Partnership packaging solutions

Los Angeles, CA, US: Rehrig Pacific Co and Intelleflex have partnered on a new solution that will offer shippers in the pharmaceutical and food industry as well as retailers and other shippers concerned about cold-chain asset management more tools to ensure product integrity.

Intelleflex, which provides on-demand data visibility, and Rehrig will offer reusable transport packaging solutions that will deliver on-demand visibility to track and monitor temperature and condition of cargo. The solution will allow products to be monitored and managed throughout the cold chain without requiring the unloading of pallets or opening of containers, while also addressing government and industry regulations for traceability, safety and quality.

The solution uses Zest Data Services to alert personnel to real-time changes in temperature and other environmental factors that can impact the integrity of the shipment and potentially expose customers, and an organization, to significant risks relating to quality and safety.

“Temperature-sensitive pharmaceuticals and food manufacturers require intelligent cold chain management systems for safety and profitability,” said Kaley Parkinson, national sales manager of Rehrig Pacific Company Supply Chain Technology Solutions. “Partnering with Intelleflex on intelligent transport packaging solutions and ZEST Data Services will provide measurable value and logistical benefits to cold chain operations. We are pleased to work with Intelleflex to assist with our ongoing pursuit of continuous improvement for our customers.”

Intelleflex’s XC3 Technology monitors the cargo and reports directly into Rehrig’s packaging systems. XC3 Technology-based readers and tags provide the ability to reliably read and write data to tags, automating processes and eliminating many of the limitations of bar codes.

The solution also enables customers to more easily and cost-effectively track containers, bins, crates, pallets, and reusable plastic containers (RPC) as they move through the supply chain to better manage inventory, reduce purchasing and labor costs, improve efficiency, and maximize asset utilization, Intelleflex said.

“We’re excited to work with Rehrig Pacific to incorporate Intelleflex XC3 Technology temperature-monitoring tags directly into their intelligent reusable transport packaging solutions to provide customers with actionable data for improving the freshness and quality of perishable goods,” said Peter Mehring, president & CEO of Intelleflex. “By managing the temperature and condition of products at the pallet, tote or container level, we can enable an intelligent supply chain that includes uniform builds and loading, prioritized routing, streamlined operations, and improved traceability.”

Rehrig is a manufacturer of reusable transport packaging systems including plastic pallets, distribution and display crates, and carts and containers for grocery retail, pharma, material handling, food and beverage, agriculture, and recycling and waste industries.
