Automotive, Food & Beverage and Pharma industries are constantly innovating in their packaging solutions. Some years ago, they shifted from one-use packaging to a returnable and reusable packaging, allowing them to reduce costs and waste.
The use of these kind of RTP (Returnable Transport Packaging), such as, Reusable Plastic Containers (RCP), Foldable Plastic Containers or Plastic Pallets among others has been increasing during the last periods and other industrial sectors have adopted similar solutions for their supply chain. In this contexts, and in combination with the Internet Of Things, new markets and solutions arise that were not possible in the past. We are talking about tracking the location of each packaging (containers and pallets) in real-time, so companies (OEMs in the Automotive case) can have a total visibility of their supply chain in real time.
