As the logistics industry continues to evolve, innovation is even more crucial as businesses across the UK and the world in general ensure they keep up with the latest advancements in technology and sustainable methods. Exporta are your partner in this evolution.
Exporta are the UK’s first carbon neutral supplier of returnable plastic solutions, and they continue to find ways to help UK businesses innovate by providing new solutions to enhance supply chain efficiency and to improve the finances, and compliance with regulations, of their customers.
Arguably the most vital element of business evolution in 2023 and beyond is sustainability. There are many ways a company can evaluate and innovate its supply chain process to reduce carbon emissions. This includes warehousing techniques and Exporta continue to lead the charge against the traditional packaging products used in the UK, products such as wooden pallets, cardboard boxes, and plastic shrink wrap. By providing sustainable and economical solutions made from recycled plastic to replace these items like plastic pallets, pallet boxes, pallet collars, containers, crates, and much more they aim to revolutionise warehouses and supply chains across all industries within Britain and more widely, Europe.
Returnable plastic solutions are the key to a sustainable circular economy within a business that utilises product handling goods. By replacing a wooden pallet that is easily damaged and contributes to deforestation with a pallet made from recycled plastic that has a longer lifespan any company can take a big step to achieving its own sustainable goals. At Exporta, not only are 98% of the Plastic Pallets in their range made from recycled material, but you can also now recycle the pallets with Exporta at the end of their useful life and be rewarded with credit to spend with them on your next purchase. When Plastic Pallets are recycled, they are ground down in to pellets before being made into fresh pallets, therefore completing their circular lifecycle, and when the pallets are first manufactured for Exporta, plastic waste is utilised such as old bottle caps and containers, waste that may have ended up in harmful locations such as a landfill site or our oceans.
When Exporta talk about sustainability being at the core of their business, they mean it. The company has committed to be Net Zero by 2045. Head of business services at Exporta, Shona Laing explains, ‘We are an environmentally conscious and sustainable thinking company, committed to promoting sustainability across our own operations and helping our customers achieve the same. We have held ISO14001 certification for several years which has allowed us to demonstrate our commitment and compliance. However, we felt that it didn’t take us far enough as we always strive to be a leader in the market. We can see the need in proving that we are an environmentally ethical company and working with Auditel to determine our current Carbon Footprint and put in place a Strategic Carbon Reduction Plan, achieving PAS2060, allows us to do that. It’s one thing to talk the talk, another to walk the walk.’
