  1. Auto / Industrial Operations? Reusable Packaging Is An Optimal Choice

    From large bulk storage to handheld totes, reusable plastic packaging and storing is a great choice for your automotive business, parts business, or industrial plant.

    What are some of the benefits of reusable plastic packaging in your operation?

    • Better access to parts at workstations
    • Reduced travel time in warehouses and work areas
    • Reduced loss due to damage
    • Maximized storage space and efficiency

    Here are a few other benefits you may not have thought of, including safety and risk management. Reusable plastic packaging not only reduces damage to inventory and supplies, it also reduces the chance of workplace injuries or mishaps. Efficient stacking and storage methods using containers that are designed for your needs that also reduce weight on pallets.

    Reusable packaging can be an optimal purchase:

    According to a 2019 study published in the journal of sustainability, industrial and systems engineers studied the benefits of reusable packaging for the automotive industry, concluding that they ultimately saved money and preserved the environment for short term, longer term, or permanent use. Customized packaging did save time and money on assembly lines, and according to the study authors, could be an “optimal” purchase decision. For cost and environmental benefits, GM, Hyundai, Chrysler, and Ford all use returnable, reusable plastic packaging.

    Reusable plastic packaging for your business is a smart, sustainable idea that works financially and environmentally.
