Our 360° approach

01. Supply chain and processes survey

Using returnable transit plastic packaging starts with a complete survey of the existing supply chain organization, efficiency and cost of each customer.

Our team of local Retail supply chain specialists, will survey your current packaging and logistics operations to offer clever cost saving solutions.

Our 360° approach

02. Standardized cost saving logistic solutions

All our Retail supply chain packaging solutions have standardised dimensions to be fully compatible with all handling and logistics equipment.

Exceptional stacking strength allow taller columns of containers to maximise use of space in warehouse storage, distribution vehicles and back of store. Folding or nesting when empty, our packaging solutions reduce return logistics costs and help reduce carbon footprint.

Schoeller Allibert RTP is used at every stage of the supply chain; from harvesting of fresh produce, fish boxing at sea, meat portioning at the abattoir, manufacturing of electrical goods, clothing, etc. all the way through the supply chain to retail point-of-sale display.

Our 360° approach

03. Bespoke packaging solutions tailored to your needs

Inside standard reusable transit packaging, the shape and nature of the product carried may require specific materials, tray shapes and ventilation. A special base may be required to withstand automated storage systems.

To customize our standard solutions to your special needs our teams will work in close cooperation with local or global partners. They will define, design and offer bespoke packaging solutions avoiding any contamination and damages. Enabling optimised cost and life time.

Equally, standard crates and containers can be manufactured in your corporate colours and printed with your brand and/or logo. This serves to promotes your corporate identity, reduce the risk of theft and loss and also to aid sortation in busy distribution centres.

Our 360° approach

04. Renting and pooling through our partners

According to specific customer circumstances (such as a short term supply contract, packaging sourcing strategy, a lack of resources or capital constraints) it can sometimes be more efficient for RTP users to rent standard and/or specific packaging, than it is to invest in a privately owned RTP fleet. For those cases, each local Schoeller Allibert Retail supply chain specialist can recommend our pooling and renting partners offering the best local services.

Our 360° approach

05. Repairs and maintenance

We offer a comprehensive repair and maintenance service, suitable for complex products subject to heavy use in industrial environments. Contracts are local and tailored to specific circumstances.

They can include replacement parts, on site repairs, or regular maintenance and upgrades. Refurbishment: Our refurbishment option, based on local agreement with Schoeller Allibert, offers an opportunity for customers to gain a cost-down on packaging for quality refurbishment to extend the life of your fleet.

Our 360° approach

06. Food approved recycling services

Recyclability is an important feature of returnable plastic packaging systems. It is even more crucial for food & grocery retailers as only food approved plastic materials can be used. Schoeller Allibert is one of the first RTP manufacturers to gain EFSA approval which covers the recycling and remolding processes at our facilities in Murcia, Spain, Monheim, Germany and Hardenberg, The Netherlands.

The accredited process which covers the recycling of food-grade HDPE and PP crates into new containers for food contact, has been developed in order to help food processing companies and retailers to meet increasingly stringent sustainability targets. No pollution, no waste. We take care of all the necessary steps, creating a 100% sustainable packaging cycle.

Using fewer scarce commodities is an important development for the packaging industry. By focusing on recycling, companies can considerably reduce their purchase of commodities and supplies. This is an important contribution to saving our environment. We feel a responsibility to support and endorse this positive development. We’re confident recyclability will set the standard.
