Businesses continuously seek ways to make their distribution methods faster, more effective and more secure while squeezing out cost and inefficiencies. Returnable containers and other reusable logistics assets are used extensively throughout the supply chain – from suppliers, to manufacturers, across warehouses to retailers and point of sale – to effectively deliver goods and parts to desired destinations without the waste that occurs with one-way containers.

WHITE PAPER: A Return on Returnables

Using RACO Industries RTI Tracking, powered by TrackX, has the capability to provide enormous benefits to an organization, including:

REDUCED INVENTORY TIME AND LABOR

Allows for quick and easy inventories/cycle counts and searches for misplaced assets.

IMPROVED CYCLE TIMES

Better tracking provides insights into the time RTIs spend at suppliers, distributors and retailers and allows owners to reduce container downtime and underutilization.

REDUCED SHRINKAGE

Seeing trends within the supply chain and assigning accountability to assets help to reduce stolen, misplaced or mishandled containers.

MINIMIZED NEW CONTAINER PURCHASES

By optimizing the asset fleet, gaining accurate inventories, improving cycle time and reducing shrinkage, new container purchases can be reduced significantly.

GREATER ACCOUNTABILITY

Using auto-ID technology to automate the supply chain improves monitoring as containers leave the manufacturing facility or warehouse to suppliers and distribution partners allowing for the identification of pain points.

IMPROVED AUDIT ACCURACY

Gaining accurate inventory information provides better fiscal control and regulation compliance on capital assets.

IMPROVED CUSTOMER SERVICE

Whether it’s managing a product recall, predicting demand or eliminating problem kegs from the fleet, customer satisfaction will benefit.

INCREASED EFFICIENCIES

In manufacturing, distribution and transportation.
