RTE is Returnable Transit Equipment and RTP is Returnable Transit Packaging which are the same thing. These terms refer to plastic crates, boxes, plastic pallets, pallet boxes and metal roll cages or indeed any equipment used to transport goods and which are then returned after use.
Renting equipment provides maximum flexibility as additional equipment can be ordered as and when necessary. There is no capital expenditure required as there would be for purchases just very economic rental costs. PPS can also manage the equipment to prevent losses.
Renting equipment allows companies to make better use of their resources and focus on their core business whilst PPS takes care of their equipment pool.
