We've covered the benefits of returnable packaging in our Handling of Expendable Packaging vs. Returnable Packaging post. Citing that corrugated plastic is durable, reusable, and moisture-resistant. Furthermore, we stated the benefits of returnable packaging also include a reduction in overall shipping costs, safer delivery, and fewer workplace injuries.
