How to optimize the value of using Big Bags in storage and production?

Big bags, also known as FIBCs (Flexible Intermediate Bulk Containers) or Jumbo bags, are used for storing and transporting large volumes of dry bulk materials in various industries.

For example, they are used in the chemical sector, the food industry and agriculture. Products such as granules, powders, pigments and grains are stored in large quantities and processed using big bags.

Advantages of using big bags
A big bag is made of woven polypropylene, which is a strong and durable material and resistant to tearing and wear. It is lightweight and chemical resistant. In addition to the fact that a big bag can be reused, the material is also recyclable. This makes big bags an environmentally friendly solution for industrial packaging and suitable for adoption into a circular loop.

Alternatives to the big bag are in many cases more expensive, less efficient or less sustainable. For example, the use of bulk trucks often requires special loading and unloading equipment at the site. Switching from smaller bags (25 kg) to big bags is often beneficial from sustainability and cost considerations. Octabins can be an alternative to big bags but in general they are a lot more expensive and less durable.

Challenges with the use of big bags
In addition to the advantages of using big bags, there are also a number of disadvantages when it comes to safety, hygiene, stackability and layout:

  • Safety: big bags often weigh 500-1500 kg, so it is important that they are used and transported correctly. Staff must have proper training and equipment. There is also the risk of the big bag falling over.
  • Hygiene: it is important to avoid contamination, especially for companies in the food and pharmaceutical industry. Therefore it is important that the right big bag is used. Big bags can be recycled after single use, or disinfected if they are made of a thicker type of plastic.
  • Stackability: stacking big bags entails a huge risk. Loosely stacked big bags are not stable and can easily fall over. Putting them all next to each other takes up a lot of space.
  • Layout: each big bag looks different and has loops and trunks in different places. It is important that the big bag can be connected to the available equipment for correct handling.

How to get the maximum value from big bags
Fortunately, there is a solution to the challenges of using big bags. Meet the Indus Neva. The Indus Neva is an all-in-one solution, designed for easy filling, safe internal and external transport, efficient stacked storage and (dosed) emptying of big bags. The Indus Neva can be used in any environment where bulk goods are transported and processed. Examples of industries in which we are active: plastics, chemicals, powders, nuts and seeds.

1. Easy filling
With the Indus Neva you can easily fill big bags. Simply place an empty big bag into the system and attach the lifting loops to the poles. The Indus Neva can be easily transported using a forklift truck and positioned under the filling system.

2. Safe internal and external transport
The Indus Neva can easily be moved around the warehouse by a forklift or pallet truck and transported in trucks. Because the big bag is connected to the system with lifting loops, the big bag remains stable during transport. Furthermore, the Indus Neva is designed to stack efficiently, allowing for up to 7 meters or 6 tons of stacking. This allows you to make maximum use of your storage space, creating up to 4 times more storage space.

3. Easy emptying
Finally, the Indus Neva offers an unloading option through the bowl-shaped bottom deck. This creates a funnel formation so that the product flow runs smoothly. The slide, situationed in the bottom deck, can be easily opened and closed to unload the big bag. Thanks to our advanced technology we ensure the emptying of even the most bridging powders.

At Indus, we are committed to accelerating the transformation towards sustainable, accessible, and safe handling of solids in the industry. If you require advice on the correct use of big bags in storage or production, do not hesitate to contact us at
