Reusable Transit Packaging for Moving (Page 2)

Continued from Page 1

John Mitchell, sales director at Advanced Crates and sister distribution company Pluscrates explained that the high cost of tooling is very often prohibitive for companies to manufacture their own specialist crates, especially in a developing market. “It simply doesn’t make sense for companies to commit high levels of capital for tooling unless the volumes are sufficiently high to make it viable. With a product like the IT3 that’s unlikely to be the case in a local market and it makes better economic sense to source them from a volume manufacturer like Advanced Crates and put the capital directly into stock.”

Surprisingly RTP has not so far been widely adopted elsewhere in the world and corrugated cardboard has remained the packaging material of choice for most moving companies. However, with ever increasing pressure from governments around the world to reduce waste and the public’s increased awareness and demand for environmentally friendly practices the market for RTP looks set to rocket.
