Creative Coverings develops reusable shipping system
Creative Coverings, a national specialty linen rental company headquartered in Sparks, has developed reusable nylon shipping bags to replace corrugated boxes for return shipments from its customers.
The company worked with UPS to develop a bag that meets the freight company’s standards without additional handling charges. Each bag is expected to replace 300 to 600 corrogated boxes, said President Robin Brockelsby.
“If you’re going to produce roughly 80,000 ounces (of gold) a year at $800 an ounce … and gold is at $1,900 or $2,000 per ounce, that’s going to create a tremendous amount of cash flow.”
