Vendor Spotlight: Crushr

In the logistics industry, our vendors are everything. The difference in a happy or unhappy customer. A profitable engagement or a money loser. In the spirit of celebrating our local vendors, we celebrate them and the value they bring to our industry.

This month we’re excited to honor the Crushr team!  The husband-wife team of Shannon & Brandon Reynolds are helping Porter Logistics with our green initiatives and also bringing awesome cost savings to our business. Most people don’t think of trash a large expense, but it really adds up when business is heavy.

When Alex (Crushr technician / sales savant) first visited our facility we were extremely skeptical.  He promised us less down time, a better-looking facility, and that he’d save us money. 

So obviously we told him to get lost and that we didn’t want any of the snake oil he was selling!  He’s persistent though and finally we agreed to talk, “OK, what’s this all about?” It’s a deceptively simple idea, the dumpster company comes to pick up trash when the dumpster is full and you get charged. Every time there’s a pickup, a charge follows. But what if you could triple or even quadruple your existing dumpster capacity, and thus reduce your pickups? The answer is Crushr.

We reluctantly agreed to a free demo and were surprisingly impressed with the results!

1.       Our dumpster that we thought was full was all of a sudden ¼ full

2.       We immediately saved 50% on our hauling costs

3.       The Crushr machine looks really cool so we took some pictures in front of the warehouse (see image)

In terms of cost savings, Crushr has reduced our refuse removal costs by 75% and as a bonus we’ve been able to promote them as one of our green initiatives to prospective clients. At a cost effective rate, the ROI has been stellar. They’re way more than just an Atlanta dumpster service.

They’ve also been great partners to work with and we’d recommend them to almost any business unless you just hate saving money in which case you definitely should keep paying all that money to your hauling company.
