With a reusable crate packaging system, breakage and damage during the transport of fruit and vegetables is significantly reduced.
According to a study by the Fraunhofer Institute for Material Flow and Logistics (IML), the breakage rate for single-use cartons along the entire supply chain was 4.2%, while that for reusable crates was only 0.1%.
Added to this is the environmental benefit of reusing the same carton in the transport of goods.

Methodology
