LINPAC Allibert launches buy-back scheme

LINPAC Allibert has launched a buy-back scheme for returnable transit packaging that will operate in a similar way to a part exchange system.

Customers receive cash for a written down asset, giving it a value on their profit and loss account. The old stock is recycled.

Customers can use the cash to upgrade their stock by buying new containers from LINPAC Allibert, or if the new containers are acquired on a lease, there is no upfront payment meaning a fresh new fleet of top quality RTP is immediately cash-positive.

Simon Knights, commercial director at LINPAC Allibert, said the scheme would turn a burden into an asset that could make a tangible difference to the balance sheet, clear valuable storage space and return resources into the system so that they can be re-used.”
