Returnable Boxes Solution – Case Study

Returnable Boxes Solution – Case Study

The Customer 

Our Burton on Trent based customer is a leading partner for testing, inspection and certifications services with comprehensive solutions in Infrastructure, Environment, Building & Real Estate and Advisory.  


The Challenge 

In this situation, what was required was boxes that the customer could send to site and get returned for re-use. The ideal solution being returnable boxes with a long-life span.  

Sustainability was also an important factor to consider. With Exporta being the The UK’s 1st Carbon Neutral Plastic Pallet Supplier, we’ve taken the next step on our journey to Net Zero by confirming our Verified Carbon Neutral status. We are known and trusted for our sustainable solutions in the product handling industry, now, we have taken the next step. Working with Auditel we have been able to identify, demonstrate and strategically execute on our commitment to Sustainability and Net Zero.  


The Solution 

After discussing the needs of the reusable boxes with the customer, we provided a solution of Embossed Euro Containers. We produce 5000 at a time, hold in stock and the customer calls off in pallet quantities for next day delivery when required. This was a solution that worked very well for them. 

Of the last 5000 ordered, there has only been 10 breaks in a year – much better than previous Attached Lid Containers they were using. 

Boxes transport empty bottles in and out to site all over the country by APC carriers and return within 3-4 weeks. It’s a continuous pool system, the boxes get harsh treatment, so to have only experienced 10 breaks in a year is a testament to the durability and quality of the boxes.
