GAC Packaging Solutions launch ecologically-friendly & cost-effective packaging solution for liquid & dry cargo transportation.

The 'g-drum' is a reusable, collapsible 208 litre (55 US gallon) drum with a 'bag-in-a-box' design that uses a product-specific flexible internal
liner bag made from 3-ply Food & Pharmaceutical grade polyethelyn (PE) film to store not only liquid cargoes but also for dry flowable or high
viscosity products. Developed and patented by International Liquid Packaging Solutions Pte Ltd (ILPS), g-drums provided by GAC Packaging
Solutions deliver up to 10% savings in overall operational costs compared to traditional steel drums.

As the internal liner bag is changed between each cargo load, the risk of contamination of sensitive commodities such as foodstuffs, pharmaceuticals or chemicals is significantly reduced. Customers also benefit from lower operating costs as g-drum eliminates the need for pre-conditioning and post-cleaning disposal, and reduces responsible care premiums.

GAC Packaging Solutions rents out the g-drum units on a contract basis, providing complete supply chain management. It is responsible for
delivering the drums to suppliers for loading, collecting them once loaded, shipping the loaded units to the end-user and finally collecting
the empty, collapsed drums and returning them to the original loading points. GAC Packaging Solutions also manages all documentation and
provides track and trace monitoring throughout.

Johan Andersson, Acting Managing Director of GAC Packaging Solutions, says: "g-drum is a simple solution to a complex problem, but sometimes the simplest solutions are the best ones."
