Management of empty containers (LGBS)

Management of empty containers (LGBS)

Simple and efficient

The empty container management system (LGBS) uses new standardized company containers: letter receptacles and outer containers. These containers can be processed fully automatically from acceptance through to delivery.

What's more, a standard set of rules creates greater transparency, efficiency and flexibility for all parties involved in managing empty containers.

Fact-based sourcing of new containers, efficient container management and simple ordering processes make it possible to meet needs effectively in all relevant areas.
