Recyclable Packaging Solution FrameTray™
FrameTrayTM is an environmentally friendly and cost-effective packaging provided by Boxon. It is a type of optimized injection-molded packaging that can be designed specifically for each product, and, most importantly, is recyclable and can be reused for making new FrameTrayTM. It is widely used in the automotive industry for parts such as crankshafts, pistons, camshafts, flywheels, and EV batteries that requires testing with dangerous packaging.
Boxon has provided FrameTrayTM for over 10 years to various automotive brands in their global supply chains. We have set up the recycling centers for FrameTrayTM in Europe and Asia and have the operational experience essential for safe and timely transportation of customers’ goods.
Advantages of FrameTray™
There are many advantages of FrameTrayTM.
Firstly, injection-molded plastics technology enables standard boxes traditionally combined with various types of inserts to be replaced with lean packaging. Boxon’s FrameTrays have been shown to achieve up to 50% greater packing capacity when used in various application areas. It also simplifies the handling when packing goods. Thus, it saves the cost of transportation and labor.
Secondly, FrameTrayTM develops a closed loop of material recovery, ensuring 100% plastic reuse throughout the entire supply chain. Therefore, it can significantly reduce CO2 emissions and contribute to sustainability goals.
Thirdly, FrameTrayTM can save the supply chain cost for customers due to our operational centers in Europe and Asia.
Last but not least, FrameTrayTM is produced in a clean environment so they do not contaminate customers’ products.
All in all, FrameTrayTM is a cost-effective and environmentally friendly solution.
