ORBIS RPM opens beverage service center in Mexico

Service center is next step in expansion of ORBIS RPM (Reusable Packaging Management).

By ·

ORBIS Corporation, an international service provider of sustainable reusable packaging and an expert in supply chain optimization, has opened an ORBIS Reusable Packaging Management (RPM) Beverage Service Center located in Queretaro, Mexico, which will provide support to the Rexam Mexico facility.

ORBIS works with Rexam, one of the world’s largest beverage can manufacturing companies, to provide management of its plastic pallets which are used to transport cans from Rexam’s can manufacturing plants to customer filling plants. Through its Reusable Packaging Management service, ORBIS manages this process, including demand planning, shipping, tracking, cleaning, sorting and replenishment—improving the flow of the product through the supply chain.

“Though this Service Center was established late in 2012, it has now been set up as a fully equipped cleaning and sorting facility,” said Sergio Cabrera, ORBIS RPM Beverage Service Center manager. “The Center will be instrumental to continuing ORBIS’ work with Rexam from a management perspective, providing visibility to all of their assets so that Rexam can get the most out of their reusable packaging system.”

Rexam recently recognized ORBIS RPM with its prestigious honor of Best Support for providing support to Rexam, by assuring pallet availability during high demand times, which resulted in consistent plant performance and delivery quality.

The opening of the RPM Beverage Service Center is an integral step in ORBIS’ expansion of their Reusable Packaging Management services. Since the recent appointment of Albert Seecharan as president of the company’s RPM services, ORBIS has been focusing on service line management to ensure their customers extract full value from the efficiency of a reusable packaging program.

“This RPM [Service] Center will not only assist with sorting, washing, repair recycling and replenishment of Rexam’s packaging, but will also assist with demand planning and asset tracking,” said Seecharan. “We consider this new center in Queretaro to be the next step in creating a long term relationship with Rexam- moving from not just providing reusable packaging but going one step further to also leverage our experience and expertise to optimize their entire shipping system.”

ORBIS RPM offers customers easily adoptable and highly visible models to ensure customers benefit from efficient tracking, improved reusable packaging turnaround time, reduced product losses and transportation costs, and to enable customers to operate with less packaging while reducing the need future purchases – tightening consumption and increasing profits.
