Container Logistics Management

Steel Packaging Logistics Solutions

Since 2008, Wright has offered container management, with a specialization in reverse logistics, for OEMs interested in reusable shipping container programs. Using our own container tracking software, and our team of experienced asset managers, we track, monitor, and automate crate shipments.  The logistics are carefully managed as the containers move from your factory to your dealers and then back to one of our depots for inspection, repair, and re-deployment to the factory.

Our Process

There are many benefits to a reusable container program, including better product protection and less waste. However, users only benefit if the crates are in the right place at the right time. Properly managing this inbound and outbound flow of containers requires a dedicated staff, a reliable process, and a dependable supply chain. Wright’s Proprietary Logistics Software provides container tracking, customer service management, and dynamic reporting to support all OEMs' and dealers' needs. Wright employs proven processes and systems, which have been continuously enhanced for over a decade, to manage all aspects of the supply chain, including: 

  • Coordination of return shipments from dealers
  • Crate inspection and repair
  • Scheduling of timely outbound shipments to the manufacturer

At Wright, all programs are managed through our simple-to-use web portal. Your crates or our crates; either way we can help control your costs and simplify your container logistics.
