Success: Global Clothing & Product Retailer

Context & Challenge

A large discount retailer approached IMPACT in 2022 with a problem: the substantially rising cost of manufactured boxes and the extremely volatile manufactured box market was significantly raising the cost of their packaging material and making it difficult to forecast the company’s monthly spend on boxes.


Following an in-person visit, IMPACT analyzed supplier reporting and dedicated warehouse space and promised a monthly inventory for this client based on their volume.


In 2022, IMPACT supplied this retailer with over $6.4 Million worth of once-used cardboard boxes for their shipments between Distribution Center and storefront. This saved the company $655,000 compared to purchasing manufactured boxes, all while diverting 4,955 tons away from landfills by capturing these boxes as once-used rather than treating them as trash.
