      How much will it cost me to have big bags transported?

      How do I optimally prepare big bags for transport?

      To ensure that your big bags and the contents can be transported properly, you should observe the following:

      1. Please use only certified big bags for transportation, which you have stored protected from light. Because UV radiation can make the material porous and cracked. Also, do not reuse big bags that are designed for one-time use only.
      2. Please place the big bags on a pallet so that they can be loaded, transported and unloaded more easily. In certain cases, it is also necessary to ground the big bags before you fill them.
      3. Please do not fill the big bags with liquids, as the bags are not designed for this and are not waterproof.
      4. When filling the big bags, observe their maximum filling weight, which is indicated on their outside.
      5. Please load the big bags only evenly.
      6. After filling, be sure to close the big bags tightly from the top.
      7. Use either a forklift or a big bag transport cart to transport the big bags to the curb.

      Cargoboard is always at your disposal to advise you on the necessary steps. In addition, if you have any questions about shipping costs or packaging safe for transport, we will be happy to answer them.

      What are big bags used for?

      Since big bags are made of durable plastic fabrics, they are very suitable for carrying a variety of materials, such as gravel, sand, stone, bulk material, seeds, granules, pellets, dust, flour, salt, or even large products.


      Due to the material and their volume, you can fill big bags from 500 kg to 2,000 kg. The respective maximum filling weight is written on the outside of the big bag.

      How many big bags fit on one truck?

      The number of big bags you can transport with a truck depends on both the volume and filling load of the bags and the size of the truck.


      In a box truck, for example, it is possible to transport 44 big bags, each with a volume of 1.4 m³, because you can stack them on top of each other in the truck.


      Big bags with a larger volume should not be stacked on top of each other.

      Are the big bags insured when Cargoboard transports them?
