Returnable Transit Packaging (RTP) & Wash Services for Food Logistics
With an increasing trend for environmentally friendly products, Returnable Transit Packaging (RTP) is replacing single trip packaging products (such as cardboard) as the preferred carrier for transporting food products. RTP offers an easy to manage solution with controlled, predictable costs, and minimal impact to the environment.
Manufactured from durable plastic, PHS Teacrate's Returnable Transit Packaging products (crates, trays and pallets) are specifically designed for multiple trips over an extended life. They offer a rapid return on investment and a lower cost-per-trip than single trip packaging products.
The use of plastic Returnable Transit Packaging removes wood, cardboard and other fibrous materials for food production areas promoting good hygiene. Better product protection, particularly with chilled and frozen goods is a further advantage of plastic RTP over single trip alternatives.
Our RTP product range includes standard food crates, bakers trays, collapsible crates, bale arm crates, plastic pallets and pallet boxes. If you don't see what you're looking for, please contact us with your requirements.
