The Returnable Packaging Industry is growing at a rapid clip with more and more businesses trying to achieve sustainability goals and report these in statutory documents. Along with meeting sustainability goals, companies aim to reduce or cut transportation costs and avoid in-transit damages to the goods. A third major benefit is reduction in packaging waste at OEMs factories, thereby reducing disposal cost-sand environmental impact.
IPSCOM Returnable is the preferred packaging supplier to Automotive Tier 1 manufacturers. The company is planning to expand its service footprint to FMCG industries and Ecommerce players. IPSCOM Returnable differentiates itself with its pan India network of operations, design capabilities, well trained operations and solutioning teams. It manages a wide range of automotive parts like fuel pumps, steering systems, braking systems, turbo chargers, castings, wheels, body panels and other auto components with standard off the shelf and customized solutions. IPSCOM’s solutions are designed keeping in mind loading and unloading TAKT time, line feeding efficiency, good ergonomics and optimal truck utilization.
Replacing traditional paper based expendable packaging makes sense from more points of view than sustain-ability alone. Domestic and international kraft paper prices are on a long term upward trend. Kraft paper prices are also volatile, thereby causing unplanned increases in costs.
‘Our aim is to impact the environment in a positive way with our returnable solutions while ensuring financial/efficiency gains for the manufacturers and clients,’ says Srihari Raghavan, CEO, IPSCOM Returnable.
The organisation is material agnostic and provides a wide range of packaging options. Different handling environments and part characteristics determine the ideal packaging mate-rial. Typical foldable containers are available in steel or plastic, with need based customized packaging. Wood containers - Foldable boxes, pallet collars and pallets are also a part of the product portfolio. IPSCOM Returnable uses Polypropylene Dunnage’s, which ensure products are secure in transit and delivered with utmost safety to the designated destinations.
Another important feature is the serialisation of the assets, where each individual asset has its own unique identity and is scanned across the entire flow starting from Tier 1 Manufacturer
to the OEM level. The scanning linked to a web-based tracking system helps in minimizing asset losses, track usage over time and ensures accurate billing.
