Strategic Packaging Supply Chain Assessment reduces total cost of logistics while positively improving environmental impact:
"Combining our proven Nefab engineering-design history with our global logistics footprint is yielding game changing cost reduction results for hundreds of companies around the world", says Anders Mork EVP Nefab Telecom-Datacom Division"
Recently, Nefab embarked on a cost take out program with a Fortune 100 company which featured our Supply Chain Assessment. The results were staggering. A contract manufacturer was shipping Electronic Control Panels while traditionally using corrugated packaging, wooden pallets and stretch film. The mode of transportation was AIR from Shanghai to Europe and North America.
“At first glance, this method of packing and shipping is the norm in our industry, but after a deep dive assessment, we were able to uncover a variety of ways to optimize the packaging footprint, reduce freight costs, reduce packaging waste and streamline logistics and handling efficiencies.”
The project group, spearheaded by Nefab carefully reviewed the entire global flow including all relevant touch points. The results were 6 figure quarterly savings, major waste reduction (eliminating plastic dunnage and stretch film), savings on weight reduction by using the Nefab L.W. Pallet, and increasing shipment loads from 60 units to 90 units based on clever-intelligent redesign which improved stacking.
"Great Teamwork supported by reoccurring Communication, Global Coordination, and putting our Customers needs first were the key to this successful project", concludes Anders Mork. ;
