 If you expect to use the totes indefinitely, then buying may be the most cost effective option. Purchasing the totes works well when demand is stable and predictable.  A fleet of totes can be efficiently utilized as long as demand is constant.

Renting stainless steel IBCs solves these problems and provides a major advantage over purchasing containers.

Renting provides the ability to get the totes you need into production when you need them.
