ContainerExchanger.com is an online marketplace that helps manufacturing and distribution businesses buy or sell used reusable packaging. Offerings include bulk containers, metal storage bins, plastic industrial totes, plastic pallets, used gaylord boxes, plastic collapsible bulk boxes, metal containers and wire baskets.
Launched in 2005 and based in Atlanta, ContainerExchanger.com helps companies reduce packaging acquisition costs and maximize return during disposal of used packaging.
As David Madden, president, puts it, “Sellers use the site to create profit from reusable packaging. Buyers use the site to save money on reusable packaging.” Madden calls the Web site an “eBay” for reusable containers. It helps sellers of used bulk packaging find buyers and vice versa.
In May, he launched a sister site — RackExchanger.com — to serve as an online marketplace for industrial racks and shelving. The new site connects buyers and sellers of used pallet racking and cantilever, stack, push-back, drive-in, flow, bulk and pallet flow rack.
