Why plastic reusables?
Reusable plastic shipping solutions offer more benefits throughout the supply chain than corrugated, wood or foam.
Providing more protection achieves less shrink – 50% less for some customers using our RPCs. One-motion, retail-ready designs save as much as 53% on labor costs.
The superior strength and structural integrity of our RPCs protects perishables much better than corrugated. And plastic pallets, not prone to breakage like wood, ensure stability and reliability during transport.
Retail-ready containers and pallets streamline merchandising and speed restocking. Ergonomic design, including built-in handles, makes our RPCs easier to carry. And splinter-free plastic pallets prevent injuries and lost productivity.
Our RPCs are designed for the specific needs of each industry. Built-in ventilation optimizes temperature in transit, allowing perishables to arrive as fresh as possible.
Exact sizing maximizes storage within each RPC. Standardized footprints and greater strength allow these stackable containers to reach new heights, maximizing cube utilization and reducing trips. And lighter pallets, like Cleanpal, enable up to 6% greater loads, for fewer trips and lower transportation costs.
Tosca RPCs and pallets don’t go to landfills. Instead, they go to our service centers after every trip through the supply chain to be cleaned, sanitized and reused. This keeps millions of tons of packaging materials from ending up as waste in landfills.
Corrugated can’t match the benefits of RPCs
- Purpose-built for perishables
- Superior strength, unmatched product protection
- Easier to handle, reducing labor and injuries
- Sustainable, reusable and recyclable, reducing waste
Are reusables right for you?
Select the areas your supply chain needs help with and see the potential cost savings you could have.
Eliminate materials waste
Do too many products arrive damaged and unsellable due to crushed packaging, or because unstable boxes fell off of broken pallets?
Do you purchase large quantities of single-use packaging? And are you frequently replenishing your pallet stock?
Are you risking workers’ compensation claims because of heavy boxes without handles that require a knife to open them? Are employees straining to handle heavy wooden pallets or taking time out to remove splinters?
Lower transportation costs
Is your outbound cube utilization less than optimal due to varying box size and strength, or lack of easy, secure integration on dollies and pallets?
Meet sustainability goals
Are you struggling to meet your organization’s defined sustainability goals because too much corrugated and wood ends up in landfills?
Do your workers spend too much time breaking down and disposing of corrugated boxes? Or repairing and replacing wooden pallets? Does the lack of retail-ready crate, pallet and dolly integration slow down merchandising and replenishment?
