When a company wants to streamline their packaging process, it can often be for many reasons. Reducing costs, reducing holding stock and lead times can often play a big part in a company deciding to improve the way in which they operate.
The solution isn’t always easy to find, especially in large companies that may have a number of different processes and departments within their organisation.
They were buying a range of corrugated boxes and were having to wait two weeks plus lead time. In busy periods this lead time was extended. The unpredictable lead time meant they were often finding themselves running out of stock and without a means of shipping orders.
We were able to implement our Maxpack DFSM system that ensured all boxes were stocked and ran with an automatic reorder level. This ensured that our customer no-longer had to worry about lead times as they had next-day delivery. Because of this implementation, production MOQs (Minimum Order Quantities) were no longer an issue, which allowed for space in their warehouse to be freed up.
Another customer came to us looking for a solution to the large range of packaging items they were ordering and utilising, which made inventory management and warehouse space both difficult.
We worked with the customer to refine their range of packaging. Reducing the boxes they were ordering from over 80 different types to 10 which incorporated range. This simplified their packaging making it easier for pickers and reducing the admin needed. They were also able to achieve cost savings as higher volumes in the core range brought reductions in prices. Refining the range and implementing Maxpack DFSM stock holding meant that their warehouse packaging storage went from over 100 pallet locations to under 25.
