Söhner Kunststofftechnik expands its service offering: container rental as an alternative to immediate purchase.
Söhner Kunststofftechnik, the specialist for thermoforming technology and transport packaging, will be bundling its rental offering under the "Rent MegaPack" service brand in the future. In this way, the supplier from Schwaigern, Baden-Württemberg, is reacting to increasing demand and now offering conventional rental in addition to its existing rental-purchase services. The offering includes foldable large load carriers in dimensions from 1200 x 800 mm to 1800 x 1200 mm.
Meeting short-term peak demand with conventional rental
Seasonal peaks, high-output periods before public and plant-internal holidays, or constantly changing incoming orders often lead to enormous packaging bottlenecks in many companies. To make load carrier management more efficient in such cases, Söhner Kunststofftechnik provides its customers with the opportunity to rent the "MegaPack" large load carrier in quantities from 100 pieces and over a period of 3 to 36 months. At the end of the rental period, the folding systems return to the supplier. According to Söhner Kunststofftechnik, this saves not only costs for procurement, storage, and logistics, but also guarantees companies maximum flexibility at any time. In the rental variant, two MegaPack folding systems with dimensions from 1200 x 800 mm to 1600 x 1200 mm and the mesh box version F-GIBOX Standard with standard dimensions of 1240 x 835 mm are available.
To prevent high investments, rental-purchase is the right solution
For a fixed rental period of 24 months, Söhner Kunststofftechnik also offers the rental-purchase variant. In contrast with conventional rental, the customer itself decides at the end of the rental period whether it wants to return the rented large load carriers or purchase them at a previously determined fixed amount. Particularly during new or launching projects, high investments in packaging can thus be prevented, the supplier says. A fixed rental rate over the entire rental period also simplifies the calculation, as the rent can be deducted directly as an operating expense. In the case of rental-purchase, the foldable large load carriers are available in six dimensions up to 1800 x 1200 mm.
