IFCO Systems US has announced the grand opening of its newest reusable plastic container (RPC) Service Center in Portland, Oregon. The new facility is IFCO’s fifth U.S. service center, extending the company’s network in North America in support of the continued expansion of RPC use by leading grocery retailers throughout the U.S. and Canada. IFCO’s existing service centers are located in San Antonio, Texas; Rancho Cucamonga, California; Atlanta, Georgia, and Chicago, Illinois.

The 85,000 square foot facility washes over 40,000 RPCs per day, and ships and receives approximately 25-40 truckloads of RPCs daily for IFCO’s grocery retail partners and grower shipper customers. To meet the demand in the Northwest, IFCO’s Portland service center is expected to employ more than 100 employees.

All IFCO service centers follow strict food safety and quality assurance protocols, and employ a variety of measures to reduce environmental impact.
