Press Release Summary: FLSmidth/Krebs Values Reusable Packaging from Container Exchanger
Press Release Body: Danny Mendoza is a Special Projects Manager for FLSmidth/Krebs and shared that, "I was in charge of inventory at the time I first ordered reused containers and I knew I needed a number of these and needed to keep the costs down. The fact that the containers were used, in good condition, and less money than buying new, got my attention. I was searching the internet and I found Container Exchangers and saw the vast choices of sizes, costs and locations."
A Great experience with Container Exchanger
Mendoza noted, "After the first receipt of material, I was pleased with the responses by Container as to whether I received the materials and if the conditions were satisfactory. 100 % of my purchases have been through Container Exchanger."
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. 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.
