Press Release Summary: FLSmidth/Krebs Values Reusable Packaging from Container

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 ( 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.
