Reusable Plastic Container Management

Reusable Plastic Container Management

More volume. More headaches. We can help.

Reusable plastic containers have significantly advanced the American retail supply chain. From reduced product damage to better unit load and lower labor costs, more and more businesses are utilizing RPCs. But, this means the sheer volume of containers in use can overwhelm resources and prevent distribution centers from being cleared in a timely manner. Handling, processing and returning RPCs after they are emptied, along with seasonal changes, can create all kinds of challenges to your supply chain.

Empty RPCs can be a challenge to handle. While the standardized footprint of RPCs makes them reasonably easy to stack on a pallet for outbound shipment, they are often dirty and wet. Our team of industry veterans has been handling RPCs since their introduction in the US over 15 years ago. We handled almost 110 million reusable containers last year alone. Our experience in the industry not only helps us to overcome challenges but eliminate them from happening. 

Handling RPCs is a core competency of Relogistics – not a secondary activity.  We are experts in managing variable labor to ensure maximum productivity. We also offer a resource of knowledge throughout the supply chain and the ability to take on challenging areas within your distribution network.

When paired with pallet management, our RPC management service reduces overall costs and allows you to focus on your business. We helped a large retailer test and roll-out their first use of egg and meat RPCs, allowing them to save a significant amount of money. Our service and expertise on the end of the supply chain help these conversions happen quickly and efficiently.

RPCs have advanced retail supply chains and reduced product damage and other costs, but must be handled efficiently for the system to work well. By tracking everything with our proprietary software, Velocity, we make the process collaborative and transparent. You'll know where your containers are at any time. Our goal is returning assets as quickly and efficiently as possible.
