Is reverse distribution right for your company? In its most simple terms, reverse distribution is the recovery and reuse of packaging. You’ve heard it all before. Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.
But there’s got to be more to it, right? Exactly. It’s a full-service systematic process.
Avoidable distribution hazards are impacting the products you ship.
The best way to ship? Design a unit load for your product. A unit load combines multiple items into a single “unit” that can easily move through the distribution process.
