Reusable Transport Packaging: The Benefits

ORBIS Europe develops and manufactures reusable transport packaging for different industries and applications. We create added values and help you move your products in a fast, safe and cost-effective way. At ORBIS, this starts when manufacturing our sustainable packaging solutions. Due to our innovative manufacturing process, ORBIS reusable FLCs and pallets are extremely robust and offer high weight capacities. We use recycled plastics during production, reducing CO2 emissions significantly according to a calculation with the Walmart Gigaton Calculator. With a long service life and significant cost savings due to foldable and/or stackable designs, returnable transport packaging improves the Return on Investment. ORBIS offers a comprehensive recycling program for the efficient recovery of your obsolete packaging. By design, returnable packaging containers can be fully recycled and reprocessed into new packaging products – without entering the solid waste stream. This enables significant source reduction.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Reusable Transport Packaging

    Why is sustainable transport important?

    As leading companies extend their sustainability initiatives, they also look at how their products are transported. The transportation of goods is responsible for a significant portion of global greenhouse gas emissions. That is why it is crucial for companies to review and optimise every point of their supply chain – and make the transport as sustainable as possible. There are several ways for improvement: Use of low-emission means of transportation, space optimization of truck loads and more. Transport packaging plays a critical role in establishing sustainable supply chains. By choosing efficient and returnable transport packaging, companies reduce waste and lower their environmental impact.

    What kind of reusable packaging does ORBIS Europe offer?

    ORBIS Europe is specialised in developing and manufacturing returnable packaging containers. Our customers profit from a broad product portfolio: foldable large containers, heavy-duty bins with cover, extended length containers for large components, custom load carriers, stackable transport boxes and more. Due to the special manufacturing process, our plastic FLCs offer a long service life, durability and a relatively low tare weight at the same time. The reusable packaging containers are available in different footprints and can be adapted to you supply chain using dunnage, interior packaging and identification options. In order to meet our customer’s needs, we also develop project-specific packaging solutions. Besides foldable plastic containers, we offer robust plastic pallets for food & beverage applications. Just as our plastic FLCs, our returnable pallets are extremely durable and robust. Our packaging experts can support you in finding the right reusable packaging solution for your supply chain.

    How can ORBIS’ reusable transport packaging solutions optimise my supply chain?

    With ORBIS packaging solutions, the benefits for your supply chain start with the special manufacturing process. The innovative process makes our sustainable transport packaging robust and durable. Using recycled materials in production saves large quantities of CO2. Every supply chain is different. That is why ORBIS offers reusable packaging containers in a variety of dimensions. With standard European and American footprints, our returnable packaging is compatible with existing supply chains. Over a long service life, customers profit from significant cost savings during storage and transport: High weight capacities, an efficient return ratio and a stackable design lead to optimised space utilisation in warehouses and trucks. Reusable transport packaging offers improved workplace safety, easy handling and quick maintenance without special tooling. A buyback option at the end of the service life brings additional cost advantages. Plastic raw materials are fully recycled and used to produce new packaging solutions.

    How can ORBIS ensure the high quality of plastic boxes and pallets?

    We only offer high-quality, robust and sustainable transport packaging. That is why we regularly test our packaging solutions in our own Innovation Center in the US or at independent testing institutes. The test capabilities include sled tests, drop test, compression tables, climatic chambers and more. We conduct additional quality tests of sample and serial containers before and during production. At ORBIS, market orientation is paramount: We develop customer-specific, reusable packaging solutions that are adapted to the customer’s product and supply chain. The plastic raw materials used for production are recyclable to enable source reduction.
