Press Release Summary: Container Exchanger Wins Accolades from Whitehead Die Casting

Press Release Body: 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.

Troy Cain is General Manager of Whitehead Die Casting Co., Inc. located in
Gainesville, Georgia. Cain recently interviewed said, "We wanted to find good
usable containers from a reputable source without too much risk. We found the
Container Exchanger listing on internet and the web page was very helpful in finding
what we needed."

Sixty percent of the total packaging is now reused and the same percentage comes
from Container Exchanger. Cain noted, "We have been very pleased with the
professionalism and level of service from everyone we have worked with at Container

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.
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.
