United Pal­let Ser­vices, Inc. has joined the Reusable Pack­ag­ing Asso­ci­a­tion to lever­age the association’s research and part­ner­ships in sup­port of mar­ket expan­sion. The com­pany will exhibit in the RPA’s Reusable Pack­ag­ing Pavil­ion at PACK EXPO Las Vegas 2013, bring­ing the record num­ber of exhibitors to 33.

“We are excited to join this group of dynamic com­pa­nies who are focused on the sus­tain­able trans­port of goods and ser­vices,” said Callen Cochran, busi­ness devel­op­ment man­ager, United Pal­let Ser­vices, Inc. & The point­GUARD Pal­let Pro­tec­tor. “Being a mem­ber will allow us to tap into the research and the part­ner­ships that this orga­ni­za­tion pro­vides to help us meet our goals. We also hope to under­stand how we can bet­ter con­vey to poten­tial cus­tomers the advan­ta­geous ben­e­fits of a reusable pallet.”
