There are many factors to weigh in order to select the most effective reusable container. This presentation outlines tools that are available to help businesses make informed decisions regarding the type, size and density (parts per container) of the most effective returnable container for their operations. It also helps businesses weigh operational constraints such as ergonomics, space in the manufacturing operations, available storage space, inventory policies, and operator efficiency. These constraints need to be balanced against inbound transportation costs to provide the lowest total delivered cost of material to a plant or warehouse. Presenters: Michael McGrath, President of 3P Supply Chain Engineering, and Michael Kennedy, Vice President of Operations at 3P Supply Chain Engineering.
