Euro stacking pick bins for businesses of all sizes
Correx® stacking pick bins are the perfect way to store, organise and quickly retrieve your stock. Durable Correx® material offers increased protection & longevity than cardboard bins, whilst being more cost effective than moulded plastic.
Correx® picking bins can be modular in size, to maximise both the picking area and the number of SKU (stock keeping unit) available. They also minimise distance and time between picks. Read More
Detailed information on Correx® Euro Stacking Pick Bins
Unlike using moulded plastic picking bins, Correx® Euro stacking pick bins can be supplied in the exact size and shape you require. Designed and manufactured in house by GWP, this ensures they are tailored perfectly to the products to be stored, or your available warehouse or storage space.
This dimensional flexibility can reduce storage costs too (effectively meaning you do not have to choose the nearest size bin, which will inevitably lead to wasted space).
The free-standing design of these stacking pick bins also means that they can be used within racking, on aisle ends or indeed anywhere within your warehouse or fulfilment centre. This in turn provides a solution for your business when managing seasonal fluctuations (e.g. additional Christmas stock) and spikes in demand of your products.
The use of Correx® stacking picking bins 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.
Enhancing your stacking pick bins
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. All Correx® bins can also be screen printed for identification, branding, instructions or warning purposes to further improve the efficiency of anyone picking orders.
The strength of Correx® also ensures that bins will not burst or split, again preventing injuries but also protecting stock from damage too.
Similarly, Correx® material is resistant to moisture, oil and grease. Not only does this ensure that these stackable storage boxes can be used in a wider range of environments, but it also increases their lifespan and helps protect the items stored within. This makes them a much more durable option than equivalent cardboard picking bins.
Correx® Euro stacking pick 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 the corrugated plastic material can also be used at low temperatures, your Correx® euro bins can be used in refrigeration, cold store and unheated warehouses without the risk of failure.
All of this means that Correx® stacking pick bins are a great solution for any business looking to improve their order picking and fulfilment processes.

What is the difference between a stacking pick bin and a euro stacking bin?
The terms stacking pick bin and Euro stacking pick bin are pretty much interchangeable. The only real difference is that the prefix of “euro” can indicate that the bins are only available in a set of predefined sizes (commonly used in Europe). GWP can manufacture picking bins to these set dimensions, or you can specify completely bespoke sizes / configurations to match your specific requirements.
Can Correx® picking bins be made to any size?
Correx® bins can be designed and manufactured to virtually any size and design (within reason of course). This makes them a great choice where the strength and properties of moulded plastic bins are required, but they are not available in sizes suitable for your inventory / space. Using tailored sized Correx® picking bins can also help your business maximise space efficiency too.
What colours can stacking pick bins be?
Correx® stacking parts bins can be manufactured in a range of standard colours. These are white, black, yellow, green, red and blue. Other colours can be selected (including custom hues) but these are subject to much higher MOQs (minimum order quantities). Utilising different colour stacking pick bins within your warehouse can also help with segmenting stock and aiding picking efficiency.
Why should my business use Correx® picking bins?
Correx® storage bins offer the perfect balance of cost, performance, lifespan and flexibility. They offer strength and lifespan equivalent to moulded plastic parts bins at a lower cost. Plus they offer much greater longevity that cardboard bins, whilst retaining the option of being manufactured in custom sizes.
Cardboard picking bins are cheaper. Should I use those instead?
Cardboard picking bins are the lowest cost picking bin option available. This is because, whilst they are good for short term requirements or light usage, their lifespan is considerably shorter than that of the plastic picking bin equivalents. So whilst they may be cheaper initially, over the medium to long term, they will be more expensive (due the cost of continually replacing them).
Are there different style picking bins available?
Besides these Correx® euro stacking pick bins, GWP can offer your business a wide range of additional options. This includes Correx® shelf bins and parts bins, corrugated cardboard bins (often referred to as K bins), plus moulded plastic “lin bins”. This is in addition to specialist anti-static bins. And if none of these are exactly what you are looking for, GWP can design and manufacture completely custom bins to any specification.
How high can these Euro pick bins be stacked?
How high the Euro bins can be stacked depends on a number of factors, including the size of the containers, the design, and the weight of the contents. As a general rule of thumb, the bins should not be stacked higher than your order pickers can comfortably reach. However, if you have a specific requirement, GWP will be able to design and manufacture picking bins that meet your criteria.
Are these bins suitable for dusty or damp conditions?
Correx® stacking pick bins (and indeed any of the plastic picking bin options from GWP) offer great resistance to moisture, damp conditions and most chemicals. They also have smooth walls, making it easy for them be cleaned if they become dusty / dirty. And, unlike cardboard, they do not shed fibres, further minimising the generation of dust in your warehouse / fulfilment centre.
