Preventing damages in transportation

Opportunity
A major poultry food company automatically packages products in waxed boxes. 2.1 % of boxes were damaged in shipments and refused by wholesalers. Customers also complained that unloading and moving the skids was being difficult and dangerous.

Solution
CGP EXPAL Inc supplied the anti-skid sheets STABULON™ 230 applied by robotic inserters. Anti-skid sheets reinforce stability and prevent slippage due to road vibrations.

Results
The poultry company was able to ship skids to wholesalers across the USA without damages. They satisfied their customers and restored relationship with the transport companies that formerly had come to refuse to do some destinations. Preventing damages resulted in savings of over 60 000 $ per year.
