RPC Sorting

It sounds complicated because it is.

Ever since reusable plastic containers came onto the scene, we've embraced them. We've been as happy as anyone to see retailers and other industries experience the benefits of RPCs. They reduce product damage and help your supply chain work efficiently. But, sometimes they can be too much of a good thing; it's easy to be overwhelmed by the volume of empty RPCs needing to be sorted.

RPCs need to be sorted and returned quickly and efficiently; this is often easier said than done. RPCs must be sorted based on type (produce, egg, protein), pooler (IFCO, Tosca and Polymer Logistics), and then occasionally by size. With a growing number of commodities and higher volumes in use each year, the entire process has become more robust and time-consuming. That's where we come in.

We process all empty RPCs as quickly as they are received. We do not prioritize processing by pooler, establishing a level playing field. Over the years we've developed a variety of ways to make your supply chain more efficient and, as part of an overall management strategy, RPC sorting can become a valuable tool to save time and money.

At Relogistics, RPC processing is a core competency. We are experts in receiving and handling RPCs after use and getting them back to the appropriate pooler, grower or owner. We also offer extensive knowledge and experience in making your supply chain more efficient. We take the challenges of your distribution network and turn them into assets.

As always, everything is tracked using our proprietary software, Velocity. That way, you can see progress along every step of the supply chain. Our top priority is to get those RPCs out of your distribution center and back to moving product.
