Ever since I was the managing editor of Unit Load Management Magazine over 15 years ago (If anyone remembers, please raise your hand) I’ve had a desire to re-emerge with a new magazine about reusable packaging. As it turns out, an e-magazine is a more cost effective approach, and so here it is, as a work in progress. The first edition of Closed Loop is now finally available.

Closed Loop, aimed at celebrating best practices for users of reusable packaging and pallets, is designed to be a mobile friendly source of information and inspiration in this critical component of supply chain operations.  The large, 15 point font is aimed at making for a better mobile experience. The theme of the first issue is beverage, including an introductory treatment. While elementary in tone, the idea is to make the publication more useful to an explorational web search audience in the months ahead, rather than just for returning, more experienced readers in the world of reusables.

Hope you have a few seconds to take a look, and welcome your feedback with respect to what works and what does not.  Click here for the July-August editio of Closed Loop.
