4 Ways Crate Rental Can Help Your Business Save Money

17/04/2023

As we all know, the cost-of-living crisis is affecting all aspects of the supply chain; as a result, businesses are conducting comprehensive assessments of all aspects of their operations to determine how to cut costs as prices continue to rise.

Whether your company specialises in food production, retail, manufacturing, or aquaculture, reviewing the packaging solutions it uses to store and transport goods could provide a quick cost-cutting solution.
PPS specialises in crate rental, washing, and repair. Because of our circular economy, we are a much more sustainable solution for your company. With our rates, renting is a much more cost-effective option than purchasing equipment.

More cost-effective

Ditch the single-use packaging to reduce waste disposal costs and reduce your carbon footprint.
Returnable transit packaging can save you thousands when compared to single-use packaging, whilst our rental and pooling services mean you negate the upfront cost of buying your own RTP.

Reduce waste disposal costs.

As we all know cardboard boxes don’t last long after repeated use. Boxes can break and fall apart which is where you run the risk of your product being damaged and unfit for consumption, which equals a loss of money. With the price of cardboard also on the rise, repeatedly having to purchase and dispose of cardboard is going to rack up quite a hefty bill.

Our PPS equipment, on the other hand, comes with no risk of disintegrating, and is built with durable food-grade plastic so it can be used hundreds of times over. Even the most robust of plastic transit packaging can get damaged after years of use. If this happens to be the case, our repairs team can fix the equipment to ensure that waste is kept to a minimum.

Hygiene is Key

By renting equipment from us, you no longer have to worry about wash maintenance costs or hygiene concerns as we can do all of this for you. Our state-of-the-art washing facility provides all trays with the deepest of cleans to remove any leftover foods or labels from previous transportation. They are then dried and shrink-wrapped to maintain maximum hygiene.

Improved safety within your business

We understand how the food supply chain works and how some months can be a lot busier than others. When you buy crates and pallets, you run the hazard of having a lot of crates piled up high in factories waiting to be used in the quieter months. However, with PPS crate rental we will store the crates for you in the quieter periods to free up space in your factories and when the busier periods come around, we will have the crates for you as and when you need them.

Not only will this save you money in the long run, but it will also avoid trip hazards and crowded factories, creating opportunities for hazards.
