Reusable Dunnage and the Case of Ace Manufacturing

Here is hypothetical case study showing the benefits of a reusable dunnage program, reproduced with permission of Paylode.

1. Plastic dunnage looks expensive compared to cardboard – at first sight
2. It may be treated as a capital item – more hoops, more approvals, more time
3. The good news? It’s returnable. The bad news? It’s returnable. There’s a cost to get it back.
