Orbis opens new pallets centre
Orbis has opened a reusable packaging management centre in Mexico to support Rexam’s facilities in the country.
Orbis works with can maker Rexam to provide management of its plastic pallets which are used to transport cans from Rexam’s manufacturing plants to customer filling plants.
Through its service Orbis manages this process, including demand planning, shipping, tracking, cleaning, sorting and replenishment improving the flow of the product through the supply chain.
“Though this service centre was established late in 2012, it has now been set up as a fully equipped cleaning and sorting facility,” said Sergio Cabrera (pictured far right at the opening ceremony), Orbis beverage service centre manager.
“The Centre will be instrumental to continuing our work with Rexam from a management perspective, providing visibility to all of their assets so that Rexam can get the most out of their reusable packaging system.”
