Intelleflex, a provider of on-demand data visibility solutions for tracking and managing returnable assets as well as for monitoring and managing the temperature and condition of the assets’ contents, has joined the Reusable Packaging Association (RPA).

“Intelleflex and our partners believe that intelligent pallets, containers, totes and bins that are embedded with XC3 Technology condition monitoring tags represent a huge opportunity for improving supply chain operations and customer profitability,” said Kevin Payne, Senior Director of Marketing for Intelleflex. “Intelleflex looks forward to working with RPA member companies to pro­mot­e the value and capabilities of intelligent reusable containers as the preferred pack­ag­ing solu­tion to improve operations in the food and pharmaceutical cold supply chains.”

“The capabilities to track and manage assets, and to monitor and preserve the condition of products, are critical to delivering a stronger return on investment of reusables,” said Jerry Welcome, President, RPA. “Solutions provided by companies like Intelleflex play a critical role in the reusable supply chain. We are pleased to have Intelleflex as a new member.”
