‘Saving money from day one’

Leasing Returnable Transit Packaging (RTP) can save businesses money from day one, according to LINPAC Allibert. The company argues that the savings made by introducing reusable containers can more than cover the cost of the lease.

LINPAC Allibert has introduced a finance package that enables businesses to buy its trays, containers and allied products without the need for upfront payment. The company offers a range of long and short term lease purchase and rental agreements, where customers can choose whether or not to put the finance on their balance sheet. At the end of the lease period they have the option of returning or purchasing the equipment.

Simon Knights, commercial director from LINPAC Allibert, comments: “Many businesses see the environmental and financial benefits of moving to returnable transit packaging but are put off by the initial capital outlay. Leasing is an ideal solution because there is no upfront payment. The savings made through improved supply chain efficiencies, faster handling time and reduced disposable packaging costs usually cover the price of the lease.

“There are a number of other financial benefits to leasing RTP. As well as being tax deductible, the regular payments help with budget planning and free up capital to spend on other areas of the company. It also allows businesses to take advantage of the latest technology by upgrading during or at the end of the lease period. Critically, it means that customers can have what RTP they need, when they need it – rather than having to wait for the capital to afford it.”

Businesses looking to upgrade existing RTP containers can also benefit from leasing through LINPAC Allibert’s Buy-Back scheme. Simon Knights explains: “The Buy-Back scheme allows companies to trade in their existing returnable containers. They can then have an injection of cash from selling their old fleet, while taking new equipment on a lease agreement with regular payments. Companies often have to upgrade their RTP gradually because of the cost. Buy-Back enables them to move to an all new consistent RTP fleet in one transaction, increasing efficiency and allowing for re-branding and corporate colour changes.”

LINPAC Allibert also offers rental and pay per use services to help businesses meet peaks in demand. The company is one of the largest hirers of bulk containers for the agricultural and food processing industries, holding extensive stocks to meet heavy seasonal demands at attractive rates. It also offers a variety of the food industry leading Maxinest trays, giving a competitive alternative to purchasing and storage for short term hire. Rental terms are available for one week onwards and discounted rates are offered for high volume or longer term hire.
