Reusable Transport PackagingTransport packaging consists of the container used to hold a number of primary packages for a good, the platforms used to transport the containers from the end of the packaging line to the store shelf and the film used to hold the containers onto the platform during transit. Most goods today are still shipped using one-way cartons that are either landfilled or inefficiently recycled at the end of the trip and wooden pallets that must be repaired or replaced after only a few trips.
Reusable transport packaging (RTP) is the multi-trip option that keeps packaging waste to a minimum, is highly recyclable at the end of its life and has a lower impact on the environment than one-way packaging. For users, well designed RTP is the starting place for a more efficient and sustainable supply chain. The rewards of switching to RTP include:
- Reduced packaging costs
- Better ergonomics and lower labor costs
- Lower rates of product damage during transport
- More efficient material handling and storage
- Lower inventory and shipping costs
- Increased worker safety and lower workers’ comp claims
- Improved sustainability scorecard
- Increased sales with greater merchandising options
