The Problem

Depending on your role in the auto & truck parts industry, you may face challenges related to your packaging and supply chain:

  1. For manufacturers and suppliers, current packaging is often disposable, which is costly and unfriendly to the environment. Made of wood, this packaging is often heavy and awkwardly shaped, making it more difficult to handle for retailers and dealers.
  2. For auto repair shops and dealers who offer products that require refurbishment or a return to the manufacturer during its lifecycle, recovery of these items and delivery requires coordination of complex logistics.

You should not have to worry about creating these programs from scratch.

Reusability has experience designing and developing solutions and is ready to help.

How Reusable Packaging Programs Work

No matter where you are in your reusable journey, our multi-step management process ensures you see the ROI of reusable packaging with as little capital outlay as possible.

1

Packaging Development: If you don't already have reusable packaging, we connect you to one of our design partners who will create options, financial analysis benchmarks, and prototype development of a returnable solution for your products.

Shipment: Once packaging is designed and developed, customers ship their product in reusable packaging, which they own or rent, to their customers (Dealers, OEMs, Distributors, Retailers, Installers) and inform us of where they ship.

Program Benefits

Cost Savings

You’ll reduce the number of units purchased with reusable packaging, and we will handle the processing and pick up. This means you’ll save on labor and logistics cost. On average, our programs have a 13-month payback period.

Reduce Waste

Sustainability is at the heart of many corporations today. Reusable packaging means no more wood going to landfills, less energy used, and less total greenhouse gas emissions.

Safer Choice

You’ll improve your workplace safety by eliminating the workplace injuries experienced with disposable wooden packaging. No more need to build and tear-down single-use packaging or handle broken debris.

Product Protection

Reusable packaging is durable and sturdy, and designed specifically for your product. Moving to reusables reduces the frequent damages that are caused by inconsistent single-use, wooden packaging.

Retailer Network

We currently manage assets that are sent to some of the largest retailers in the world, including The Home Depot, Lowe’s, Sam’s Club and more. We will support you on a national scale when it comes to recovering reusable packaging.

Higher Turns

Our accurate pickups save clients over 30% with faster turnover. The shape of reusable packaging often allows for better utilization of trucks, as units can often be stacked. This means improved logistics and transportation efficiencies, which result in fewer trips and reduced fuel costs.

“…For retailers, environmental concerns are top of mind. Any product brought into stores- in boxes, crates, racks, whatever- they prefer to see that packing material immediately taken away for reuse. I know The Home Depot and Costco have so many environmental concerns, they want solutions so that they do not have to worry about a product’s packaging being put in the dumpster…”
