A Practical, Sustainable Solution—The EZ Rack

After years providing packaging to nurseries, our founder saw that nurseries and retailers needed returnable packaging that fit perfectly in trucks. We worked with nurseries and retailers to design our patented EZ Shipper Rack. We partnered with them to recover our racks from retailers to lower costs and reduce environmental waste.

Over the years we have built a dedicated national network to support our partners. Having done over 10,000,000 recoveries for our customers, we continue to be the nation’s leading supplier of recoverable shipping and display racks to the lawn and garden industry.

Our One-Way Shipping Solution

NURSERIES
  • Disassembled racks are delivered to your nursery.
  • Nurseries assemble racks and ship products to retailers, generally within 21 days.
  • Nurseries inform EZR of Rental Rack shipment via our online Rack Tracking System
RETAILERS
  • Empty racks are moved by retailers to a central location for EZR recovery.
  • The EZR call center calls retailer to confirm number of empty racks and dispatches Rental Rack recovery agents.
  • The recovery agent disassembles the racks and returns rack back to the repackager location
RECOVERY AGENT
  • Leveraging our national network of 40+ strategically positioned recovery facilities, we sort rack components and repair broken ones and re-palletize racks for delivery within 48 hours.
  • We coordinate delivery back to rental customers based on current inventory levels and forecasted needs.

Benefits of Renting our Racks

Reusable packaging keeps packaging out of landfills. Wooden racks are antiquated.
Regional nurseries leverage our national network to deliver to retailers or growers.
Renting racks allows less upfront fixed costs, predictable cost for nurseries and eliminates recurring capital investment.
Nurseries can focus on cultivation and allow EZR to handle reverse logistics of retrieving racks from retailers.
Shipping plants on the rack minimizes handling of products, reduces damage and improves sell-through.
