Samsung, Packsize receive Australian supply chain excellence award

Packsize International together with its customer Samsung Electronics Australia received the ‘Excellence in Manufacturing Supply Chains’ award during the recent Smart Conference and Expo 2017 event.

Industry judges awarded the On Demand Packaging implementation at Samsung Australia’s Spare Parts and Logistics distribution centre in Sydney. In partnership with DB Schenker, Samsung Australia used Packsize’s custom packaging solution to streamline processes and optimise delivery services. Among the results achieved were production, inventory management, and stock control improvements, less corrugated fiberboard and void fill and reductions in product damage and freight costs.

Within three months of implementing the service, Samsung reported an approximately 50 per cent reduction in concealed damage and a 10 to 15 per cent reduction in the cubic volume of items shipped.

“Stock-takes that required three days can now be done in three hours,” said Samsung Australia’s Spare Parts and Logistics Manager David Ungar. “Packsize is a collaborative and enthusiastic partner, willing to share their experience and knowledge to deliver benefits, and is committed to a long-term relationship.”

“As packaging’s role in the value chain expands, so will our ability to support new operating models, improve logistics, create even greater customer satisfaction, and deliver smarter packaging design,” said Sean Ledbury, General Manager, Packsize International’s Asia-Pacific subsidiary, Packsize Propriety Limited.
