Press Release Summary: Container Exchanger Improves Packaging Quality with Used Bulk

Press Release Body: David Madden, President of Container Exchanger, recently
reported that, "Returnable packaging improves packaging quality due to fewer rejects
from damaged packaging. The result is increased customer satisfaction, fewer
reshipments, and cost containment. These lean manufacturing and distribution
metrics are quantifiable and makes this environmentally sound decision a good
business choice as well."

Container Exchanger is an online marketplace that offers manufacturing and
distribution businesses an outlet for procuring or selling used returnable
packaging. The product offerings include many standard and common reusable packaging
solutions, including but not limited to plastic totes, plastic collapsible bulk
boxes, metal containers, wire baskets, and plastic pallets. Launched in 2005, has empowered companies to reduce packaging acquisition costs
through access to used returnable packaging inventories and it has enabled companies
to maximize return during disposal of their used packaging fleets.

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. 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.
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).
Container Exchanger ( 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.
