Print Print this article | Send to Colleague

OfficeMax, Naperville, Ill., USA , this week said that it is launching a Reusable Shipping Bin Program designed to help its contract business customers reduce corrugated waste by using OfficeMax's durable, reusable bins for supply shipments. The reusable, lightweight bins feature an advanced bar code system for tracking and are labeled with the OfficeMax logo for identification.

"Many of our contract business customers are seeking to adopt 'greener' business practices, and we're proud to meet their needs with this highly efficient, sustainable shipping program that enables these companies to significantly reduce waste," said Reuben Slone, EVP of Supply Chain for OfficeMax. "At OfficeMax, we're constantly seeking ways to implement programs that help our customers operate more cost-efficiently and conserve natural resources."

The Reusable Shipping Bin Program is available to contract business customers located in metropolitan areas that place orders multiple times per week. OfficeMax's private fleet of trucks will handle the delivery and pickup of all reusable bins. Shipping times and delivery locations will remain the same for program participants unless otherwise requested.
