How do corrugated plastic products help your company?
1. Long-term cost savings, it may seem like a larger up-front cost, or investment, and your operations may not be set up for a return system like this, but companies who are able to close the supply chain loop and return packaging products such as boxes, bins, and slip sheets can realize savings after just a few trips. Depending on the application and the handling situation, you may see as many as 50-60 trips per package. How much would 50 cardboard boxes cost you?
2. Environmental concerns, products that would traditionally be thrown away are now being re-used. Pallets are a perfect example, slip sheets are less expensive, do not take up much space, and are re-usable where pallets are bulky and hard to dispose of. Even corrugated boxes that are recycled create more energy to recycle them than to produce new boxes, and you're creating that situation for every trip you ship something.
3. Safety, many conveyor systems get clogged up with corrugated cardboard that has torn off traditional boxes creating a safety hazard. It also creates down time for your operation to correct the issue. Corrugated plastic is more durable and resistant to tears. Many conveyor systems use our totes to place smaller boxes in so they don't get damaged.
