IFCO SYSTEMS' core competence is the efficient management of a worldwide rental pool of over 165 million RPCs (Reusable Plastic Container) used to transport fruit and vegetables. Offering a total of 24 different sizes globally, our RPCs in Europe and the United States address the packaging and transportation requirements of various types of fruit and vegetables in the goods and produce cycle.
In our core markets, Europe, the United States and South America, some 390 million tons of fruit and vegetables are produced annually. These products must make their way quickly and without damage from producers to consumers - and often across country borders. In many instances, the period between harvest and consumption is no more than a few days.
Consequently, retailers and producers are calling for flexible, effective, cost efficient and state-of-the-art product distribution solutions. This puts stringent demands on transport containers and their utilization from producers through retailers to consumers.
IFCO SYSTEMS' RPCs and service systems are well equipped to meet these demands.
