In March WRAP, backed by government funding from Defra, invited RPS managing director Gary Hudson to their Resource Efficient Distribution (RED) Working Group in Birmingham. The day outlined how businesses could develop and / or refine the way they transport their goods in order to reduce waste, prevent damage and in turn the associated costs and where packaging reuse can be utilised. Packaging is an integral part of many businesses and pallet supply is one the most common forms of transit packaging. The day emphasised the importance of pallet recovery and reuse and how packaging costs can be significantly reduced by reusing existing packaging assets.
