How we helped this Dairy reduce their packaging costs

A well-known Dairy was using cardboard layer pads to separate layers of milk bottles on a pallet. The sheets were needed to give strength and stability to the pallet and prevent any damages. The bottles were stacked and secured onto the pallet ready to be distributed to supermarkets up and down the country.


The Challenge

The Dairy was struggling with supply issues. They wanted to order the layer pads on a just in time basis to cut down on storage costs. They were also interested in seeing if they could cut costs by switching to once used layer pads.

They contact Reuseabox to see if we could help.


We analysed the Dairy’s product and transport method and recommended a durable, once used cardboard layer pad, or divider. These cardboard sheets are great quality but significantly cheaper in cost.

Take a look at the cardboard sheets we recommended

The Result

After placing a trial order, the Dairy agreed to switch to once used layer pads for dividing their products. This created a substantial cost saving and was also more environmentally sustainable. The Dairy were able to order small or large quantities depending on their requirement and delivery could be arranged within 24 hours. This helped enormously with their storage capacity.


Benefits of Switching to Once Used Cardboard Dividers

–       A cost saving of around 30% was achieved.

–       Packaging on demand – next day delivery.

–       No minimum order value – order as much or as little as you need.

–       Environmentally sustainable packaging.


Environmental Benefits

Choosing to reuse isn’t just great for your wallet, it’s also great for the environment! By keeping cardboard in use for longer and delaying the point at which cardboard is baled and recycled, you are contributing to a more circular economy. Benefits of reusing cardboard packaging include,

–       Trees saved

–       Reduced carbon footprint

–       Less energy used

–       Less water used
