VDA KLT stackable plastic containers

VDA KLT small load carriers are a particular category of stackable boxes made from injected plastic.

They are designed and produced according to the VDA German standard for the automotive industry, subject to a set of 4,500 norms established for transporting goods between manufacturers, service providers and car suppliers.

Design and color may differ, but their size is strictly determined for Euro container compatibility.

This series of containers were standardized and optimized for the handling of components in car manufacturing:

  • VDA R-KLT containers – reinforced base
  • VDA RL-KLT containers – smooth base, water drainage holes
  • VDA F-KLT containers – foldable/ collapsible walls
  • VDA M-KLT containers – for medium-weight products
  • VDA C-KLT containers – reinforced base for heavyweight products
  • VDA L-KLT containers – long-sized for components with atypical shapes

Nowadays, they are indispensable for the automotive industry’s production, storage, logistics and assembly lines.

Providing a good grip for both human and automated handling is also an essential trait in this industry.

As automotive is a very dynamic field, these totes were created based on a standard that aims to:

  • Maximize production efficiency, no matter the segment (components production or car assembly)
  • Decrease the load weight and increase the volume for ergonomic manual handling (crucial for the packaging and unloading of some products)
  • Reduce losses (cut costs and reduce waste)
  • Increase production volume and delivery flow
  • Reduce the number of final products returned because of fabrication problems
  • Develop an ergonomic work environment
  • Swiftly match Euro pallets and trolleys or dollies
  • Implement a standard packaging system within the industry, given the large number of providers coming together in all the different and ever-changing configurations.

VDA boxes are always produced from high-quality materials and comply with the standards for design, color, load norms and accessories.

They are durable, have a long lifespan, are incredibly sturdy and resistant to shocks. This is vital for sensitive parts going through fast transit in large volumes.

The straight walls provide generous internal space, optimizing both interior storage and exterior vertical pallet space.

The KLT containers for the automotive industry can be safely stacked with or without lids and are compatible with any Euro container. The exterior edge helps with stack stability and eliminates the need for additional securing or strapping of the load.

Handling (manual or automated) is done using specially designed ergonomic handles. The base ensures complete compatibility with conveyor lines. Due to the lifting shafts and grooves, robots can grip both vertically and horizontally, from the sides or corners. The design of the containers allows for a mix of automated and manual handling.

They can be placed on superimposed plastic pallets by using a pallet lid to protect the contents. This is very practical, speeds up reception procedures on arrival, and the sturdy pallet cover perfectly protects products. The stack doesn’t need extra strapping for stability.

The VDA KLT crates resist temperatures between -20˚C and 100˚C, are UV stable, can be easily washed due to the smooth inside walls, and provide a neat aspect.

Labels can be easily cleaned and replaced to keep operators well-informed on the crate contents, thus avoiding any mistakes.

By complying with VDA standards, KLT small load carriers have a standard weight, allowing the quickest possible weighing of their contents. A shorter time for delivery contributes to an improved logistics chain.

They are a sustainable option for automotive packaging, and at the end of their service life, they are entirely recyclable, further reducing the carbon footprint and industrial waste.

KLT VDA containers can be fitted with a wide array of accessories and combined with other logistic solutions:

  • Lids and covers
  • Internal dividers and separators from foam, EPP, textile material, corrugated or rigid plastic, Duraflex, Triplex etc.
  • Interlayers and trays
  • Label holders
  • Straps and seals
  • Pallets
  • Trolleys and dollies
  • Containers, Kanban racking

They can be used for many transport cycles, reducing costs and waste.

Due to their modular base size, transport and storage can be mixed with any Euro container.
