If you’re looking to cut costs, reduce labor, and protect the environment, returnable shipping containers are a great way to secure your products. Even better, the customizability of these containers can help you ensure that your products are safely packaged and protected from damage during transit. More and more, companies are moving toward sustainable and environmentally friendly options. When compared to disposable solutions, reusable containers can help you reduce waste and gas usage, as it’s estimated that for every 20 pounds of waste you eliminate, you save a gallon of gas. In today’s post, we’re going to look at the advantages of using returnable shipping containers in your operation.
Although the initial, upfront cost is higher, returnable shipping containers save you money in the long run. Without the need to reorder replacements and maintain a stock of disposable containers, you eliminate both an ongoing cost and, more importantly, an ongoing headache.
How much time do your employees currently spend breaking down and disposing of boxes? If you eliminate that need, you reduce labor costs and – even better – free your employees up to pursue more productive, profitable tasks.
Save the environment
Of course, one of the biggest benefits of reusable containers is their positive impact on the environment. By eliminating waste and reducing your reliance on disposable solutions, you take large, meaningful steps toward preserving the health of our planet.
