"Optimizing Returnable Container Processes for Sustainability"
Does your packaging encourage sustainability or are you living with unnecessary waste? Camille will share the importance of accurate data capture to obtain an optimal level of performance for any packaging system. How well does your company track returnable and expendable packaging expenditures and usage? Returnable packaging is designed for reuse in manufacturing and distribution systems to reduce purchase needs. Expendable packaging can be reused and recycled and is usually designed for single trips. Effective management of container inventories is dependent on the quality of data collection, resources, and priorities. Robust processes have the capability to facilitate record management, account for volume fluctuations, reduce misdirected shipments and prevent stockpiling. Though tracking systems may not be uniform between facilities, processes can still be effective.
