RePak - Returnable Plywood Boxes
Nefab RePak is an ideal solution for returnable flows. Due to its lightweight plywood material and collapsibility ratio it ensures ease of handling and assembly.
Having a collapsible returnable packaging system allows for numerous savings during handling, transport and storage.
When comparing returnable plywood packaging solutions to alternative materials such as steel or plastic, one must consider environmental impact, capital investment needed, total cost of system including transport/storage/repairs, ergonomics and safety for workers, and much more.
Comparing the Nefab RePak to a one-way solution, a returnable packaging system can realize significant cost savings. Nefab's plywood containers are highly cost-effective if your material flow is reasonably large and you have few distribution points.

- Long lifespan, very strong
- Ideal for returnable packaging pools

Types of returnable containers:
Durable and flexible pallet collar system with four or six galvanized steel hinges. Available in standard and custom sizes with various options.
Returnable steel and sheet material. Packaging solution consisting of three parts: lid, frame and a fixed base attached to a pallet. It is highly recommended for heavy or bulky goods and its major advantage is its ability to collapse within itself.
Similar to RePak T, RePak L is a returnable steel and sheet material packaging solution with six hinges. However, RePak L has the option to be returned stacked without any pallet attached to it to reduce the collapsibility ratio even further. Under regular operating conditions, a single Nefab RePak L can replace more than fifty expendable packaging products.
