Paper Systems only ships non-hazardous materials. Unfortunately, we find some of our new customers previously used hazmat containers for non-hazardous materials. Oftentimes, this occurs because that company ships some hazmat classification of materials and chooses to ship all their products in hazmat containers. However, hazmat containers are more expensive than non hazardous containers. Using Paper Systems’ products to ship non-hazardous materials is a simple cost saving solution and will help reduce your budge from spending more money on the costly hazmat classification of more expensive containers.
