Across the world we’re spending billions shipping air – the gaps in our pallets, the space in our boxes, in poorly filled containers and under-utilised vehicles. Are you a company that regularly packs or repacks pallets/containers? Are your packing solutions optimised? Are you planning on redesigning packaging for your products to move away from plastic or for any other reason? Producing optimal packing designs can reduce the number of pallets and containers used to move your goods, in turn reducing logistics costs and environmental impact.

For any company who ships goods, optimising packing and pallet layouts can have the following benefits:

  • Reducing total number of pallets or containers which can have a huge financial impact
  • Stable packing designs so that less products are damaged in transport and workplace accidents are less likely
  • Facilitating the planning of mixed pallets of complementary items to maximise fill
  • Packing containers so that use of supports within the container can be planned for rather than determined adhoc as packing takes place 

The other major advantage in reducing the number of pallets or containers packed is the number of pallets/containers for onward distribution is also reduced, having a beneficial environmental effect.

Our software determines the optimum layouts for single or multiple products onto boxes, cases, pallets and containers. Beyond this it optimises over full loads (rather than single pallets) based on overall demand. This means that as small changes are implemented, the impact of scaling up these changes can be quickly calculated. These efficiencies can then be further modelled through the distribution of product with our routing and scheduling services.
