More than three thousand packaging articles in different materials resulted in high packaging and transportation costs for one of Nefab's customers. The customer turned to Nefab for a total cost analysis. The client, who operates in heavy automation, had frequent shipments for which each item of wooden packaging was made by hand, which was time consuming. This meant heavy packages, expensive shipping and packages that were difficult to handle at the end destination. The efficiency and product protection were also affected by the fact that each employee had to decide what type of packaging and size to use.
"It was possible to reduce the number of packaging articles from more than three thousand to about three hundred standard articles. This has reduced the customer's packaging costs by 25%."
