IBC Totes vs. Drums: What are the key advantages?

IBC TotesIn some industries, the standard 55-gallon round drum is still the preferred method of moving and storing liquids. But why? When you consider the pros and cons, IBC totes have key advantages over their cylinder-shaped counterparts. So many, in fact, we’ve produced a free eGuide to highlight the advantages of IBC totes.

But let’s take a step back and look at this strictly from a financial perspective. Did you know that you can save up to 75% by switching from drums to IBC totes? Here’s how:

  • IBC totes have greater storage capacity, so you can store more with fewer containers
  • IBCs can be moved freely and without expensive pallets and shrink wrap
  • Totes can be used multiple times, while drums are generally single-use-only
  • IBC totes eliminate product waste by draining completely, while drums collect residual product 

Of course these are just a few of the advantages; we invite you to get your free copy of our new eGuide to compare the true costs of IBCs vs. Drums.

Or let us show you how the savings can stack up!
