Container Brands & Minimums

Container Brands & Minimums

We are currently offering containers from the following manufacturers:

  • Brothers
  • Winda + Bright Star
  • Sky Bacon + Realtree
  • Supreme

To allow for flexibility we’ve done away with case minimums and now target < 40 unique items per container load. If you order heavy on an item this frees you up to order a smaller amount of another item. Please request our Container Purchase summary to get more info on the purchasing process. If allocating your purchasing funds to a full container load leaves you with less variety than you prefer, call us and we can talk about our other purchasing programs to find out what will be the best fit.

For additional product needs, container customers will be able to purchase from our Special Order price list.

When ordering a container you will order to fill the container completely, the space inside a container is referred to as CBMs (cubic meters), our order forms will calculate the CBM total. There are 2 sizes of containers.

2 sizes of containers:
