Intermediate bulk containers (IBC), (IBC toteIBC tank or pallet tanks), are reusable, multi-use industrial container that have been engineered for the mass handling, transport and storage of liquids, pastes or solids.

Intermediate bulk containers are stackable, reusable, versatile containers with an integrated pallet base mount that provides forklift and/or pallet jack maneuverability. IBCs have a volume range that is in-between that of standard shipping drums and inter-modal tank containers ; hence the title: “intermediatebulk containers . These containers can be made from metal, plastic or composite material.

General IBC tank capacities are generally 275 to 330 U.S. gallons.  IBCs are shipping containers that have been UN / DOT certified for the shipping of hazardous and non-hazardous, packing group II and packing group III commodities. Intermediate bulk containers can be manufactured from various materials based on the requirements of the application or service the IBC will be used for. Traditional materials include:

The most widely utilized and known IBC is the limited re-use caged IBC. Caged totes are composite IBCs—a white/translucent plastic container (typically high-density polyethylene) contained and protected by a tubular galvanized steel grid. Caged IBC totes are commonly used due to their low cost, wide compatibility, and versatility.

In addition to the above materials, intermediate bulk containers can also be made of fiberboard, wood, aluminum, and folding plastic. Folding IBCs are also made of heavy plastic. Their sides fold inward when the unit is empty allowing the IBC to collapse into a much smaller package for return shipment or storage. Flexible intermediate bulk containers , made of woven polyethylene or polypropylene bags, are designed for storing or transporting dry, flowable products, such as sand, fertilizer, and plastic granules. Almost all rigid IBCs are designed so they can be stacked vertically one atop the other using a forklift. Most have a built-in tap (valve, spigot, or faucet) at the base of the container to which hoses can be attached, or through which the contents can be poured into smaller containers .
