Whether you’re concerned about the integrity of your products or the safety of the environment, returnable shipping containers are a cost-efficient and effective solution. Custom made for your products, they are a reliable way to ensure that your products arrive at their destination intact and undamaged. In addition to this, their reusability helps to protect the environment, conserving critical natural resources and reducing overall waste. To add some perspective, for every 20 pounds of waste – cardboard boxes, plastic packaging, and so forth – that you eliminate, you will save one gallon of gas. While this may seem miniscule, imagine if every operator in your industry did the same… the effects on our environment would be far-reaching and substantial. In light of these facts, we’re going to take a closer look at the benefits of using returnable shipping containers.
Fewer products damaged in transit
As returnable shipping containers are custom manufactured to your specifications, you can be confident that they will hold your products securely. As a result, you can count on your products being well-protected and arriving in pristine condition.
Reduced long-term costs
Though the immediate cost may be more, the long-term savings that you experience with returnable containers makes up for the investment. Without needing to purchase new disposable materials with every shipment, you will reduce your overall shipping costs.
Less labor per shipment
Since they don’t need to be broken down or disposed of, returnable shipping containers are a great way to reduce the amount of labor – and time – expended per shipment.
