What is returnable packaging tracking?

Most industries deliver their goods in disposable packaging like, for example, cardboard boxes or low-cost containers. But in some industrial contexts, you need a more durable, rugged, and returnable type of packaging. This can be racks, custom containers, cylinders, bins, and other kinds of returnable assets. By equipping your returnable packaging with Sensolus’ low-power GPS trackers, you ensure it is brought back, inspected, and used again. Furthermore, our low-power GPS trackers function autonomously and only gather data when valuable for your use case. You can analyze the collected information in the web application to optimize operational processes.

Why should you track your returnable packaging?

Returnable packaging is no rental equipment. Often, this means customers don’t care about the containers. They only care about the goods inside it. Once the packaging is emptied, customers push it to the side and want to get it out of their way. Or the customer can even start using it for other purposes. For you as a supplier, this poses a real problem since you invest capital in a fleet of returnable packaging. If this is sitting idle at customer sites even more capital is needed to buy new assets. By tracking your returnable packaging with low-power GPS trackers you are always aware of their location and usage. You can keep track of your inventory and receive alerts when assets are not moving for too long.

Highlights returnable packaging tracking

Battery life up to 5 years

Years of functioning without battery replacement

You often use low-power GPS trackers in an industrial environment. An environment where returnable packaging travels around a lot or isn’t that easy to access. In this case, you want a tracker that can function for years without having to replace the battery. Replacing batteries for tons of devices would create a massive operational burden that would make a good ROI impossible. Our trackers guarantee a battery life up to five years.

Full control of your inventory

Know at all times how much returnable packaging you have in stock

In our user friendly web application, you can keep track of your returnable packaging inventory. In a glimpse, you see how much packaging you have in stock and which ones are in use, either being transported or at customer sites. Furthermore, this helps you find returnable packaging that has been at customer sites for too long.

Identify idle returnable packaging

Detect, identify, and allocate unused assets

When you equip your returnable packaging with low-power GPS trackers, you have insights in the use-rate of your fleet. This helps you find back packaging that has been at customer sites for too long. Furthermore, you can avoid investing in new assets that are not needed.

No infrastructure required

Ideal for usage in extreme field conditions

Our low-power GPS trackers are easy to install. The advantage is that you don’t need any additional infrastructure (cables, SIM card, etc.). Simply install the tracker on your returnable packaging and it directly connects to the cloud, sending you all the data you need.

Custom alerts & dashboards

Receive alerts about allocation, rotation, and retention of your returnable packaging

Customize alerts and dashboards in such a way that it suits your internal business logic. Our returnable packaging tracking solution allows you to set-up alerts that can vary in severity and show you how long it took for an alert to be resolved.
