Why reuse is essential to supply chain success

Published on 2020-04-06

Recycling is the responsible consumption formula most used by companies to reduce the number of wastes within the supply chain.

It is one of the most important challenges faced by companies around the world, which apply processes designed to encourage the reuse of materials and work with more sustainable solutions.

An example of this are the plastic pallets, made of recycled materials, an outlet for this waste and in this way contribute to protecting the planet from environmental impact.

Benefits of reusing plastic pallets

Reusing a product as many times as possible has enormous benefits for the environment: it contributes in a sustainable way to the well-being of our planet and brings numerous benefits to the company.

• Save money and generate less waste. Reusing existing resources means manufacturing fewer pallets. This saves production costs for companies and helps minimize resources used during manufacturing processes.

• More streamlined supply chain. Including reusable plastic pallets in a company's logistics circuit allows for a more streamlined supply chain. Reuse is key to optimizing resources.

• The landfill is avoided as a destination. To reduce the environmental impact, it is essential to know how to properly manage waste from production activity. This means that, once the useful life of the pallets is exhausted, they must be recycled to convert the waste into new products or reusable raw material. And all this, without going through the landfill. In this way we prevent the release of polluting particles.

• Improves social recognition. Acquire a real commitment and focus all efforts on promoting a more sustainable and friendly production and logistics circuit with the environment is a reward from society. It generates trust in the consumer, who ends up becoming a loyal customer.

Naeco, previously Nortpalet and its environmental commitment: "Zero Waste"

At Naeco, previously Nortpalet, we have always maintained a firm commitment to guaranteeing the protection of the environment. For this reason, we have developed sustainable production processes capable of generating the least amount of waste possible.

We base our work on three key aspects: reduce, reuse, and recycle. This philosophy, focused on promoting the circular economy and aimed at reusing existing resources, minimizes the release of polluting particles in our environment and helps us to achieve the desired goal of “Zero Waste”.

This environmental effort has been recognized by AENOR, which has awarded us a certificate that shows that our productive environment contributes to the sustainable care of our planet.

Naeco, previously Nortpalet and the circular economy: Buy-Back program

At Naeco, previously Nortpalet, we adequately manage the waste from our production activity, and we encourage our customers to recycle plastic pallets through the Buy-Back program. This buy-back system consists of the buy-back of all those reusable plastic transport elements that have reached the end of their useful life to be processed and recycled.

In this way, we obtain the raw material necessary to give rise to new products and we give infinite lives to plastic, which becomes a 100% sustainable and environmentally friendly material.

Using recycled plastic pallets as a logistics solution favours environmental protection and care and brings numerous benefits to all those companies that include them in their strategic plans. The same happens when we carry out sustainable production processes based on reuse.

Provide your grain minimizing the environmental impact. At Naeco, previously Nortpalet, we have a wide range of recycled plastic pallets suitable for reuse circuits to satisfy all the logistical needs of our clients.
