Customized solutions focus
Over the past three years Cabka developed and tested the reusable large foldable container solution in close cooperation with Target, applying Cabka’s Intellectual Property and Target’s logistical expertise.

Cabka and Target enter into a multi-year agreement, representing a significant value in future revenues for Cabka. The initial order represents approximately EUR 13 million in 2022 revenues for Cabka. Cabka expects further orders on a quarterly basis.
The partnership between Target and Cabka demonstrates Cabka’s growth strategy in the US, especially leveraging the opportunities in the large container and customized solutions segment.
Enabling the circular economy
The large foldable containers are made from 100% recyclable high-quality plastics and are designed for extreme reusability. The usage of the units creates significant efficiencies in transport and logistics enabling the circular economy by:
- eliminating the usage of the single-use packaging items from entering the landfill, reducing solid waste;
- eliminating the need to recycle or remanufacture single use packaging, reducing carbon (greenhouse gas) emissions;
- superior product protection offered by the units resulting in lower product damage and waste;
- enhancing the efficiencies of return logistics by allowing at least 4 times as many empty containers in a truck;
- closing the loop by taking back end-of-life containers for recycling.
With this supply agreement, Cabka is providing support for some of Target’s long-term recycling needs and using various waste as feedstock for future production.
