The durability of VRC's laundry roll containers: 10 years strong under normal use

As a buyer in the laundry industry, you undoubtedly understand that efficient logistics is crucial. This comprehensive guide is specially designed to guide you in selecting the right roll containers for smooth logistics operations within your warehouse or during transport.

Important Logistical Aspects:

1.1 Fencing options:

  • Wire Mesh Fences: Provide ventilation and visibility, ideal for inventory control.
  • Mesh size: A narrow mesh size between the wires in a fence promotes the robustness of the container but does make it heavier. Wide mesh is acceptable for bedding, but smaller items may fall through.
  • Closed gates: Suitable for the safe transport of smaller items.

1.2 Height of Rolling Containers:

  • Standard height: Versatile for various logistics applications and cross-usage.
  • High model: Handy for transporting long textile pieces without wrinkles.

1.3 Wheel selection:

  • Swivel castors with brakes: Increased maneuverability and locking for stability.
  • Low-noise wheels: Reduce noise pollution during transport.
  • Wheel size: important for the load capacity of the roll container in question. 

1.4 Placement and type of fence:

  • Closeability: Should the container be able to close completely? Then choose a roll container with a fence at the front or multi-use platforms.
  • Multi-usability Platforms. Some platforms can also serve as a front gate thanks to a smart multifunctional solution. This may be an ideal option for your processes.
  • No fence = Lashing straps: Colour, design, material. Important addition for most non-sealable containers. 
  • Front gate position:
  • Type of front gate: Front gates are often foldable, but there are also door gates available that open sideways and can be secured. These are mainly used in roll containers that are wider than they are deep.

1.5 Modular = future proof

  • Parts of roll containers with a modular structure can be replaced more quickly. Many models are therefore modular in design these days. A good consideration for an environment where a roll container could become dented over the years.

Logistic Efficiency Consider:

2.1 Handling:

  • Choose rolling containers with ergonomic handles for easy maneuvering.
  • Foot plates: Step or foot plates are ideal for lifting the front for thresholds and curbs.
  • Folding coupling: Move multiple roll containers at once by connecting them with a coupling system. 

2.2 Compatibility with Trucks:

  • Make sure that the selected roll containers fit the loading space of the trucks used. 
  • Also make use of the maximum height in the loading space. 

2.3 Sustainability:

  • Invest in sustainable materials to minimize wear and damage during logistics operations.

2.4 Nestability:

  • Space-saving thanks to the foldable design. Not common in the market, but ideal for a smaller laundry with large peak times. 

Brand & Customization

3.1 Quality represents your laundry:

  • Rolling containers are an important part of the daily operations of a laundry. A recognizable quality roll container that suits the working method of your laundry is a calling card for the work you do.

3.2 Use of color

  • Especially in larger series, it is possible to order nameplates, document holders, quick-release fasteners and even wheels in the color of your laundry. In combination with point 3.1 you will build a beautiful sign for your laundry. 


A well-considered selection of rolling containers, taking into account logistical aspects such as construction, handling and truck compatibility, will significantly improve the efficiency of your logistics processes. Look for providers that offer solutions that integrate seamlessly into your logistics workflow.
