by John Nixon, on September 9, 2021

Reusability is proud to announce that we are the recipients of the 2021 Excellence in Reusable Packaging award, recognizing the great work we have done with Thermo King. Each year, the Reusable Packaging Association convenes a panel of experts to bestow their top honor to  organizations that have implemented effective and impactful reusable packaging solutions.

Excellence in Reusable Packaging Award“With this reusable packaging solution, we have realized nearly $1 million in annual savings on packaging,” said Bruce Day, Plant Manager for Thermo King’s Hastings, Nebraska manufacturing facility. “Adopting this reusable solution has eliminated the need to landfill packaging after use, reduced labor costs, created a safer environment for team members, and improved product protection.”
