“Lost” RTIs in the North American auto industry alone amount to around
Not to mention losses due to:
- Operational down time
- Inefficient loop, cycle, and turn management
- Expedited shipping
- Other important supply chain inefficiencies
How much would you save by addressing these issues?
OEM mandates are gaining traction throughout the Automotive industry to use RFID to track returnable transport packaging items (RTIs) throughout their supply chain.
While complying with these mandates may help OEM relations, who’s to say suppliers can’t benefit as well?
76 percent of companies agree that they encounter problems with returnables.
With eP360, facilities gain access to their own returnable packaging data, as well as the movement of other assets throughout their supply chains—saving millions, increasing efficiencies, reducing down time, and providing a record of accountability—with no process changes.
