Metano IBC Rentals Help Reduce Liquid Packaging Costs

March 23, 2009 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
PERRINVILLE, NJ - Metano IBC Services Inc. is introducing its stainless steel IBCs as a fiscally responsible alternative for transporting a wide variety of liquids.

Renting stainless steel totes helps companies preserve capital, lower disposal costs and reduce product loss, according to Metano President Tom

"In this recession, companies want to cut their capital expenses in every way possible. Renting stainless steel IBCs definitely help achieve this
goal," he said.

Wilkins cited other financial advantages of renting an IBC, including decreased:

- Labor costs;
- Product disposal;
- Packaging costs.

Manufacturers also should consider renting IBCs rather than buying steel drums, because the stainless steel tanks eliminate their pallet costs, provide both long- and short-term budget flexibility and substantially reduce their total annual packaging cost per gallon.

"IBC rentals represent a 73% reduction in container costs," Wilkins reported. "You only need to lease one 550-gallon tote vs. buying 10
55-gallon drums."

Stainless steel intermediate bulk containers present another distinct advantage, given the continuing credit crunch, he said. Reputable IBC rental and services companies can offer their customers flexible payment plans and financing options, which can make a difference in a company's ability to operate.
