1. BIGBOX – Foldable container
The K. Hartwall BigBox is a truck-wide stackable and foldable container that provides the optimum balance between maximum truck fill and fast loading and unloading – bringing measurable benefits compared with pallets or loose loading.

BigBox – the alternative to loose loading

The new four-sided parcel roll cage features robust, lightweight polymer side panels with clear polycarbonate windows to the front and rear of the unit. The smooth sides allow near-perfect automated filling and emptying of the unit. Its liftable base can be used in a raised position to provide more ergonomic unloading. This roll cage is the ideal solution to combine parcel and letter streams in one unit.
