A mesh container is a collapsible crate with a mesh (net) structure on its surface. It is similar in shape to the mesh pallets used in the logistics industry. It is used for loading and transporting harvested goods in the agricultural industry. Another similar type is the steel container.
Metal collapsible crates should be used when loading heavy fruits and vegetables, such as cabbage and squash. In addition, plastic ones feature of being inexpensive and easy to obtain.
Collapsible crates are mainly used for transporting and storing agricultural products. They are mainly suitable for heavy items such as potatoes, onions, cabbage, and squash. By using inner lining material (net), it can also be used for small grains such as rice, wheat, and soybeans.
There are two types of containers: assembled containers in which each side is connected by pins or handles, and integrated containers in which each side is connected by coils. Both can be folded and stacked for compact storage when not in use. Even when unfolded, they can be stacked several layers high.
Collapsible crates can be used to load vegetables harvested in the field and ship them directly to processing plants. This has the great advantage of improving work efficiency by eliminating the need for repacking and reducing the cost of materials, such as corrugated cardboard.
The mesh structure of the container provides high air permeability, preventing corrosion and spoilage of the contents. The structure of the collapsible crate also reduces the area of the container wall that is in contact with the contents and the load applied, thereby reducing the damage caused by packing in the container.
They are easy to assemble and fold up when not in use, and containers of the same size can be stacked for compact storage.
Large metal collapsible crates are suitable for storing, drying, and transporting large agricultural products. Smaller plastic collapsible crates are easy to maneuver and can be used on a small scale, from harvesting, sorting, and transporting to placing the produce in the store as a commodity, making them highly efficient.
