Losing bread crates seems impossible, right? They’re not as small and inconspicuous as keys that you leave lying around somewhere, but about 70 centimeters long, 50 centimeters wide and 20 centimeters high, in short, you can’t ignore them. Nevertheless, it regularly happens that you get less bread carts returned than you delivered. Read here how you get and keep a grip on your bread trolleys, but also on other load carriers such as dollies and bread crates. 

Lost bread trolley

You send 300 bread crates loaded with bread to supermarket location A, 200 bread crates to supermarket location B and 400 bread crates to supermarket location C, but do you get 895 bread crates back? Then you still miss 5 bread crates. 5 out of 900 is not much, only 0.5%. 0.5% is not a high percentage, but if you miss a few bread crates per return, then the amount will increase considerably.  At the end of the year you will have fewer crates than you started with and this comes with a lot of costs.

Getting a grip on your bread crates

Measuring is knowledge.That’s why you need to know how many bread crates you deliver and get returned. This is how you measure how many bread crates you need in a certain period of time, who still has your bread crates at his location and how many bread crates you need to buy or rent in case of a shortage.  It sounds simple, but if you don’t do this properly, you still lose a lot of time and money.
