The Problem

Companies specializing in producing HVAC equipment have started to embrace the benefits of reusable packaging programs. However, many still use disposable wooden packaging that is heavy, awkwardly shaped, and costs a lot to make. Other problems of disposable wooden packaging include safety issues at the build and tear down, product damage due to the low durability of disposable packaging, customer costs of landfilling waste, environmental and sustainability issues, and frequent transportation trips, which compound costs.

You should not have to worry about solving these problems alone. 

Reusability has experience designing and developing reusable packaging programs that solve these challenges for you.

HVAC Problem

The Solution

We help HVAC manufacturers and suppliers convert from disposable packaging to reusable packaging for shipments to OEMs, dealers, and retailers. With our depth of experience in managing and recovering assets, we leverage this expertise to develop a customized reusable packaging program that fits your needs.  We've worked with HVAC manufacturers to see tremendous savings and sustainability impact, including one of our clients who is seeing almost $1,000,000 and 2,000 tons of solid waste to landfills saved annually. We know what it takes to design and manage a reusable packaging program, and we are ready to do the same for you.

When our partners ship their reusable packaging to retailers and dealers, our proprietary software enables them to track and manage their assets and see the economic and environmental impact of their reusable packaging programs.

 

We manage hundreds of thousands of our own assets so we know what it takes to manage successful programs.

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.

Less 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, packaging. For an expensive product like HVAC units, this can mean significant cost savings.

Customer Benefits

Dealer partners no longer have to incur disposal fees associated with landfilling wood packaging. In addition, dealers do not have to tear down packaging for collection, which equates to significant time savings. It's a win-win for both you and your customers!

Higher Turns & Efficiencies

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.
