PPS offers complete package for Returnable Transit Packaging

21 May 2015

PPS are attending Meat Up 2015 to showcase its comprehensive services and ‘complete package’ for Returnable Transit Packaging (RTP) and will demonstrate to visitor’s ways of reducing costs and waste from their supply chain.

The ‘complete package’ is very flexible to meet individual customer needs and includes the rental of plastic trays, crates & pallets, pallet boxes and bulk bins, plus management, repair and wash of equipment pools. 

Moving around 20 million crates a year PPS has built extensive knowledge of returnable packaging which is used throughout many industries, primarily in food processing which includes meat, poultry, fish, fresh produce and bakery sectors. The efficient management of equipment is supported by PPS’s own in-house developed IT tracking system (EnableTM) that monitors the movement of products and therefore, minimises equipment losses by accountability. 

With modern sites located in Grimsby and the Midlands, PPS have two state of the art wash facilities accredited to BRC in storage and distribution where they hygienically wash all their own returnable packaging. This service is also offered to customers with their own equipment pool on an ad hoc or contract basis.   

Managing Director Joanne Moss commented, “MeatUp is the ideal platform to showcase the environmental benefits of returnable packaging as it is replacing cardboard and polystyrene boxes along with other single trip packaging as the preferred method for food transportation in supply chains. At PPS we are experienced in working in the meat industry with major processors, distributors, wholesalers and retailers, and considering customer typically save 25% when switching from cardboard to plastic crates we are keen to help customers make the transition to RTP. This not only contributes to environmental benefits but considerable cost savings too!”
