ORBIS to also Feature Latest in Reusable Packaging Products

ORBIS Corporation, a leading international manufacturer of sustainable reusable packaging and an expert in supply chain optimization, will be at Pack Expo in Chicago in November to walk customers, system integrators and media through its “5-Step Supply Chain Optimization Process” which the company just revealed to the public this year. A member of the Reusable Packaging Association, ORBIS will exhibit in the Reusable Packaging Pavilion.

ORBIS’ 5-step process of supply chain optimization improves the flow and management of product throughout the customer’s supply chain, for overall cost reduction and maximum extraction of sustainability efficiencies. At Pack Expo 2014 audiences will receive a personal first-hand tour of this process from the experts who manage it for Fortune 500 international companies. The process, which offers customized solutions, measurable ROI and organized sustainability, as well as significant environmental benefits, has been a proven success for many of today’s leading companies in the industrial, consumer, food and beverage industries.

In addition to featuring its “optimization process,” ORBIS will also showcase new reusable packaging products and services they’ve developed to help companies move product safely and efficiently within the supply chain, with significant cost reduction. Demonstrations at the ORBIS booth will include an array of innovative designs the company has developed to shift traditional thinking for reusable packaging and how those new designs benefit customers:
