Pallets and Returnable Transit Packaging (RTP) Software

Pallets, crates, containers or rather any empty returnable transit packaging (RTP) are one of the last priorities for many manufacturers. Quite rightly so, as their product is their focus and not returnable packaging. Often situations arise where empty pallets or crates are running short for production. You then have managers organising last minute procurement of new ones from the pallet manufacturer or logistics service provider. This may prove to be expensive as you are only addressing the symptoms of a problem and not the cause. We are in the business of returnable packaging for over 20 years and can help offer you solutions.

Repeated purchases of new equipment is not the answer to the problems.  Result:an ever increasing investment in pallets or crates.  PackPlan will assist you plan and organise your pallets or returnable plastic containers (RPC) or KLT (small Automotive crates/Kleinladungs Träger). Make the best out of less. Increase the turnover of your RTPs by knowing where they are and who possess them. Invest less and save.
