3 Returnable Containers That Will Save You Money


Here at Carter Associates, we believe that reusable containers are one of the best ways to save you money. Where single-use packaging diminishes your returns over time, reusable containers increase them. And not only that—reusable packaging is much better for the environment.

With this simple truth in mind, our team has created an array of reusable containers that are designed to last you in the long run. In this month’s blog post, we’ll be discussing three different returnable containers we offer and how they can benefit you.

Thermoformed Pallets

When it comes to returnable containers, few are as useful as thermoformed pallets. We manufacture our thermoformed pallets so they’re both reusable and recyclable.

Additionally, we offer custom vacuum-formed pallets that we’ll form to your materials, dunnage, and even OEM components. Whatever you’ll be shipping, our professionals will design long-lasting dunnage that’s easy to transport and minimizes floor space use.

Corrugated Plastic Shipping Totes

Our Tuf-Totes got their name due to the cutting-edge bonding techniques we use to create them. By bonding the totes, we create a tougher structural support than our competitors’ totes, hence the name Tuf-Tote.

In addition to the strong design of our Tuf-Totes, they’re also completely customizable, recyclable, printable, and even modular.

Other benefits of Tuf-Totes include:

  • No sonic welds or stitching
  • 100% recyclable material
  • Lightweight, yet reliable, construction
  • Stackable design for easy storage

Returnable Dunnage: Foam, Corrugated, and Thermoformed

Upon request, we’ll create custom dunnage in CAD that fits the contours of your unique product. Additionally, our thermoformed dunnage is perfect for any item that ships through harsh environments. We can fabricate:

  • Urethanes
  • Ethylenes
  • Styrenes

With these materials, we’ll use a variety of cutting methods to produce high-quality, safe dunnage at a low cost. Our goal is to create dunnage that will always keep your product safe, even when faced with difficult shipping environments.
