Loadhog Turnover Grows by 26 Per Cent with Reusable Products Meeting Customers Needs

29th June 2018

Loadhog, the packaging innovator, establishes close partnerships with companies to encourage them to swap one-trip packaging for reusable products.

This has resulted in productive associations with companies such as Decathlon, enabling Loadhog to achieve a record £9.6m turnover, representing 26.6% growth in 2017. Like Loadhog, Decathlon has recognised growing investment in reusable transit packaging (RTP) and the detrimental environment effect of plastic waste, the sports retailer talked to Loadhog as a manufacturer of ground-breaker RTP products. Decathlon was already using RTP systems but wanted to extend its efforts to decrease packaging waste whilst increasing the performance of their packaging solutions. With Loadhog's support Decathlon swapped its old broken collapsible containers for Loadhog's version of innovative, sturdy design and manufactured using recycled material, with no adverse effects on performance. The resulting product is able to withstand the harsh environments of their distribution centres and speed up their picking processes. With the market's increasing interest in greener supply chain solutions, Loadhog, a member of the British Plastics Federation, is dedicated to supporting the worldwide campaign to reduce plastic waste. The company is currently using 50% recycled plastic in production with recycled plastic scrap generated in the factory or by external partners. Loadhog general manager, Shaun Khan said: -There has been increased awareness of plastic pollution and much interest from high investing key companies, particularly from the postal, retail and automotive sectors. These factors are no doubt responsible for our growth. -We actively encourage companies to recycle their own containers with our swap-out scheme and to invest in recycled material through innovation and the redesign of returnable packaging with no adverse effects on performance, ergonomics and aesthetics. Returnable packaging is certainly a growing and hugely valuable market which we will continue to support. For further information visit Loadhog.com.
