Returnable Container Center

Midwest Express Inc. operates three returnable container centers in Ohio. These centers support the effective management of returnable containers and expendable packaging which means having the correct quantity of the proper containers and dunnage at the right place at the right time.

Cost saving programs within these centers are a direct result of reducing disposal costs and eliminating the purchase of one-time use packaging materials, pallets, and containers. In addition to good environmental practices, the use and management of returnable containers has become a mission critical issue for modern manufacturers due to the greater adoption of Kanban and JIT based supply chains.
