The RPA serves as the collective voice of the industry and uses its knowledge of the members’ products and services to advance the adoption of reusable packaging and systems throughout the supply chain. The RPA is focused on promoting the expansion of reusables as the preferred packaging solution across supply chains in all industries.
ALSCO, based in China, is the association’s fourth international member. ALSCO is a leading packaging manufacturer and provider of solutions and logistics services in the Asia-Pacific region. The company has been providing quality products and returnable packaging solutions for the automotive, retail and transport industries worldwide since 1998.
