reusable transport packaging is a sustainable and cost-effective choice for businesses

Reusable Transport Packaging – a Sustainable and Cost-Effective Option

Moving goods from one place to another is the essence of the global trade – the backbone of the economy in all countries. And reusable transport packaging is the essential link in the global supply chain for all stakeholders, from manufacturers to distributors and retailers.

At Logistic Packaging, we believe in ongoing innovation and solving the customers’ problems through our packaging solutions. When we create standard or customized reusable transport packaging materials, we focus on providing the following benefits to companies:

1. Reliability

Large foldable containers or smaller stack-nest containers have a heavy build, designed to withstand intensive use. Products undergo standard endurance tests before we add them to our catalog.

Robust build is essential during transportation of goods. The roads are not always in good condition and various employees do not always handle the containers carefully. Thus, goods in transit are at a high risk of suffering damages that would make them inadequate for selling. Thus, choosing reusable transport packaging helps companies reduce operational losses.

2. Cost Optimization

Reusable packaging helps companies save money in many ways. First of all, these packages have a long lifespan. One plastic container outlasts hundreds of wooden crates. Also, due to the quality of the materials and solid build, these containers do not get damaged easily and are easy to wash and sanitize.

These translate into a low total cost of ownership (TCO) for companies. Moreover, at the end of the lifespan, the packages can be recycled in proportion of 100%, so businesses do not have to pay the extra cost of eliminating them.

3. Labor Efficiency

Our company designs reusable packaging containers both for humans and for robots. The returnable packaging containers and crates have design features that facilitate handling by robotic arms in automated production facilities.

But they also have ergonomic features, such as integrated handles, that help employees get a good grip and carry the empty or loaded boxes with ease. This helps make labor more efficient and prevents workplace accidents.

4. Sustainability

The future of the supply chain must be sustainable. All businesses and their suppliers must work together to reduce waste and manage the natural resources more responsibly. This approach to global trade and business is not only responsible, but also beneficial for companies.

According to a survey conducted by DNV, a specialized assurance and risk management company, 34% of businesses have already experienced cost savings by embracing sustainable policies and 40% more businesses expect to experience these savings within a year.

Returnable transport packaging solutions are a key part of sustainable business practices. These packaging materials are made from a byproduct of oil processing, which otherwise would go to waste. They can be used for several years and, at the end of the lifespan, are fully recyclable.

5. Space Saving

Storage space in warehouses and in stores is extremely valuable. Businesses must find the best use for every cubic meter, so one of the main problems is finding space for empty returnable packaging materials.

Many reusable transport containers and crates in our standard catalog are foldable or collapsible. Thus, when they are not loaded with products, their volume can reduce by up to 70%.

The space saving capability is also useful for saving costs on return logistics, when your company needs to recover empty packages from clients. What is more, the folding mechanism of these containers is very simple. Only one employee can easily set up or fold down a container with ease.

Logistic Packaging is committed to helping all businesses implement sustainable and cost-effective returnable transport packaging. We encourage you to send us an email to start discussing your packaging application with our specialists!
