We bring the boxes back to one of our regional distribution centers where they are inspected and sorted by size and shape. Once placed in inventory, the boxes are resold to other companies as a low-cost, eco-friendly shipping solution. We venture-funded, growing fast and work with some of the world’s largest companies.
