EXPANDABLE POLYSTYRENE

How many octabins we can load in a container

For a 20 ft conainer we usually load 10 octabins 950 / 1000 Kg each, or 20 double stacked octabins 450 / 500 Kg each. In a 40 ft container we can load 20 / 22 octabins of 1 Ton each. Some high cube containers can fit 24 octabins. Pallet size is 1100 x 1100 mm. We request a minimum 12.5 m. length trailer for road deliveries.
