“The ability of our world’s citizens to perform effective systems thinking is extremely important to the world’s future.”
Ross D. Arnold, 2015 Conference on Systems Engineering Research
Bouncee is more than just an Australian-made crate, a collection of coolants and accessories. When you choose bouncee, you join our community that revolves around a holistic, circular system. We all collaborate on every life cycle stage and ensure efficient sustainability throughout.
A circular economy example based on bouncee:
1. Design and manufacture
Bouncee designs and manufactures innovative crates and accessories in Australia or for international customers at a location close to you. No matter how small your application, we collaborate on evaluating pack-outs, temperature control, and other key factors to adjust the system to maximise its performance in your supply chain.
For higher volume users, you can work with our design team to customise the entire system and maximise its efficiency in your application. Branding, sizes, layouts, fit with automation and many other design adjustments are possible.
2. Delivery to you
Bouncee, with its fold-flat architecture, has been built for efficient delivery anywhere in the world.
2A to 2F: Your operations
All bouncee products are designed and built to provide as many cycles in your supply chain and operations as possible.
3. Returning for repair and then back to you.
Thanks to their patented modular construction, individual panels of bouncee crates can be replaced. This enables repairs of once-damaged crates, returning them to service and maximising the economic and environmental investment in the other components.
We take damaged crates back, analyse them for continuous improvement of designs, and repair them. Repaired crates are returned to you, and damaged components are sent to stage 4 for recycling.
4. Recycling at the end of life.
Bouncee crates and accessories are made from EPP, PP, and HDPE. All these plastics are recyclable at the end of their long lives in your supply chain. The HDPE bottles can be punctured and drained before sending to a curbside program or a commercial recycler. For the EPP crates and thermal dividers, we take them back to facilitate recycling into new products.
1. Do bouncee users always follow this system?
Absolutely not - every bouncee user does some variant or modification of the above to match their preference or requirement. This is just one example of the systems thinking behind bouncee that can be easily modified and adapted to meet the needs of many supply chains and applications.
2. When should I fold the crate? Every time?
