The Benefits of Bulk Bags vs. Gaylord Boxes 
1. Benefit of Bulk Bags -
Cost Savings
  Bulk bags are generally less expensive to produce verses a Gaylord box. Bags can be value engineered for example; using narrow lift loops, elimination of document pouches, using an lighter fabric, all while meeting the required 5:1 or 6:1 safety factors.
Handling Gaylord boxes entitles additional labor fees, compensating an employee for time and effort in assembling the box and readying it for a pallet. With a bulk bag, handling time decreases since the bags are readily accessible, no assembly required and can be filled in a shorter amount of time.
2. Benefit of Bulk Bags -
Custom Fit
Bulk bags can be fit to meet your specific application and need, whereas Gaylords have a ridged size. Whether you have a certain pallet size or trailer size to fit, or even a certain cubic foot required for filling, or strength,  bulk bags have it covered. Bags offer adjustable with fill/discharge capabilities, by enlarging the inlet /outlet size, will increase the flow or emptying of the bag, increasing productivity all the way around. Lift loops are also adjustable in length, having the standard size of 10". However, depending on your application, the straps can be any length you require. The lift loops also come in a variety of patterns such as: Cross Corner, Self Standing, Standard Loops, Stevedore Straps and more. And, not only does a bulk bag offer a variety of construction, it out performs a Gaylord box in strength.
3. Benefit of Bulk Bags -
Environmentally Friendly
Bulk bags have the ability to be re-used, which cuts your bag cost in half each time this is achieved. It can be ground up into raw material and recycled into other polypropylene based items, rather than being discarded into a landfill. We have partnered with a list of recycling companies to assist you, please visit: http://www.global-pak.com/recycling
4. Benefit of Bulk Bags -
Space Savers
Bulk bags offer approximately 100-400 empty bags per pallet, depending on the specifications. The amount of bags per pallet drastically decreases the amount of space bulk bags occupy while being stored. Bulk bags can also easily be stacked to save space in the warehouse and trailers.
The minimum quantity per pallet of a Gaylord box is a mere 20-50pcs per pallet. Having such small quantities on a pallet increases pallets in number and reduces warehouse space.
