One recent innovation is our Intellicore™ roll tracking system, using the world's first radio frequency identification (RFID) enabled cores. The system allows customers to automatically identify, track and locate their products at any point in the supply chain.
We are committed to being a leader in sustainability and put a great deal of focus on the three Rs: reduce, reuse and recycle. Most of the paperboard used to make Sonoco's fiber cores is 100% recycled, and much of this recovered material is from used tubes and cores taken back from customers.
