Features and Benefits

RTIs can help a company improve its supply chain operations in a number of ways. The lower total cost of ownership of a durable package that can be easily returned and reused is such an obvious benefit that many users find that alone is enough reason to invest in a fleet of RTIs. For others, using RTIs rather than off-the-shelf cartons is a way to significantly increase productivity; they can choose or even custom design units that are easier to pack, handle and transport, while providing optimal protection for the goods they ship.
