Automating information to optimise the co-packing supply chain process


Automating information to optimise the co-packing supply chain process

Increasing volumes and growing demands in the consumer, e-commerce and pharmaceutical markets, such as customised products to meet national and local needs and standards, impose ever higher requirements to an effective and efficient contract packaging. Today real-time information is a must-have in order to drive, deliver, adapt and improve workflows as well as to measure, report and raise

the service quality according to the changing needs of your customers. A manual system is no longer capable to fulfil these requirements towards speed, complexity and accuracy. Kuehne + Nagel now works with a new, state-of-the art contract packaging solution to provide the transparency you need.
