Solution: Universal set up an inventory system that tracks all returnable containers and monitors the monthly use of containers for each supplier. Using a manual tracking system, Universal monitors all containers coming in and out of the warehouse for each supplier. At the end of the month, Universal creates a chart that determines how many containers each customer needs in order to achieve their process flow.
Results: For the last 5 quarters, the customer hasn’t had to pay for any alternative packaging which has resulted in a significant cost savings.
