Use of steel returnable packaging in the automotive industry

Have you ever heard of returnable packaging in the automotive industry?


They help transport car parts, including tires! These racks give us the security that everything will be transported in a safe way and will not damage the product, once the packaging is used, the cycle starts again. That is why they are returnable, thanks to the fact that they are made of steel, which is a very strong and safe material, you can use them as many times as necessary.


A car is the end result of a long chain of production and planning and contains thousands of different types of components, of various shapes, sizes and weights. The vast majority of a vehicle's components are manufactured by Tier 1 and Tier 2 suppliers to the OEMs. Returnable packaging plays a crucial role here, as it is used to constantly and uninterruptedly supply this loop between suppliers and assemblers.


In order for an automaker to produce vehicles efficiently and deliver them to the market on time, the plants must receive individual components from their suppliers.
