The RPC Cycle

The RPC cycle begins when IFCO delivers clean RPCs to grower-shippers, who then pack the right-size RPCs with fresh produce. RPCs minimize packaging inventory, reduce costs, and seamlessly integrate into existing packing operations. They also maximize space on outbound trailers through efficient stacking. RPCs protect produce better in transit because their rigid construction supports weight and won't collapse, and their ventilation reduces heat retention, extending the shelf life of fresh produce.

  • At the distribution center, RPCs' innovative and ergonomic design makes product identification easy, reduces injuries, and creates sturdier mixed pallets.
  • At the grocery store, over 85% of produce managers surveyed preferred RPCs over corrugated boxes. IFCO's AIB-Certified service centers inspect, clean, and ship RPCs back out to growers on demand.
