Types of returnable packaging II: Metal Packagings

Although less used than other packaging materials such as wood or plastic, metal has a number of properties that make it an interesting packaging for transport.

From the point of view of protection, metal packaging stands out for its durability and resistance, being a guarantee in the case of goods that have to undergo long periods of storage and transport. For this reason, metal packaging is common in the automotive industry.

 

From the point of view of sustainability, metal is 100% reusable and recyclable, and its properties remain unchanged for a long time. In fact, it is estimated that 80% of all metals ever produced are still preserved. This makes it an option to consider when evaluating it as a returnable packaging.

 

The most frequently used returnable metal packaging on the market are:

  • Reusable metal packaging.

Removable metal crate or cage, made entirely of metal. Composed of sheet metal sides and metal base designed for stacking. It offers high mechanical resistance and resistance to high temperatures. It is dismountable and allows a high reusability.

  • Modular metal box.

Enclosed metal trolley ideal for packing, transporting and storing cabling and equipment. The interior of the box is modular, which means that the accessories can be placed without tools on the rails adapted for this purpose and on four different levels. It can be opened on both sides without tools and is stackable.

Not all returnable packaging is cost-effective for all companies. Contact packaging professionals to see if it is feasible to replace your current packaging with returnable packaging to optimize your supply chain.

Circular Packaging for a New Cycle

It is a fact that the intensive use of natural resources and the volume of waste we generate have a huge environmental impact. It is also a fact that through a Circular Economy we can transform our throwaway model into a new, more balanced and respectful production system, able to provide value thanks to continuous and regenerative cycles.

At 360 Eco Packaging we are contributing to a sustainable economic model.

Our company has spent years helping companies in a wide variety of sectors to be more productive and reduce their environmental footprint through efficient, sustainable and profitable packaging systems.

And we do this from a circular perspective based on three principles:

  • Reduce and valorize our resources.

Our raw materials come from certified sustainable sources, as well as from our own manufacturing surpluses. We also apply circular designs to our packaging solutions, based on technical, economic and ecological feasibility diagnoses.

  • Extending the useful life of our products.

We manufacture returnable packaging that can be reused and recycled by companies, allowing them to save costs, produce less waste and optimize their logistics processes.

  • Identify opportunities for improvement in the supply chain of our customers.

We provide an advisory service and optimization of packaging processes, creating circular packaging solutions for every need.

With this work philosophy we have developed patents in returnable packaging, such as our Clipping Crate® and obtained certifications in ISO9001, PEFC/FSC chain of custody and ISPM15 (phytosanitary regulations for export), among others.

We also participate as a member of the Subcommittee CTN 192 SC 03 (UNE/ISO) in the development of a new regulation in the field of transport of dangerous goods, together with AENOR and the Ministry of Industry. We also belong to the board of directors of the Innovation Club in Asturias and collaborate in the development of new projects with leading technology centers and companies such as AIDIMME and Aglae.

 

For our company, being sustainable has become a competitive advantage.

For this reason, we want to share our knowledge and experience with companies and professionals who are still unaware of the benefits of the circular economy or are wondering how to implement a circular strategy in their packaging systems.

We want this blog to serve as a meeting point where we can provide resources on trends, regulations, programs and success stories that facilitate the practical application of a circular economy.

The future will be circular. And as in every cycle, there is always a starting point.

We hope that each post will be a source of inspiration that helps to see packaging in a different way.
