Closest to operations for optimal reactivity
Innovation and commitment are the watchwords of United Biscuits. The company's project with FM Logistic is part of its business environmental impact monitoring programme. To achieve its target of a 20% reduction in packaging used by 2015, the company is seeking an environmentally responsible solution for the thousands of promotional batches its sells in France each year.
To date, the company has been using "flow-pack" technology: a machine creates a plastic package from non-shrinkable film which is used to wrap the products that make up the batches.
To replace this technology, we recommend using a repositionable adhesive. Designed and implemented entirely by FM Logistic's co-packing teams, this innovative solution was set up in just twelve weeks.
"Once the project was agreed and negotiated, FM's compliance with its commitments was exemplary: implementation deadlines, launch and commissioning, compliance in execution and in the service levels provided.
In a word, the quality of the relationship throughout the project: early on in the design phase, during the development that followed and in final implementation on the production line.""
