The load capacity utilisation of today's transport vehicles is less than 80 percent. This is evidenced by the EHI study "Trends in der Handelslogistik" (trends in retail logistics). This figure raises questions in times of environmental awareness and sustainability. However, a quick look inside one of these vans is enough to answer how this value is generated: sparsely loaded Euro pallets, half-filled cardboard boxes, and E2 boxes which cannot be used efficiently due to unmatched packaging. This low degree of volume utilisation inflates logistics costs unnecessarily, especially in the area of storage and transport. Time to change the way we think!
"A low degree of volume utilisation causes logistics costs to rocket quickly and leads to an unnecessary increase in the CO2 balance. This is why we have developed a packaging series that is optimally adapted to the requirements of our customers while also taking up the aspect of resource conservation", explains Marco von Döllen, Operations Manager at FAMAC® Packaging. Thanks to the FAMAC® rectangular container series, unused space in E2 boxes is a thing of the past. These containers, which have volumes ranging from 600 ml to 5,700 ml, can be individually combined and stacked perfectly after filling. Due to the ideal dimensions for E2 boxes and the uniform lid size, any combination always ensures optimum capacity utilisation. This results in an annual savings potential of up to 63 percent. Even if different container sizes are used, the series offers efficient use of E2 boxes for up to 40 containers. This makes it easy to spare disposable cardboard boxes and switch to reusable E2 containers.
The modular system of our rectangular container series helps you not only protect the environment, but also save money. With our new FAMAC® comparison calculator, we have developed a service tool that calculates the annual savings potential and compares it against conventional containers and buckets. The pre-set calculation values can be adapted individually and handled intuitively. Calculate now your personal savings potential with our rectangular containers.
As a FAMAC® 3 in 1 series, our rectangular containers are remarkable – not just thanks to their resource conservation and savings potential. They also combine the following advantages: Intuitive design, a unique high-quality look and outstanding machinability. In a nutshell, this means:
Unique high-quality look
Thus, our 3 in 1 series not only rounds off the demands of bottlers and manufacturers but also opens up sales-boosting marketing opportunities.
As packaging experts in the food and pharmaceutical industries, we are not only committed to always offer our customers the best solutions, but also to act as environmentally friendly as possible. For this reason, we take ecological aspects into account as early as in the development stage of our products.
"While we strive to improve the CO2 balance with our rectangular container series, our company-wide PÖPPELMANN blue® initiative aims at achieving a closed material cycle", explains Marco von Döllen. This is possible because some of our products are made from 100 percent post-consumer recycled material, i.e. plastic waste produced by the private or commercial end consumer and disposed of in the recyclables bin.
Our divisions also focus on the aspects of reducing, reusing and recycling in order to conserve resources throughout the entire supply chain. This way, we can be sure that we use plastics responsibly while at the same time provide innovative solutions.
