CIRCULAR ECONOMY
FOR FREIGHT PACKAGING

TVM invites you to help in the challenge of ensuring better reuse of freight packaging in a world without incentives and without transparency.

Find out below what you can do and how you can participate in Odyssey Momentum, November 13-15, 2020.

An invitation to get involved

During Odyssey Momentum, November 13-15, five selected teams will build new solutions to the challenge of TVM. The most important result is that these new solutions are valuable for you.
Therefore, TVM is inviting all players in the supply chain, from truck drivers to planners and CTOs to CEOs, to work with the teams, be the first to test and give feedback to the solutions, and then help launch the best solutions after the event.

WHY WE'RE LOOKING FOR YOUR HELP

Freight packaging is lost, stolen, or simply not reused. This costs transporters €150,000 to €3,000,000 a year, in addition to the environmental impact of replacing trolleys, pallets, and crates. Reuse or repair often costs more than buying new.
Freight packaging may look simple, but involves many factors. It may cost more or less than the actual product, belonging to the transporter, producer or marketplace. One solution won’t fit all, and supply chain stakeholder interests do not align. Who wants to transfer packaging ownership with every delivery?
Circular Economy for Freight Packaging Impact
Though the technology exists (IoT, transactions), it is proprietary and different systems and incentives cannot collaborate on an application level. Stakeholders are unwilling to align on one protocol. Everyone must benefit.

Impact

If the supply chain aligns on one transparency and accountability protocol for freight packaging attributes (localize, identify, certify, return, reuse), this unlocks a whole new efficient packaging market with business opportunities throughout the chain.

WHAT WE ARE BUILDING

The challenge for the teams and everyone helping them:

“Create a transparent logistics protocol so anyone can localize, identify, certify, return, reuse, and repair freight packaging by incentivizing contributions by all supply chain stakeholders. Consider accountability and compliance.”

Find out what each team is building and which part of the problem they are tackling, and how you can contribute.
