Our innovative approach focuses on product and process to shape a packaging operation that delivers speed, accuracy and product integrity.

What is the throughput of your packing operation?

It is important to understand how long it takes to collate, assemble and pack your products. Sometimes even a small change can go a long way.

Here are a few things for you to consider:

What packaging are you using? Do you have a “one size box fits all” approach to your packing? If so, you could be making better use of your packers’ time. A selection of different sized boxes at your packing station, tailored to suit your product range, can mean more time shipping parcels out and less time filling voids.

Take a look at your packing stations. Are they stocked with everything the packer needs or do they have to leave the station to get some of the material needed? Do they need replenishing too often? Time spent walking to another area to get void fill, for example, could be time spent packing.

Is there room for automation? Automation can have a huge positive impact on your packing operation. From automated case tapers, strapping machines and voidfill machines to stretch wrappers and fully integrated conveyor lines, there is something to suit every size of business.

Automation

Automation can be the key to dramatically improved productivity and not just in terms of packing speed. Automated systems often take lead to a reduction in pack benches and in storage space for stock. The number of dedicated packers can also be reduced. Automation can also ensure pallet optimisation and help to reduce damages and returns.
