Should you buy online? Absolutely! But please do so without using disposable packaging!
As yet, there is no reusable packaging system for online retailing that is more cost-effective than disposable packaging. Time and again, customers are stuck with the return and the economic and practical expense. With more and more virtual stores being established, a lot of companies face multiple challenges. In addition to the enormous price increase of cardboard boxes, 52% of all retailers see themselves undersupplied because there is not enough cardboard packaging on the market. Cardboard boxes produce unnecessary shipping waste, which causes CO2 emissions to skyrocket. Our reusable containers are designed for hundreds of shipments. The containers can be 100% recycled at the end of their life cycle and the material can be used to manufacture new containers. For this purpose, BITO offers a recovery guarantee for all containers.

BITO Multi-purpose containers – Application examples
Take a look at the reBOX project
Through years of experience and cooperation with reBOX, we have built a secure and future-proof foundation to implement YOUR project.
The Berlin-based startup reBOX has made it their mission to combat the flood of packaging waste generated by online retail. This is to be achieved by introducing reusable shipping solutions. ReBOX offers interested companies both reusable shipping boxes and the appropriate monitoring software, thus helping retailers make the switch from cardboard boxes to reusable shipping boxes.
ReBOX is the first full-service provider in this field. The partnership with BITO-Lagertechnik who manufactures reusable shipping boxes is a great advantage for both sides.
- Attractive shipping conditions
Reusable packaging and reasonable shipping terms are the name of the game when it comes to reducing the cost of returns. Since reBOX's shipping partners believe in us and the future of reusable packaging, we were able to negotiate especially competitive shipping and return prices for all reBOX customers.
- No deposit – The system can be offered to end customers without the need for a deposit.
E-commerce purchases need to be quick and easy, and deposit charges don't fit the bill. The reBOX system fortunately also eliminates the need for end customers to pay a deposit on their reusable boxes.
- Smart, simple, unique – user-oriented tracking software
Anyone who wants to get their shipping boxes back, needs to know where they are. With the help of the reBOX software, every reBOX can be tracked at any time without using expensive GPS tracking or other trackers. Of course, the system also automatically reminds your customers to return the boxes.
Our customer Mobilonline.sk in Slovakia uses the BITO MB ECO series as shipping box instead of disposable cardboard boxes. The only way to make shipments truly sustainable is to use reusable packaging!
MobilOnline started using our multi-purpose MB containers as an ecologically responsible replacement for classic carton packaging. When placing an order, customers can choose how they want the goods to be packed. One option is to use a BITO multi-purpose container for which they pay a token fee as a deposit. Customers can choose whether they want to
- return the container against reimbursement of the token fee
- keep the container as their property to re-use it for further shipments.
BITO MB containers – safe transport of premium-quality, sensitive high-tech products
Previously, the company stored and transported high-tech equipment in (often too large) disposable cardboard boxes or without wrapping in wire-mesh pallet boxes. Both options were to be replaced by reusable containers to ensure safe and damage-free handling of sensitive products in various sizes. For economic and ecological reasons, the customer wanted to reduce or even avoid packaging waste with this alternative. Other requirements were compatibility with European standard pallets, stackability and availability in various sizes.
What our customers say
“This sustainable packaging solution not only convinces us, but also customers from the crafts sector who increasingly make use of this container system. We are meanwhile delivering many orders using MB containers. This saves huge amounts of cardboard and paper waste and facilitates handling - nothing has to be folded and glued. Because MB containers can be nested, they take up little space when empty.”
Jens Mangold,UNI ELEKTRO Department Manager for Safety and Organisation of the Eschborn central warehouse
BITO Multi-purpose containers are a perfect fit for many industries
The solution for perfectly temperature-controlled and safe delivery of fresh foods.
The requirements in this industry are particularly strict, because groceries are perishable goods. The demand for freshness and hygiene as well as proper chilling present extreme challenges. Despite these challenges, it is important that storage and transport offer the customer highest levels of flexibility. BITO provides the optimal material flow solution for keeping foods fresh on their way from the warehouse to the customer.
Flexible, fast and reliable logistics are particularly important in the healthcare sector.
Hygienic and safe storage as well as cold chain compliance are key. In order to meet the high demands, pharmaceutical and healthcare companies are increasingly relying on intelligent logistics solutions. BITO reusable multi-purpose containers ensure smooth shipping of medicines, vaccines and other pharmaceutical products.
Optimising materials handling and information flows ensures that deliveries are made on time.
In addition to managing freight forwarding, many logistics service providers are taking over all other logistical functions. This involves storing of a wide variety of products. From small and large parts to refrigerated and hazardous goods. Digitalization and automation have conquered this sector, too, and are essential to maintain and to increase supply chain performance. BITO is able to fulfill all requirements to be met by logistics service providers.
Durable and sustainable solution for shipping goods.
Online retailing is representative of a trend that is spreading across all industries. Accordingly, the demands on logistics have also grown. Safe transport of the products must be ensured in order to exclude transport damage. Reusable MB containers from BITO are a sturdy and sustainable alternative to simple cardboard boxes. They have been designed to meet the requirements of a wide range of industries.
Safe shipping of hazardous goods
Hazardous substances are always a sensitive issue. Improper use and shipping can entail dire consequences. Hazardous substances are potentially harmful for health, may be flammable or explosive and could damage the environment. Therefore, proper transport is essential. Our MB containers are ideal for transporting hazardous goods and help you avoid potential dangers.
Perfect solution for spare parts deliveries
Spare parts are in demand both in the B2B and B2C sectors of any industry. Dimensions range from small parts such as screws to larger parts
which can be safely transported in customisable BITO multi-purpose containers.
The solution for on-time and reliable delivery of letters and parcels.
The postal services industry is a very dynamic sector with high throughput levels. Globalisation and internationalisation contribute their share to the constantly growing challenges. BITO MB containers help you cope with an increasing business volume and varying parcel sizes.
