Maxitainer Cost Savings Case Study
A cost saving alternative to single trip corrugate
Bullen Healthcare had been sending out pallets everyday to several satellite distribution hubs. Each pallet shipped £25 to £30 of single trip corrugated cardboard boxes. The company was spending around £125,000 each year on cardboard boxes.
Bullen switched to Maxitainer and purchased 100 units at approximately £100 each. The Maxitainers have lasted 3 years and are still in service. Some are reported to have completed more than 200 trips - equivalent to 50 pence per trip.
By their own data, Bullen report a saving of £360,000 over the 3 year period and that their Maxitainers are still going strong (testimonial available).
That is a 36 fold ROI. If you think you could similarly benefit, get in touch today.
Richie Bell (Bullen Healthcare Ltd. Warehouse Manager) explains
We are very glad we made the switch to Maxim’s reusable Maxitainer and we are projecting much greater savings than we anticipated. We were confident we would see savings from eliminating the ever present cost of single trip corrugate and the cost of disposing of it - in regard of that, Maxitainer paid for itself within a month. However, we also saw savings in the change from parcel rates to pallet rates and in the reduction in pallet trips per week from our main DC to our satellite outlets (from 5 down to 3), due to the more efficient packing available from Maxitainer as compared to a similar height of corrugate boxes. From an investment of just over £12K we should see savings in excess of £120K which is a remarkable ROI. Richie Bell
