The chainflex® CASE is not just a solution for delivering cables. It is a way of storing and re-ordering cables too.
A QR code makes it easy for you to re-order the cables, 60% faster and can allow you to be in control of scheduling the goods.
In regards to delivery, it is 84% more cost-effective shipping with UPS standard as opposed to on a pallet. With UPS, delivery is made within 1-2 business days.
With the design, the CASE allows you to stack up to three boxes safely so no extra storage system or drum unreeler necessary
