  • Patent number: 4697731
    Abstract: A collapsible, bulk shipping container with a take-out front panel that is made up of an inverted tray-type rectangular bottom, a collapsible three-sided body, one end of which is telescopically received in the tray-type bottom, and a removable take-out front panel that forms a tubular body with the three-sided body. The collapsible three-sided body is collapsible from a fully open position, in which it is U-shaped in configuration and in which it and the removable take-out panel form a tubular body which fills the tray-type bottom, into a collapsed condition in which it lies against one side of the tray-type bottom, one side of the collapsible three-sided body, the middle side, being secured to one side of the tray-type bottom. When the collapsible three-sided body has been collapsed, it can be folded over to lie against the tray-type bottom in a compact configuration for ease of the shipment or storage of at least these components of the bulk shipping container.

  • Patent number: 4693411
    Abstract: A collapsible, bulk shipping container that is made up of an inverted tray-type rectangular bottom and a pair of collapsible body elements, one end of each of which is telescopically received in the tray-type bottom. The collapsible body elements collectively form the body of the container and each is collapsible from a fully open position, in which they cooperate to form the container body and fill the tray-type bottom, into a collapsed condition in which the first lies against one side of the tray-type bottom, and the second lies in superimposed relationship on the first collapsible body element, each collapsible body element being secured to one side of the tray-type bottom. When the collapsible body elements have been collapsed, they can be folded over to lie in superimposed relationship above the tray-type bottom in a compact configuration for ease of the shipment or storage of the bulk shipping container.

  • Patent number: 4691859
    Abstract: A collapsible, bulk shipping container that is made up of an inverted tray-type rectangular bottom and a collapsible tubular body, one end of which is telescopically received in the tray-type bottom. The collapsible tubular body is collapsible from a fully open position, in which it is rectangular in configuration and in which it fills the tray-type bottom, into a collapsed condition in which it lies against one side of the tray-type bottom, one side of the collapsible tubular body being secured to one side of the tray-type bottom. When the collapsible tubular body has been collapsed, it can be folded over to lie against the tray-type bottom in a compact configuration for ease of the shipment or storage of the bulk shipping container. The tray-type bottom is preferably formed from a unitary blank of corrugated fiberboard, and the collapsible tubular body is preferably formed from a pair of corrugated fiberboard sheets which are joined to one another in an end to end arrangement.
