Spotlight: Reverse Logistics


Did you know that we've managed closed-chain reverse logistics programs for tens of thousands of shipments of biological specimens for publicly traded and private companies? We can do the same thing for you, biological or chemical. There are many reasons to consider a closed-loop program:
  • Reduce your packaging total cost of ownership
  • Lower cost-per-trip than single-use packaging
  • Leverage our network of warehouses across the U.S. for just-in-time delivery
  • Reduced waste management costs
  • Meet your sustainability objectives
  • Return focus from logistics to your core business
Our rigorous ISO 9001:2008 quality management standards ensure that the packaging meets the right performance level. Give me a call or send me an email today, and let's talk about how we can help. Download our informational flyer for more information.
