The extensive range of SSI SCHAEFER storage, order picking and transport containers started with the invention of the revolutionary open front container in 1953 and now includes more than 2,000 different types, models and sizes. All our developments draw on over 60 years of knowledge alongside practical experiences and usage in genuine operational conditions. 

The container and storage boxes from SSI SCHAEFER are designed in such a way that they can easily be integrated into any existing operation, whether that be a storage or transport application. Our containers and boxes can be implemented within existing shelving units and can be integrated into all SSI SCHAEFER shelving systems without any problems.
