Press Release Body: Container Exchanger (www.containerexchanger.com) is dedicated to the sale and resale of reusable packaging and containers. The firm resells folding bulk containers, metal storage bins, plastic industrial totes, plastic pallets, and used gaylord boxes nationwide. When a company is finished using a returnable packaging fleet, Container Exchanger represents the seller and finds a buyer for the used bulk packaging. Sellers enjoy a high sales price for a better return on investment. Buyers save significantly in comparison to new packaging prices.
David Madden is Founder and President of Container Exchanger (containerexchanger.com), an online marketplace for used returnable packaging systems, such as collapsible bulk containers, metal shipping containers, plastic pallets, and hand totes. Founded in 2005, Madden led the company through the startup phase and into its current status as the definitive one-stop shop for used containers and crates.
Madden started Container Exchanger after five years of Engineering experience in the automotive industry, where Madden’s primary responsibilities revolved around waste reduction. He soon realized that one exceptional source of waste in the automotive business lied in the returnable packaging systems. After the packaging was used for a few years, the packaging was still good, but it was no longer needed. The containers piled up and were often sold for scrap values or less. Madden started Container Exchanger to fill this gap; find retail buyers for these used packaging systems, thereby increasing the money that the containers were sold for, and decreasing packaging acquisition costs for the purchaser.
Madden holds a Bachelors degree in Industrial Engineering from North Carolina State University, an MBA from Georgia Tech, and he received his Black Belt certificate from the DaimlerChrysler Quality Institute.
Returnable packaging reduces waste created by every business. The EarthWorks Group estimates that 30% of landfill waste is created by plastic and paper packaging. The use of cardboard products and other one-time-use packaging products contribute to this waste. Folding bulk containers, industrial totes, and metal storage bins are used over and over again within a facility or between a supplier and a customer. They can be used literally thousands of times. These bulk boxes are much cheaper in the long term when compared to buying cardboard boxes and wood crates every time that product is shipped. Savings can be observed in the per piece packaging cost. While the upfront investment in returnable packaging may cost more, savings can be realized quickly through repeated use (the same bulk containers, metal bins, and totes are used over and over), labor (no more box assembly), material handling (fewer moves from stackable containers), quality (fewer rejects due to damaged packaging), and floor space (plastic and metal containers can stack very high). The per piece packaging costs for used bulk containers and totes can be as low as 5% of the costs for a comparable expendable solution, depending on shipping volumes.
