Reusable Cable Reels and Drums for Sustainable Shipping

Discover how to reinvent the supply chain of your cable reels and industrial spools, for improved operations and a reduced carbon footprint.

Reel and spool packaging is needed for a variety of industries, from wire and cable manufacturers, to rope manufacturers, to telecommunications materials manufacturers. From chains to fiber-optic cables, to ropes, industrial drums and spools are needed for company operations everywhere – On docks for freight, or in a construction yard for new buildings.

The opportunities for sustainable supply chains are vast for these kinds of packaging, but are mostly underutilized. This is leaving companies below the increasing standard for sustainable operations.

The Problem

The harsh disposal process of industrial spools and reels involves:

High operating costs in terms of labor and energy

Putting employees at risk for workplace injuries, from handling and breaking down the reel and spool materials for disposal

Not to mention- End-users usually break metal and wooden reels down and burn or dispose of them in landfills; a detrimental action to the environment.

The Solution

The good news is, there is a greater opportunity right now more than ever for reusable solutions in this industry:

Technavio predicts the global reels and spools market to post a CAGR of over 4% during the period 2019-2023.

Alongside this impressive estimated industry growth, most types of reels and spools can be reused, which would save companies material procurement costs, labor costs and limit their environmental impact.

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.


Status Confirmation: We leverage our proprietary software to email, text, or call locations to confirm that empty packaging is ready for pickup and dispatch to our agents.



Packaging Recovery: Our agents recover empty packaging along specified routes and return it to regional facilities.


Repackaging and Quality Control: We consolidate shipments at our regional facilities, inspect for damage, and repair per your custom requirements.



Return: We return packaging to our customers, generally in full truckload quantities, ready to be used again.
