Reusable Packaging Sortation and Optimization

Pallets, RPCs, bins, and totes – we’ll help you stay on top of all your reusable packaging flows.

Stay on top of reusable asset inventories and returns.

Because sustainability programs have to be sustainable. Reusing and recycling are important parts of any supply chain’s sustainability strategy, but these efforts require additional oversight, labor, and logistics. PLA can help maximize the efficiency of minimizing your footprint by managing your reusables and recyclables for you.
Because lost pallet fees aren’t good for anyone. Keeping track of another company’s assets is tough, especially when there’s more than one. PLA can get all those pooled pallets back to their owners quickly and with full visibility, so there’s never a question where those assets are.
Because returnables don’t return themselves. All those reusable pallets and containers coming back through your DCs may be good for the company, but you’re the one who’s got to figure out where to put them and who’s going to sort them. PLA’s on- or off-site programs will help you put that time and space back to work on more important jobs.
Because you can’t manage what you don’t measure. Tracking and reporting your reusables and recyclables is critical to managing your program effectively. PLA will provide full visibility into all your pallet and packaging flows, plus recyclable volumes and waste, giving you the insight you need to make the most of your efforts.

Stay on top of it all without doing it all yourself
