Automotive containers are used for storing and transporting automotive parts and materials. The automotive industry is tough and requires heavy duty storage and handling options.

Automotive containers, baskets, and or bins are constructed of either plastic, steel or wire, or sometimes a combination of all three. They are either rigid or collapsible, which gives them great flexibility. No matter what they’re made of, they’ll be able to stand up to the tough conditions of the automotive industry.

Although not cheap, automotive shipping containers are designed with high quality materials and built to last. Despite being expensive up front, they end up saving you money down the line. You’ll have to replace cheaper options so often that it’s better to invest from the start.

These containers have a number of uses, which is part of what makes them so valuable. Automotive shipping containers are designed to store automotive parts. Using containers to store automotive parts help to improve your organization, storage density and safety of your operation.

Keeping parts and tools in containers gives them a designated place in your workspace. This makes it easy for everyone to find them without having to go through multiple parts. It will also reduce the time you spend doing inventory.

Using automotive containers not only improves your organization, it also improves your storage density. Some containers are stackable, so they allow you to take advantage of unused vertical space.

By placing parts and tools into containers, you keep your floor space clear. This prevents accidents and keeps potentially dangerous materials in a designated area.

These containers are designed to transport and store automotive parts that generally ship from Tier 1 and Tier 2 automotive part manufacturers and suppliers (like metal stamping companies) to the Automotive Manufacturer. They are designed to safely transport the parts without getting damaged in transportation.

Automotive containers allow you to more efficiently cube out your trailer and maximize your space. Improving your storage density help cut down on shipping costs and allows you to ship more. The containers are also reusable so you’ll save on shipping materials.
