Stevedore straps are a lifting component of a Flexible Intermediate Bulk Container. A stevedore strap is a belt connecting either two adjacent lift loops, or all four loops. In general, the straps are used for single point lifting. However, the bulk bag is not limited to single-point pickup with the addition of stevedore straps.
Bulk bags used for export shipping and areas where traditional forklift access is difficult are oftentimes equipped with stevedore straps. The straps allow the operator to easily raise and lower a bag with a crane or hook system.
Often used by steel mills, lime processors, and refractories manufacturers, stevedore equipped bulk bags provide the strength and versatility needed for challenging environments.
Used for pipeline construction support including trench breakers, water stops, pipe padding, pipe bedding, and buoyancy control.
For unexpected emergencies caused by heavy rainfall and hurricanes, stevedore bulk bags provide the needed protection against flooding and other catastrophes.
Stevedore straps enable manufacturers to move non-containerized product in ships saving time and money. Highly skilled port personnel maneuver bags in and out of the cargo holds of ocean vessels. Southern Packaging proudly supports a dynamic range of manufacturers that use stevedore equipped bulk bags.

A ubiquitous low-cost bag style, the woven polypropene sandbag provides strength, toughness, and convenient filling for flood control, erosion control, traffic barricade support, temporary levees, and pipeline support.
Made from tubular woven polypropylene fabric, sandbags are capable of holding nearly any dry substance. Woven PP provides a tear and puncture resistant barrier that stands up to wet and dry environments.
Multi-purpose woven PP sandbags are designed to hold up to 50lbs of material in harsh environments. Pre-installed ties allow the bags to be filled quickly and easily for maximum protection against rising floodwaters and storm surges. Sandbags are best utilized for the following applications:
|Flood Control||Storm Surges|
|Erosion Control||Traffic Control|
|Natural Disaster Response||Railroad Tie Components|
