Things to Consider

Cross-Reference Alternatives

Akro-Mils part numbers often cross-individual reference to the equivalent Quantum Storage and Lewisbins part numbers. So, if you're looking for a competitor bin that is either out of stock or obsolete, chances are we have the equivalent Akro-Mils item available.

Shipping

Akro-Mils products on average tend to be bulky and not suitable for courier shipment. Bins ship in a case of 6 pieces and do not fit inside each other so dimensional weight is high. Other products such as bin cabinets and carts will ship strapped to pallets and are suitable for air or sea freight.
