Reusable Packaging Association

RPA connects the industry to expand, innovate

and validate reusable packaging systems

The Reusable Packaging Association (RPA) is a non-profit trade organization representing and promoting the common and pro-competitive business interests of member suppliers and users of reusable packaging products and services.  Since 1999, RPA (formerly the Reusable Pallet and Container Coalition), has been a collaboration between supply chain partners to advocate the environmental and economic benefits of reusable transport packaging.

RPA member companies include businesses that:  supply raw materials; design, make and market transport packaging products; provide pooling and logistics services; use and handle the reusable packaging in processing, manufacturing, distribution and retail environments; and offer technology and automation services to the industry.

RPA works to expand markets through our trade show pavilions, educational platforms and promotional activities. We spur innovation through industry best practices, process optimization and technology awareness. And we validate the impact of reuse through research, data modeling and case studies.

Taken together, RPA supports members today for a stronger business climate tomorrow, fulfilling the promise of a zero-waste, resource-efficient and highly-visible supply chain through reusable packaging.
