RTI's for fresh produce
RTI’s and packaging for fruit, vegetables and food is of great importance within the fresh produce sector. It doesn’t only protect the produced goods during transportation, but throughout the entire process from producer to consumer. Even though these transport items are very important, companies aren’t always aware of this. Did you know that an average company often pays too much for its packaging costs? There are varying reasons for this, but the bottom line is often that there aren’t enough insights into these packaging flows.
Within the fresh produce sector, the costs for stackable fruit and vegetable crates, reusable boxes, folding crates, dollies and other load carriers often make up a large share of the total operating costs. This is because a deposit is paid per item and these items must then be returned. However, problems arise because they are constantly being transferred and handed off. Additionally, there is no clear record of who has which type of packaging and where these items are. Companies then end up losing this packaging and have to pay for the costs.
