Reducing carbon footprint with transport packaging materials

Reducing carbon footprint has become one of the main goals of many businesses. In a world where billions of pallets circulate every day, making the best use of truck and ship containers, reducing the weight of your packaging, and minimizing packaging use are some of the ways transport packaging can help you to reduce your carbon footprint, and contribute to the environment.

➡ Minimize your packaging and overall shipment weight

Your goods don’t need a heavy and large amount of packaging material to be safe during warehousing and transportation.

Instead of adding unnecessary serious weight to your load, consider using lighter materials that offer the same or even exceed the levels of protection. A dedicated packaging supplier will carefully check the size of the container, weight, and dimensions of your goods, destination, to help you optimize space, and find the most suitable solution for your needs using minimal packaging

The result will be an optimal, strong, yet lightweight transport packaging to secure your goods during transportation. Let’s take a few weights comparison:

➡ Choose packaging material from responsible sources

When choosing packaging materials that comply with sustainable forest management, you will be helping reduce your carbon footprint.

A responsible packaging supplier has serious concerns about forest management. The raw material used in the manufacturing of transport packaging materials and solutions are renewable and has certification such as FSC (Forest Stewardship Council), which is dedicated to promoting responsible management of the world’s forests.

Besides using raw material from responsible sources, at Eltete any process waste from our production is recycled.

The 100% recyclable packaging and pallet solutions will perform with excellence during transport and will be helping reduce carbon footprint.
