Cost-optimised transport packaging for bumpers by Delta Packaging

A cost-effective and process-optimised transport packaging solution with the most reliable protection for the bumpers of a renowned German automobile manufacturer - that is the result of the collaboration of DELTA Packaging Services with Magna, a world-leading automotive supplier.

In collaboration with the automotive supplier Magna, Delta Packaging has developed cost-effective and process-optimised U-shape packaging with the most reliable protection for the bumpers of a renowned German automobile manufacturer.

An additionally integrated corrugated board bridge provides the previously missing protection of the outer component tongue.

A requirement for the successful development of the innovative corrugated board construction by the packaging specialist was the comprehensive analysis of both the packaging used previously as well as the entire supply cycle of the client.

With significant cost reduction and easy handling, the optimised U-shape packaging for the bumpers impresses in every aspect. Compared to the solution used previously by a renowned automotive supplier, the smart corrugated board packaging can be erected much quicker and more straightforward. With the new concept, the packaging experts from Delta Packaging reduced the packing time by an impressive 30 percent. The entire packing process can also be implemented by one employee instead of the previously required two.

Due to the evenly designed outer walls of the packaging, the risk of lacerations can now also be excluded with certainty. A further advantage of the new construction is the ingenious folding technique, which guarantees an extremely high inherent stability. An additionally integrated corrugated board bridge provides the previously missing protection of the outer component tongue.  Despite the use of higher-value materials, Delta Packaging achieved clearly noticeable savings of around 60,000 Euro per year for his client thanks to the holistically designed concept.

Before implementing the corrugated board solution for the transportation of the bumpers, a detailed analysis of the previously used packaging and the associated process sequences of the client’s entire supply cycle was made. For this purpose, Delta Packaging used state-of-the-art analytical tools as well as its know-how in process consulting and packaging. With the result, the packaging specialist demonstrated yet again its expertise in the development of holistic and creative packaging concepts, which achieve sustainable cost optimisation for the client.
