Repair and reuse saves thousands for meat and poultry processor

When BHJ, leading collector of processing and distributing meat, poultry and fish products started developing equipment graveyards they contacted returnable packaging service provider PPS to optimise a solution for repairing and maintaining their bulk bin pool. BHJ who own their own pallet boxes had started to see units no longer fit for purpose. It was key for a plan to be developed that could keep the BHJ supply chain in process as the bins are essential for daily movements. Having these bins out of play will disrupt traffic between sites and delay production. BHJ needed a solution to maximise the return on repairs and for the units to be clean and ready to use again when leaving PPS.
