They are similar to Gaylord boxes, it’s a cheap, disposable option for bulk materials storage and transportation. One advantage bulk bags have over gaylords, is the storage density when empty. For a bag that is roughly the same size as a Gaylord, you can put 500 empty bags on a single pallet space, while in gaylords, 500 gaylords takes up a whole truck (26 pallet spaces), which means that you pay a lot less freight to receive bulk bags than you would to receive gaylords (the closest competing storage option).”
