Packaging logistics in the manufacturing industry and retail

Packaging logistics is a many-sided topic and consists of planning, evaluation, testing and optimization of packaging. Our focus is on the analysis and optimization of all processes in which transport packagings, reusable transport items and load units are involved.


We do not only support you during the planning and conceptual phase but also consult you during the implementation and optimization of your packaging processes. At this we draw on our longstanding project expertise, our packaging testing laboratory and the optimization software UNIT.
