Not convinced? Here's more reason to get involved in this exciting E2E project.
The Project has been designed to help companies reduce waste, improve speed-to-market and increase transportation efficiency.
Different packaging sizes lead to lost opportunities in maximising the use of space. Inefficient use of this space results in fewer units taking up more pallets and, therefore, more containers. This leads to rising expenses, increased time to market and negatively impacts a company’s environmental footprint.
Today’s inefficiencies can also mean that certain products need to be re-packaged when fed into new systems (automatic warehouses) and store formats; again increasing costs and time to market. It also increases waste.
Modularisation can not only help reduce waste, by reducing the need for units to be re-packaged, it can also reduce a company’s all-important environmental footprint by improving stackability. This helps increase the number of units transported in a journey, reducing the number of “empty miles” and increasing transportation efficiency.
By working on this modularisation project, members of The Consumer Goods Forum can help bring about the global roll out of modularised packaging, supporting visible trends like ecommerce, automation, omnichannel and traceability, as well as meeting increased regulatory compliance.
As such, the project will focus on seeking value creation in managing more complexity in the supply chain, secondary packaging, fill levels, waste and standardisation of end-of-line automation.
