Quick to implement, and offering unparalleled insight into your supply chain’s key performance indicators, your operation can benefit from our comprehensive, manageable reusables program, scaled to meet the needs of your unique business requirements.

  • Suppliers and Factories can place orders for replacement containers manually, or have orders automatically generated on their behalf based on historical demand to ensure your supply chain has what it needs to operate at peak efficiency
  • Contracts offer program administrators comprehensive control over user site access, location shipping and receiving privileges, and a suite of management tools
  • View critical performance metrics and run analytics from a fully-customizable Dashboard display to ensure your operation is running smoothly and saving you money
WAVE reusables cloud platform fills the gap in the standard “ERP-TMS-WMS” enterprise technology suite by providing reusable container management services as an independent, standalone application, with the potential to be realized as a fully integrated application as it matures, allowing companies to manage containers without having to make customizations to enterprise ERP installations. In its simplest form, WAVE reusables SaaS will act completely independent of the current technology stack. In its most mature operation, WAVE reusables SaaS will be setup to integrate directly with each of the software applications, providing complete reusable container tracking in addition to an assortment of operational efficiencies.
