In addition to the knowledge that used industrial packaging is responsibly handled, EarthMinded LCS offers savings to customers who want to reduce their total cost of packaging ownership. The collection service provides a practical alternative to storing used industrial packages on site or transporting them for disposal, with the attendant trucking costs and disposal fees. The reconditioning operations generate industrial packaging that is sold at a discount to new packaging and consequently re-introduced into the supply chain. Industrial packaging that cannot be remanufactured or reconditioned is properly recycled.
"Another core benefit is time savings for our customers," Lister said. "EarthMinded LCS provides one-stop convenience, giving each customer the ability to manage the industrial packaging needs of one or multiple sites, from the collection of used to the delivery of reconditioned and new industrial packaging.
"While some in the industry may be constrained by their inability to acquire enough used industrial packaging to meet demand, as the world's largest reconditioner we can attract the amount of reusable industrial packaging to maintain a consistent supply. Our customers can be assured that we have the financial and physical resources to serve them well into the future."
