Optimising of packaging logistics in the automotive sector:
Export packing for cylinder head covers
The extreme pressure of competition in the automotive industry leads to high requirements for the most efficient packaging logistics possible. In the framework of comprehensive process optimisation, Delta developed a holistic optimisation concept for a manufacturer of cylinder head covers.
In the first step, a detailed analysis was made of the current situation. There was a particular focus on the examination of the internal transport paths, the packing processes and packing times and a check of the current packaging design.
Using the Delta principle, weak points were revealed and possible efficiency potentials identified.
Previously two different types of packaging were used for the internal and the exporting shipping process. This meant a packing time, each time, of 70 sec./component per packing process. The workflow was as follows:
1. Preparation of reusable packaging
2. Filling of reusable packaging
3. Warehousing of reusable packaging
4. Re-packing in export packaging
The optimised variant from Delta is now based on a single packaging made of mono-material (corrugated cardboard) which can be used both for internal circulation and for shipping.
For the customer this means significant improvement in the areas:
• Process time
With Delta, the manufacturer will in future save 50 seconds of labour time per component and can dispense with a complete process step (repacking).
The new packaging design, based on a mono-material design, led to more efficient use of space and to a substantial reduction of packaging costs. Also, with the adoption of 100% recyclable corrugated cardboard, a future-oriented, sustainable packaging process was established along the whole supply chain.
