CCLS partners with Loop on zero-waste packaging in Canada
[Toronto, ON] Canada Cartage Logistics Solutions (CCLS) is pleased to announce a new partnership with Loop, the global reuse platform aimed at eliminating waste and greatly improving the delivery, design and features of products.
Loop provides a wide variety of food and household products in refillable packaging, such as ice cream, sauces, snacks, pet food, and toothpaste from some of Canada and the world’s most popular brands, including, but not limited to, Loblaw’s President’s Choice, Nature’s Path and Häagen Dazs. On-line orders are sent directly to Loop customers’ homes in reusable packaging, and when empty, consumers return the re-useable empty packages to Loop.
CCLS, one of Canada’s fastest growing fulfillment and distribution firms, will fulfill customer orders for over 100 Loop SKUs. Many products require complex storage solutions designed for Loop’s ambient, refrigerated and frozen products, and will be managed by CCLS to HACCP food safety standards. Loop’s specially-designed totes ensure that the products maintain temperature integrity during shipping to the customer. CCLS will also manage the reverse logistics for Loops reusable containers.
“Loop’s mission to reduce single-use packaging is an important way to help the environment.” says Scott Lane, Senior VP & General Manager, Canada Cartage Logistics Solutions (CCLS). “We are proud to be part of this revolution in Canada to reduce waste and replace it with reusable packaging, while providing a logistics environment adhering to strict food safety.”
“CCLS has been a strong partner in its commitment to meet Loop’s stringent requirements for quality and food safety,” said Steve Gendreau, Loop’s COO. “Canada Cartage’s supply chain support has been outstanding for Loop’s recent launch with Loblaw. Our results have exceeded our early expectations and we look forward to utilizing CCLS’s expertise to assist in our growth.”
