Global tracking of returnable and reusable packaging

Losing track of reusable packaging and containers means losing time and money.
Containers, pallets and racks travel between production, OEMs, customers and suppliers. Even though they are labeled as returnable, packaging easily gets lost and large amounts of money go to waste.

  • Real-time tracking and identification of containers, racks and returnable packaging, on-site and off-site, with the customer, supplier or anywhere on the road
  • Elimination of lost packaging search actions
  • Reduction of returnable packages quantities
  • Elimination of excess packaging material production & cost
  • Management of circular logistics for sustainable re-usable multi-trip packaging

Use cases of asset tracking

Below, we list some of the use-cases for tracking returnable packaging assets.

Returnable packaging items are often lost or stolen during transit or storage, resulting in financial losses and disruptions to the supply chain.

With the indoor/outdoor trackers you will have continuous visibility of your assets, even when GPS reception is not possible, the system will fall back to Wi-Fi or even cell-tower localization. At any time, the historical locations can be viewed in the system.

In the event of theft, the device can switch to recovery mode with real-time tracking to retrieve the asset.

Organizations struggle to ensure that returnable packaging is used optimally, leading to excess inventory or shortages of these assets.

Through real-time tracking, it becomes possible to track the amount of packaging containers on hand or off-site. The Pozyx platform can measure your asset utilization over time and can provide various alerts that help to increase it. For example, alerts when inventory levels will become too low or too high.

Accurately determining the required containers in various logistics flows is challenging, relying on anticipated lead times and logistics managers' demands. Our research indicates that manufacturing companies can reduce their container fleet size up to 20% by optimizing allocations through effective usage analysis.

Compliance with returnable packaging agreements and contracts can be challenging, and organizations may struggle to hold partners and suppliers accountable for lost or damaged items.

Typically, containers will be treated with more care when people know they are being tracked. Furthermore, through tracking, it is much easier to find out who is responsible for the damage.
