Your tracking system is a cost reduction and time saving tool. The direct financial benefits include reduced purchases and a smaller pool of shipping assets due to higher rates of recovery and increased asset velocity.
Other benefits include a reduction in administration time, faster and easier count reconciliation, enhanced customer satisfaction and more cost efficient environmental decisions about returnable packaging and re-useable platforms and containers.
Your tracking system will provide you with all of the necessary information that you require in order to make informed decisions. Ultimately, time previously spent managing returnable packaging will be made available to be used in other aspects of your operations.
