Rehrig Pacific Company Launches New Logistics Technology Platform After Highly Successful Testing Reduces Asset Repurchase Rate by 25 Percent

Rehrig Pacific Company, a national leader in logistics optimization for the world’s best brands, has announced the launch of its newest technology platform, RVision, to its supply chain customers. The RVision platform was designed to provide actionable business intelligence that will help customers to maximize their return on investment of their reusable transport packaging assets through improved productivity gains, better asset utilization and consumer engagement.

“The reduction wouldn’t have been possible without the data and feedback provided by RVision’s RFID tracking platform,” said Kaley Parkinson, Director of Applied Technology and Business Development for Rehrig Pacific Company.

 

Rehrig Pacific products powered by RVision can provide real-time visibility and traceability, increase velocity to market, mitigate risk through faster response time, identify supply chain bottlenecks, reduce asset loss, improve asset utilization, and reduce waste.

As a part of RVision testing and validation, Rehrig Pacific tagged nearly 300,000 assets for PepsiCo with tracking RFID technology. More than 1MM trips were recorded through the company’s distribution territory in the Southeastern U.S., across seven production facilities. Increased visibility, awareness, and data resulted in reduction of asset repurchase rates by 25 percent, year over year. Better than expected velocity revealed that Pepsi’s reusable assets are a better financial alternative to one- way, less sustainable packaging alternatives.

“The reduction wouldn’t have been possible without the data and feedback provided by RVision’s RFID tracking platform,” said Kaley Parkinson, Director of Applied Technology and Business Development for Rehrig Pacific Company.
