At comepack, we focus on reusing reusable load carriers and avoiding unnecessary new purchases. However, there are situations where new carriers may be needed, such as business growth, short-term needs, or new projects. In such cases, renting load carriers through comepack offers a cost-effective and flexible alternative to purchasing new ones.

Reusable load carriers like pallets, large load carriers, and plastic containers are indispensable in the logistics industry. Companies often face the question of whether to rent or buy these carriers. The answer depends on various factors and requires careful consideration. Important considerations include the company’s financial situation, the specific need for load carriers, the expected duration of use, existing storage capacities, and the company’s risk tolerance.

Flexibility and Liquidity: The Advantages of Renting Reusable Load Carriers in Logistics

A crucial factor for companies opting for a rental solution is liquidity and their financial situation. Purchasing reusable load carriers requires a significant upfront investment, whereas renting results in predictable ongoing costs. Renting preserves more liquidity within the company, which is particularly advantageous in economically uncertain times. Furthermore, renting allows for flexible adjustment of the required number of load carriers to meet dynamic needs, which is especially beneficial during seasonal fluctuations or short-term projects.

It is also essential to determine the exact need and usage duration of the reusable load carriers. For companies that regularly and long-term need the same load carriers, purchasing might be the more sensible option. In contrast, renting is ideal for companies with varying or seasonal requirements, as they can respond flexibly to changes.

Optimal Storage Utilization with Limited Storage Space

The availability of storage capacity also plays a significant role in the decision between renting and buying reusable load carriers. Purchasing these carriers assumes that sufficient storage space is available. Companies must ensure they have the necessary storage capacity to permanently accommodate the purchased carriers.

With limited storage space, renting becomes a more advantageous option. Load carriers can be rented flexibly only for the anticipated need-period and returned after use. This reduces the need for permanent storage space and allows companies to use their spatial resources more efficiently. Additionally, renting avoids the necessity to lease additional space or expand existing capacities, which can involve considerable costs.

Overall, renting reusable load carriers provides a flexible and cost-effective solution, especially for companies with limited storage space or varying requirements.

Guide for Companies to Optimize Logistics Processes

Why Renting Reusable Load Carriers from comepack is the Right Choice

The company’s risk tolerance is another crucial aspect. Purchasing reusable load carriers carries the risk that they may no longer be needed if business processes change. Renting containers offers more flexibility and minimizes this risk. By having the option to return carriers as needed, companies can respond to market changes or internal adjustments without being stuck with surplus inventory.

Besides these advantages, comepack offers a variety of financing models to meet the individual needs of its customers. A particularly popular billing model for circular economy systems is the sale-leaseback model. In this model, comepack sells the reusable container to the first participant in the supply chain, who uses it and then resells it to the customer at the same price. After use, the container is sold back to comepack at a lower price. This enables fair cost distribution along the supply chain and reduces the risk of loss.

Innovative Rental Models and Efficient Logistics: comepack as Your Partner for Reusable Load Carriers

Additionally, comepack offers Pay-per-Day and Pay-per-Loop models, supported by container management software (BMS) for shipment tracking. The Pay-per-Day method allows for daily billing of rental costs, enabling precise adjustment to production requirements. Companies can thus flexibly control costs and efficiently use resources.

The Pay-per-Loop method, on the other hand, calculates the rental price after completing a usage loop, ensuring fair and transparent cost distribution. This model is particularly suitable for companies that want a clear overview of their logistics costs while needing flexible use of the reusable load carriers.
