Delivery of assets to supplier

Tosca reusables are delivered to a supplier – when are where they’re needed – to begin their journey. When you pool with Tosca, you only pay for an asset’s single “trip” through the supply chain, including washing and servicing.

Assets shipped to distribution center

Reusable containers are shipped to a retail distribution center where they’re prepped and await transport to a store.

Product delivered to retail store

Reusables are stored neatly in the back room or cooler at a store. They can be unloaded or, in the case of retail-ready assets, they can be placed directly at point-of-sale in the store.

Sorting

After being unloaded or used, reusables make the journey from the retail store to a salvage sort center where they’re joined by more Tosca reusables from other stores and sorted by type and size.

Washing at a Tosca service center

Tosca picks up the used reusables from the sort center and delivers them to one of our 18 service centers for an efficient process. They’re inspected, repaired if necessary, and washed under the industry’s most rigorous food safety program.
