Produce Managers Compare RPCs to Corrugated

Oct. 25, 2010
According to IFCO Systems, providers of reusable plastic container (RPC) management services, the majority (97.9%) of produce department managers it studied reported better inbound produce quality with RPCs compared to corrugated cases. This finding came out of a year-long survey of 1,163 managers. These respondents also reported easier unloading and stocking with RPCs.

“By surveying front-line produce managers and employees for their feedback on the RPC programs, we were able to glean critical information on how the RPC program is affecting the retail produce sector,” said Fred Heptinstall, president and general manager of IFCO RPC Management Services.
