Cost Savings with Reusable Packaging
Reusable packaging reduces supply chain costs in a variety of ways:
Standardized designs optimize stacking efficiency, for higher transport and storage space utilization - both empty and filled with product.
Designed to optimize both manual and mechanical handling (i.e. forklifts), reusable packaging reduces the time needed to perform supply chain activities.
Sturdy reusable packaging reduces product damage during transit and handling, and ventilation helps keep perishable items fresher.
Reusable packaging eliminates hazards such as box cutting, staples, exposed nails, or packaging debris that can lead to injuries.
Lower packaging costs
The extended life of reusable packaging (measured in years) results in lower cost per use than single-use packaging.
Reduced packaging waste
Reusables generate less waste than single-use packaging, resulting in lower disposal fees and labor.
