Why Sea Bulk Container Liners are the Most Cost-effective Form of Bulk Packaging What is a Bulk Container Liner?

A bulk container liner or “sea bulk liner” is a protective packaging system designed to transport dry flowable goods efficiently and effectively in ocean shipping containers. The liner forms a shield between the product, walls, and floor of the container.

Liners are filled via belt thrower, conveyor, pneumatic, or gravity-fed system. Their functional design provides for clean and complete discharge of the product. Bulk container liners can provide significant cost savings vs. traditional small bags and bulk bags.

Any dry flowable material can be packed in a container liner. The most commonly packed materials are:

  • PE Resin

  • Soybeans
