A great shipping container can sometimes perform ‘double duty’ as a sequencing rack. But, sometimes a shipping container makes a rather lousy sequencing container – and that can get expensive. Different containers designed for the same part but used in different ways can result in big savings.
Consider that a shipping container might have a 10-day shipping cycle. Such a container would be loaded and unloaded about 25 times per year; that’s 100 times over a period of four years.
A sequencing rack may be filled several times during every day of production. Thus, a sequencing container might exceed 100 load / unload cycles in just its first month of service. The construction and materials used to make a container need to be selected with its use in mind. Let Bradford’s experts apply their talents to help you.
