Get Started

What We Do: From EZR to Reusability

EZR-to-Reusability-1

For 20 years, we’ve pioneered the way that reusable assets are tracked and recovered. First, we saw that nurseries and retailers needed returnable packaging that fit perfectly in trucks. So we worked with them to build our patented EZRack, available to rent or buy.

Those same nurseries and retailers partnered with us to recover racks to lower costs and reduce environmental waste. We built a dedicated national network of over 40 independently owned recovery facilities and have leveraged that network to pick up non-nursery assets from retailers, dealers, and OEMs. We've done over 10,000,000 recoveries for our customers, serving 10,000+ retail locations.

We know manufacturers, retailers and distributors want to move away from single-use packaging but aren’t sure how to go about designing, managing and recovering reusable assets. Our expertise enables us to provide the solutions necessary to make the circular supply chain possible for any company that wants to see the benefits of reusable packaging.

No matter where you are in your reusable packaging journey, we have a customized solution for you.

Design


We partner with the best reusable packaging design firms to develop eco-friendly, durable, and cost-effective packaging for our customers. If you don't have reusable packaging, we leverage our consulting expertise to help in design and development. If you have an existing design but are looking for improvement, we share best practices to enhance your existing design. 

Manage

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.

Recover

Leveraging our expertise in recovery, we handle the management and pick-up of all reusable packaging assets. With our 40+ strategically placed facilities nationwide, we handle all logistics of asset recovery including full inspection and quality assurance. We also assist with refurbishment solutions, product sorting, kitting, repackaging, warehousing, recycling and storage solutions.

Who does a reusable packaging program work best for?

We admire anyone looking to ditch disposable packaging and move to reusables. The following is criteria to help you determine if Reusability is a good fit.

Do you ship large, heavy and/or fragile products in single-use packaging? 
Do you ship more than 1,000 times a year? 
Do you ship your products to multiple locations? 
Do you lack visibility and control over what happens to your products once they’re delivered?

 

If you answered yes to the above, we’d love to speak with you.

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.

2

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 our agents.

Benefits of Working With Us

Cost Savings

Using a single asset management provider saves money by reducing overall packaging costs, product damage, and labor costs. 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 single-use packaging going to landfills, less energy used, and less total greenhouse gas emissions.

Safer Choice

Workplace safety improves when eliminating workplace injuries experienced with disposable 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.

Dedicated Recovery Network

Our nationwide recovery network picks up from some of the largest retailers nationwide. Our customers get laser-sharp focus and expertise from a provider dedicated to recovering 500,000+ reusable packaging assets annually.

Stronger Relationships

Saving money on packaging often passes through in the form of lower retail prices. In addition, your retail and dealer customers no longer incur disposal fees associated with landfilling single-use packaging.

Asset Tracking & Management

We provide real-time reporting for all movement and inventory levels, and results on savings and sustainability. Great visibility allows management to demonstrate the impact of reusable packaging programs.

Full Service and Flexible

We specialize in recovery, consolidation, warehousing, and just-in-time-delivery. Our flexibility enables scalability to respond to seasonality and growth opportunities.

Higher Turns & Efficiencies

Our accurate pickups save clients over 30% with faster asset turns. Reusable packaging often allows for better utilization of trucks, as units can be stacked. This means improved logistics and transportation efficiencies, resulting in fewer trips and reduced fuel costs. 

Sustainability Focused

We know that many companies have ambitious sustainability goals and we want to help you reach them.

We also understand how difficult it is for companies to track their sustainability gains and report them.  That's why we provide our customers with best-in-class sustainability reporting, set up when they launch, and based on metrics important to them such as CO2 saved, tons of waste avoided, and dollars saved.

Testimonials

“…We’ve worked towards moving away from using wood. We really want to avoid it due to price fluctuation. You don’t get the consistency that you’d have with something reusable…”

Manager
Grower/Nursery

“…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…”
