Arlington’s 3 key advantages:

  • Rent when you require: simply hire when you need them and send them back when you’re done
  • No cleaning or risk of contamination of product: the single use liner bags are totally sterile and can simply be put in the bin when finished, with no risk of foreign bodies. Savings in labour time provide another major advantage, with no need for cleaning chemicals or washing (CIP) machines.
  • Collapsible/Space Efficiency: depending on the height of your warehouse, the containers can be stacked up to 20 units high when empty and 5 or 7 high (depending on which 1000L container on a lorry. This provides a major cost and sustainability advantage as it means fewer truck movements and reduces storage space at production sites.

“We were having major issues with high residual waste product left in the pallecon liner bag after discharge. Our supplier at the time was not able to solve these issues, so we reached out to Arlington, who immediately provided a solution and have reduced our residues from an average of 20kg of product per liner bag down to 1.5kg.”
Joanne - European Toothpaste Manufacturer.


“We have worked with Arlington for many years and have always found them competitive and fair to deal with. In particular, we have worked with them to develop new processes as we have expanded our product ranges. I certainly have no plans to change away from this successful partnership in the near future - why would I?”

“As a business, we were caught in a cycle of paying for large repair and compensation costs through our contract renewals. Arlington helped us break that cycle but also helped us address the cause of our excessive damages and losses. We have a multi-site international supply chain. Running our IBC fleet through Arlington has been more productive and less costly than with our previous suppliers.”
Mark - Healthcare manufacturer.
