Track reusable containers without user intervention

Companies that ship their products or receive raw materials in returnable, reusable containers, find managing their return to be an expensive, time-consuming affair.  Dealing with misplacements, shipping errors, rate of return, and replacement of these containers can strain customer and vendor relationships as well.

Container inventory shrinkage of 15% annually is quite the norm in many industries.  But it doesn’t have to be that way. By tracking reusable containers with RFID, from your dock to your client and back, you can shrink cycle time, eliminate losses and improve accuracy.  All with less effort and less strain on your client relationships.  Getting those containers returned promptly impacts your bottom line. With more of your inventory in service, you won’t need to replenish as often.  Your container management is more streamlined and more scalable.  Your business is more competitive, and prepared for growth.
