What You Will Learn

Reusable transport packaging such as pallets, totes, and containers, have significantly advanced American supply chains. Every day, these reusable assets and other forms of reusable packaging are used to deliver products of all shapes, sizes, and quantities. More and more businesses are utilizing reusable transport packaging every day. We will explore and discuss the types of reusable packaging and benefits to the supply chains including environmental, reduced product damage, better unit load, lower labor costs and more. Finding the right reusable pallet, container or tote to fit your product is only part of the answer. The sheer volume of reusable packaging in use can also overwhelm labor resources, take up space and significantly slow down operations. Handling, processing and returning pallets and containers once they are emptied can create all kinds of challenges to supply chains. We will take a closer look at options for retailers and manufacturers to improve the processing, tracking and returning of reusable transport packaging in the most efficient way possible.
