By optimizing the packaging structure to the product, properly engineered packaging minimizes shipping damages and translates to lower per unit shipping costs through container utilization. Lower damage rates result in less waste and disposal costs.
Efficient use of packaging materials delivers optimal marketing opportunities onshelf, and extends to sustainable savings in the reduction of energy used to produce the raw materials.
r-pac engineers begin with the end in mind when approaching packaging design: from the sales floor, to the distribution center, to the container and back to the merchandise supplier.
With this approach, r-pac engineers design and maximize pallet and container configurations that deliver optimized shipping and storage requirements. Results can include the reduction of time, cost and energy consumed in the transportation and storage of finished goods.

Rigid Plastics (Clamshells and Blisters)
Partnering with Solegear Bioplastics, r-pac offers green chemistry driven performance in nontoxic bioplastics that rival and exceed traditional petroleum based plastics.
Bioplastics are formed at lower temperatures on existing equipment, requiring less energy and natural resources than PET and PP resins.
By using a stronger polymer, bioplastics allow for lightweight designs that reduce shipping weight. r-pac’s bioplastic products include recyclable and/or compostable end of life solutions
