AF Crosstac™ Returnable Containers

Crosstac™ containers are AF Transtac™ containers with a bottom design which permits cross stacking, regardless of container size. This results in less handling time and labor at line side, and significant cost savings. The bottom of the Crosstac™ container is designed so that large containers can be stacked on top of small ones or vice versa. Heights are calculated to add up to a level pallet load, regardless of how the containers are stacked. For the shipper this means less time is needed to cube a pallet efficiently. And, when the containers arrive at the cross dock, they are stacked on the pallet based on the order in which they will be used at the assembly line.
