PPS East Limited, Europe's leading fish box rental company, has reported a steady increase in direct sales for their reusable packaging.

Over recent months the company has seen added interest from fish merchants, suppliers and processors who are looking to purchase from PPS East various reusable containers, including plastic boxes, pans, defrosting crates and pallets for internal factory use. For storage and transportation of product to customers, orders are being placed for fish fillet trays, salmon and whole fish boxes, bale-arm crates, baskets, tubs and bins.

Traditionally, PPS East has supplied boxes for the Humber fish auction markets and also rent reusable plastic packaging for fresh fish suppliers in the UK and Europe. To enhance the solution that PPS East offers to its customers, they are delighted at the increasing revenue now being generated by the direct sales division since its recent launch.

As a result, PPS East are now stocking at their Grimsby site a comprehensive range of fish box sizes (6kg, 10kg, 15kg, 25kg, 40kg & 50kg) for direct sales to customers. They can also source most types of plastic containers as required, along with plastic pallets, wheeled dollies, insulated bins, pallet boxes, dolavs, etc

Kate Williamson, Business Development at PPS East, commented: "As returnable packaging specialists with over 10 years' experience in supplying and hygienically washing all types of plastic containers, we provide our fish and seafood customers with expert assistance and advice on all aspects of the market.

"Having always supplied our boxes as part of a 'complete service' which includes the rental, washing and collection, it is great that we can now offer an added option of purchasing from us.

If a business needs to reduce its packaging costs, eliminate polystyrene box waste, transport fish with extra security and increased quality, we can advise on the option of rental or purchase of our products. We will also help with the selection that is best suited to the task and which is most cost effective."
