Returnable Transport Packaging (RTP) Market: Introduction

Companies try to make the best possible impact on their customers and want to show how much they are trying to protect the environment around us. Generally companies use recycling or go green technology to lessen their environmental footprint. But there are other time tested methods out there, one such option is returnable transport packaging. Automotive and mechanical companies are the first to implement returnable transport packaging. In returnable transport packaging (RTP), same packaging materials and products are repeatedly used.

Returnable transport packaging is a system of reusable sacks, containers (hand-held or bulk), pallets, drums, racks and dunnage which are used to transport products safely and efficiently throughout the supply chain system. These packaging products are produced using durable materials such as wood, metal, plastic, glass and paperboards. Here the sole purpose is to use them repetitively in multiple uses.  By using returnable transport packaging, companies enjoy low cost-per-trip charges, while getting increased return on investments. Returnable transport packaging provides efficient and cost optimum transportation, handling, distribution of products.

Returnable Transport Packaging (RTP): Market Dynamics

Globally Returnable Transport Packaging (RTP) market is witnessing a healthy growth due to increased demand for environmental friendly and cost efficient packaging. Various returnable transport packaging models can be used which are viable and efficient in all supply chain systems. Some popular returnable transport packaging systems are:

  • Systems which are owned, maintained and managed by end- users
  • Owned by end users, but maintained & managed by third party companies
  • Packaging products are rented by end-users from a third-party pooling operator

The global returnable transport packaging has very good growth potential in coming years due to increased regulatory environment, land filling issues and high packaging cost-per-trip. Packaging costs for ecommerce companies and assemblers (automotive and mechanical companies, electronics and semiconductor companies, logistics companies and various home care and cleaning service providers) constitute large part of their manufacturing and service costs. In some cases the products they transport costs less but need high safety packaging E.g. products made up of glass & ceramics, chemicals, etc. In these cases returnable packaging saves lot of packaging cost and the benefits can be transferred to their customers. In some cases of supply chain systems, packaging costs are borne by manufacturing companies instead of logistic service providers. In this case logistic service providers do not care about packaging costs, they will only care about optimizing transportation costs and safety movements of products. So integration, information sharing, profit sharing plays vital role in reusable or returnable transport packaging market. Increased demand for grocery retailing is driving the global returnable transport packaging market. Containers constitute more than 55% of the global reusable or returnable transport packaging market. The main factors driving the containers growing demand is their easy recyclability and reuse.
