Inner Packaging

Inner packaging protects the product from transport and warehousing damage whilst inside the outer packaging. An example could be blocking packaging that keeps products fixed and separated during transport or foam cushioning that absorbs shock in transportation and loading. There are many ways to protect the products from corrosion and electro static discharges with special plastic bags or other additives inside the packaging. Nefab has vast experience in all areas of product protection, with a long history as supplier of sensitive products to the telecom, automotive and defence industry.

Returnable Packaging

Returnable packaging is usually a cost efficient alternative if the goods flow is reasonably large and the points of distribution are quite few. A rule of thumb is that the packaging should complete at least four cycles per year to be profitable, compared to expendable packaging. Nefab engineers work closely with the customer to develop the appropriate packaging solution. Nefab has more than 35 years experience in the design of reusable packaging and across the globe you can find anything from vegetables to high tech equipment being shipped in Nefab boxes, crates and totes.

Based on the analysis, an optimal packaging solution is designed to protect the product and minimize logistics costs throughout the entire flows. Nefab also offers cost reduction programs for existing packaging solutions and flows. Through applications of Nefabīs proprietary analytical tools, cost savings related to existing packaging can be identified.

Cost Reduction Programs

In a rapidly changing and competitive business environment, the need to improve and to reduce cost is a continuous activity. In the area of packaging and logistics, Nefab has developed a method to systematically review existing processes in order to identify areas of potential cost-take-out. This procedure is referred to as a "Pack-Audit". Performing such an audit will reveal whether there are opportunities for cost-take-outs. Using proprietary software tools, Nefab will also calculate the value of potential savings. This service is offered as a consultancy either on a price per project basis or using a "sharing of savings" approach.

  • Contract packing of customer products
