The newest member to join the Reusable Packaging Association, Federal Supply Services International, brings with it unique capabilities and experience within the reusable supply chain. The veteran-owned and -operated business supplies reusables that support the US government and its Department of Defense integrated supply chain management system.

“The Association grows broader and stronger each time a new member joins us,” said Jerry Welcome, President of the RPA. “Federal Supply Services Int. is further proof that reusable packaging solutions can impact sustainability for even the most complex supply chains, no matter where the product is being sent.”

The company’s flagship product is its reusable G-PAK EZup pallet packing, shipping and storage system that is in use by the military in the United States and overseas for a variety of missions ranging from transport of medical equipment to warehouse logistics to long-term storage.

“We joined the RPA to become associated with other companies that are working toward a similar goal of improving the supply chain and protecting the environment with reusable packaging while positively impacting the bottom line for our customers,” said Glen Baldridge, CEO, Federal Supply Services International. “Through the RPA, we can develop new relationships and networking opportunities to support our efforts to grow and move into the commercial sector. We know RPA is the right path and partner to help us unite all the pieces necessary for success.”

Federal Supply Services International is headquartered in New Boston, Ohio. Baldridge will serve as the company’s representative to the RPA.
