / sized to work perfectly with not only your products and parts, but your conveyors, racking and automatic handling equipment.

 

Stacking corners also mean that your totes can be safely stacked. This is not only a health and safety benefit, but also makes the most efficient use of the storage space at your production facility or warehouse.

Plastic tote boxes

Perhaps most importantly however, is the use of internal dividers and inserts.

 

Through use of Correx® or Bicell dividers, it allows your workforce to easily handle or even ship multiple items in a single outer container. The dividers also help to eliminate damage during handling, by preventing components or parts from colliding with each other.

 

This easy identification of parts also allows for quicker “at a glance” stock checking, and can help improve assembly times in line-side applications.

Designed to enhance your efficiency

  • Stacking corners and strength allow for safe and efficient storage
  • Standard sizes to work seamlessly with your existing racking / conveyors etc.
  • Custom sizes and designs to suit your specific products or application,
  • Inclusion of divider sets and / or foam inserts can further aid handling efficiency
We have purchased thousands of handling products from GWP, including tote 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.

Reduce the ongoing costs to your business

Besides the impact of increased efficiency on your business, there are a number of ways Correx® totes can reduce your costs.

 

Firstly, whilst Correx® totes display similar performance to moulded plastic boxes, the unit costs are significantly lower.

 

Besides this, the longevity and lifespan of the material also ensures the costs across the totes lifetime are reduced as well. This is further reflected in the totes being easy to clean, and being resistant to water, oil, grease and most chemicals.

Stacking totes

These properties of the Correx® material also enhance the protection given to the contents of the tote. Items in storage will be protected from moisture and dust for example. The use of Bicell dividers can protect the surfaces of polished or painted parts. And foam inserts can be used for cushioning if mishandling is likely to occur (or will cause expensive damage).

 

A further cost saving can be realised through taking advantage of custom sized totes. Tailored to your products, it can enable more efficient handling, can prevent the shipping of “fresh air” if the totes are not completely full, and can also reduce required storage space too.

 

So whilst the generally lower unit costs will have a direct impact on your business, by reducing both handling damage and storage space you can see additional tangible cost savings too.

Ways Correx® totes can help to reduce your costs

  • Performance comparable to moulded plastic, but lighter and more cost effective
  • Strength and durability providing excellent longevity reduces lifetime costs
  • 3 options (light / medium / heavy duty) allow balance between cost, weight and strength
  • Resistant to water, oil and grease, minimising storage damage
  • Easily cleaned surfaces to further boost lifespan
  • Minimised damage from mishandling results in less written off stock
