Returnable packaging systems have continuously been gaining importance in national and international logistics for quite a time now. Increasing price war, rising competitive pressure, growing globalisation and increasingly severe legislation have made them a more and more essential part of the internal and external logistics of a company. Nearly every company today participates in one or more returnable packaging systems.
