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.

Types of Returnable Packaging (I): Wooden Packaging

Returnable packaging is a solution that more and more companies incorporate into their supply chain for its environmental and economic benefits.

Depending on the material, we can classify the different types of returnable packaging into three groups: wood, metal and plastic.
In this post we describe the most common returnable wooden packaging and its advantages.

 

Advantages of wood as returnable Packaging

Due to its strength, wood continues to be one of the most widely used materials in packaging for the transport of large or heavy goods. It also acts as a thermal and acoustic insulator and is highly resistant to fire. It is a durable, reusable and 100% recyclable material.

For this reason, wood packaging is considered one of the most sustainable and highest quality for export.
In this regard, it should be remembered that wood packaging for export is regulated under the International Standard for Phytosanitary Measures ISPM-15, which requires treatment to prevent pests.
