With the IFCO pooling system, our customers share RPCs in a continuous loop, using them as and when they need them. This helps our customers reduce costs and lower their environmental impact, while saving time and storage space.
As a company increases its use of IFCO Reusable Plastic Containers (RPCs), it sees more efficient handling and use of space as well as a reduction in product damage and food waste. For example, a supermarket chain using RPCs for just 20% of its five million annual fresh food shipments will save €96.700 – €210.896$110,000 – 240,000 a year.
Using IFCO Reusable Plastic Containers (RPCs) ensures the safe transport of perishable foods and lengthens their shelf life. This is good news for food quality, as a higher percentage of fresh produce reaches the Point of Sale (POS) intact and they remain fresh longer.
Our products use fewer natural resources than disposable alternatives throughout their lifecycle, from the energy and materials used in their manufacture through cleaning and repair to eventual recycling. And because they perform better in transit – stacking securely and maintaining their structural rigidity – they offer indirect environmental benefits, too.
IFCO RPCs go straight from producer to Point of Sale (POS), reducing labor, storage space and packaging waste along the way. Quick and easy to replace in fresh produce departments, saving you time and money.
