Make reusable packaging management your new strategy

If you’re just getting started with reusable packaging, our solutions can help you make a smooth and strategic transition. Benefit from increased automation, cost savings and more sophisticated and protective packaging for all types of goods.

Smooth and swift integration, cloud-based implementation

No matter your existing services, IT landscape or ERP, our solutions are built to integrate seamlessly, with no interruption to business continuity. Reusable Packaging Management, like all modules of Alpega TMS, is cloud-based, which means you avoid a costly IT implementation cycle.

Endlessly scalable

Reusable Packaging Management is available as a standalone module and as a part of Alpega’s end-to-end TMS. The solution is powerful alone; as a part of our TMS, it takes transportation planning and processes to new levels of optimization. Either way, you get endless scalability to ensure you’ll never outgrow the solution’s value.

Seamlessly updated

Industry knowledge, collaboration and technology let us deliver continually evolving solutions. Cloud-based updates are seamless and based on real feedback from clients. We’re always looking for the next way to improve.


What is the value of Alpega’s Reusable Packaging Management for your business?

Alpega RPM provides a single software platform to track and manage costly packaging assets. With a control tower view of reusable packaging, you can improve stock forecasting, reduce costs, and easily coordinate with production partners responsible for late or incomplete packaging returns. Reusable Packaging Management is also a sustainable solution, designed to drive circular economies.

Does Alpega’s packaging scheduling function operate on the “push/pull” principle?

Yes. With automated delivery rules, Alpega’s RPM “pushes” when scheduling demand and delegating orders. The solution applies the "pull" principle when users set up rules for packaging orders.

What are some of the key capabilities of Alpega’s Reusable Packaging Management solution?

Alpega’s RPM offers a single platform to manage packaging stock, packaging scheduling, serialized packaging, packaging fee settlement and packaging demand planning. The Reusable Packaging Management solution also streamlines processes such as document management, master data management and bundles management.

Is Reusable Packaging Management environmentally sustainable?

Yes. Alpega’s RPM is both environmentally friendly and cost-efficient. The solution can reduce GHGs, as it replaces the need for so much packaging material, energy and labor. Furthermore, since repeated use design implies more durable packaging, the Reusable Packaging Management solution reduces the risks of damaged and lost goods.
