    Reducing the costs of protecting consumer goods in the supply chain

    The total packaging costs driven by moving, storing and protecting your materials through each stage of the supply chain can really add up. We've made it our mission to help customers focus on reducing their total packaging driven costs. These are typically:


    • Transport inefficiencies - Caused by poor load units or truck / container use, or issues on inbound loads
    • Handling inefficiencies - Double handling created by non-standard or damaged packaging
    • Storage inefficiencies - Inability to rack or stack equipment high enough, mixed packaging types, footprints or carrying capacities
    • Product quality (inbound) - Damaged packaging or product, spoiled product, hygiene issues
    • Packaging ownership issues - Administrative costs of managing suppliers or manufacturer owned equipment, the cost, hassle, waste and emissions associated with one- way packaging


    • Storage inefficiencies - Stacking/storing drums and fixed wall containers, and space restrictions on owned equipment at production facilities
    • Handling inefficiencies - Issues of waste, cost and safety with decanting and emptying containers. And the costs associated with disposal of one way packaging such as drums and fibre board packaging
    • Product quality issues - Contamination, hygiene and batch size issues. Non-standard packaging issues within processing and production facilities
    • Ownership - Where capital is tied up in non-core container assets, highlighted in non-peak periods when they sit unused


    • Transport use - Truck and container issues, as well as load containment and stabilisation
    • Downstream acceptance issues - Retailer and wholesaler reluctance or non-acceptance of pallets
    • Packaging ownership issues - Administrative costs of managing suppliers or manufacturer owned equipment, the cost, hassle, waste and emissions associated with one- way packaging
    • One-Way packaging waste - Handling and waste management issues created at the receiver's end
