The Future is Here with Returnable Plastic Containers

The days of packaging perishables in wooden containers for transport and storage have given way to the future of Returnable Plastic Containers (RPCs).

Standard in the industry for decades, wooden containers don’t hold up to the days of changing weather, snow, rain, humidity and hot summer sun. They may last for a couple of years, but RPCs can last for more than 10.

Returnable Plastic Containers from Green Processing Company are a smarter packaging alternative to wooden or cardboard containers for shipping perishable food.  Reducing waste and boosting cost savings make RPCs the packaging solution that does both.

They have many benefits. They’re tear-resistant, easily foldable, drillable and stitchable. They fit where non-returnables have previously been used and have a higher level of strength against impacts and breakages. They’re superior protection for your fruits and vegetables significantly reducing supply chain costs.

Rugged, Returnable and Reusable

These rugged, returnable, reusable long-life plastic containers are collapsible and stackable to 20 feet and hold up to 1500 lbs. They have side doors for easy loading to avoid bruising versus dropping the fruits and vegetables from above into a wooden crate.

RPCs are injection moulded with High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) making them extremely durable and long lasting. On top of that they have a superior impact resistant surface with parts impervious to any weather.

The superior strength of HDPE provides better product protection, delivering the highest quality perishables to your customers. RPCs can handle the rough and tumble path of your supply chain.

Returnable Plastic Containers from Green Processing Company are designed to be sturdy and are more common in the produce industry for carrying fresh fruits and vegetables. They’re designed for preserving the quality of the harvest. Their use reduces damage and losses and they’re an inventive container that allows produce to tolerate the drive on difficult roads.

Returnable Plastic Containers, Efficient Alternative to Wood and Cardboard

Expendable cardboard and wood packaging are less expensive and RPCs cost more in the beginning. Of course, if the packaging is used once or twice then you can get by with wood or cardboard. But a smart agricultural business plans for the future and takes advantage of the many cost savings utilizing the technology of RPCs.

Wood packaging has little value and there can be dumping costs. Cardboard can be recycled but the cost of processing it outweighs the value. This kind of expendable packaging has a very short life span.

Economic, environmental and an efficient alternative to wooden products, Returnable Plastic Containers can be reused many times and recycled at the end of their life. Reusable packaging are products designed to last in any agricultural system ensuring their effective recovery and return for continuous purpose.

Green Processing Company utilizes current recycling programs and techniques. Its intention is to disturb the environment as little as possible, with the goal of diverting more waste from the landfills. Whenever possible, we prefer handling returnable packaging as it’s the more environmentally sustainable and reusable choice.
