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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
