AIAG Pallet and Lid Whitepaper 2010

List of key problems facing returnable plastic pallet and lids and several proposed solutions identified by the results of the Pallet & Lid survey.

Reduce the loss of control and visibility of reusable plastic pallets and lids across the automotive industry.

Globalization and international trade require pallets, cartons, totes, etc., that fit both supplier and customer facilities world-wide. Furthermore, these items must also fit trucks, sea containers and rail cars. The International Pallet Standard maximizes efficiency and reduces costs for global supply chains, by minimizing the number of regional and international standard pallet sizes for disposable and re-usable packaging in use.

These specifications and guidelines cover the sizes, footprints, and descriptions of various container systems applicable for use in the automotive industry. The publication includes two pallet footprints.

Traditional methods for tracking and controlling the flow and locations of returnable containers have not been robust enough to ensure that suppliers have the right amount of containers, at the right location, at the right time. The result is millions of dollars in extra packaging costs and increased waste in the supply chain.

AIAG's Returnable Transport Items Visibility Best Practices provides a number of best practices businesses can employ to increase visibility when sending Returnable Transport Items (RTIs) back to their points of origin once the parts they contained have been used.
