If you've been looking for ways to reduce the cost of shipping your products, returnable packaging is a great option to explore. Single-use packaging is a convenient option, however, the costs over time can quickly add up. You have to purchase a steady supply, pay your workers to assemble them, then pay your workers again to break down used or discarded boxes. With returnable packaging, you invest more up front, however, you eliminate these recurring costs and – in the long run – save yourself both time and money.

With countless companies looking for green alternatives to traditional shipping methods, investing in reusable and returnable containers is becoming more and more popular. Capable of being custom-made to fit your products, reusable containers ensure safe delivery by securely holding your products in place, thus preventing damage caused by movement, contact and friction. Especially useful for companies utilizing closed-loop distribution systems, returnable containers are simply unpacked and loaded back on to the delivery trucks, ready for their next shipment.
Automating your production line is a great way to increase productivity, output and employee safety. However, to really take advantage of your newly-automated system, you need precision. Robots, especially, require exactness... the benefits that they afford depend on being able to manipulate, move and maneuver your line's products with pinpoint precision. To achieve that, you need precision every step of the way and, from our point of view, that starts with picking your products up.
With a wide variety of manufacturing capabilities, PolyFlex is your source for dunnage trays, injection molded products and reusable packaging. Whenever we begin a new project, our aim is to find the most affordable, efficient way to achieve the desired results. From using inexpensive materials to lower overall costs to using durable, long-lasting materials that serve as ideal long-term answers, we have the ability to adapt to every client's individual needs. Today, we're going to take a closer look at some of the materials and processes that we employ to deliver on our customers' expectations.
Whether you're concerned about the integrity of your products or the safety of the environment, returnable shipping containers are a cost-efficient and effective solution. Custom made for your products, they are a reliable way to ensure that your products arrive at their destination intact and undamaged. In addition to this, their reusability helps to protect the environment, conserving critical natural resources and reducing overall waste.
Typically, all in-plant processing trays manufacturing by PolyFlex are produced from thermoformed plastic. While we have the ability to create them from other materials, we believe that this material offers the best combination of reliability and cost-efficiency. Ideal for both disposable and reusable trays, thermoformed plastic is a versatile and durable material that is utilized in a variety of industries – from automotive to medical – to reduce internal shipping costs and protect products from damage. In this post, we're going to look at why thermoformed plastic is the best choice for your in-plant processing trays.
