Substantial savings through packaging performance

Sometimes, quality and uniformity are everything − especially when it comes to packaging.

BillerudKorsnäs helped a global apparel company, with production in China and sales all over the world, to achieve substantial cost savings with an optimised transport packaging system. The boxes were made lighter and stronger, resulting in less waste throughout the supply chain and significant operational savings. BillerudKorsnäs was there all the way – from idea to implementation.

The apparel company, with most of its production in Asia, contracted more than 400 different OEMs in China to manufacture and pack its products. The company spent a lot of time and resources on coordinating the OEMs and making sure that the right packaging reached the right OEM at the right time. The quality of the packaging also varied a great deal and was often poor. The automatic handling systems in their distribution centres suffered from low productivity due to a high amount of broken boxes and a variety of sizes and designs, which required costly manual handling.
