Optimization across the full value chain
Lantmännen Unibake is running a logistics programme – LogEx – to optimize, among other, packaging, road transportation, warehousing and routing.
The packaging optimization project from Huddinge is a good example on how initiatives can emerge from local parts of the global business and serve as inspiration for others.
“Our journey with packing more pieces in each cardboard box has just begun and it will definitely continue in other countries. When we include more of our customers in the process the potential becomes even higher,” says Frank L. Breitenstein.
“What’s good for the environment is also good for business. That’s the nature of sustainability projects in logistics. The environment benefits from more sensible packaging and transportation. We save resources related to materials and costs for fuel. And the customers avoid storing and transporting air from their warehouses to their outlets. It’s optimization across the full value chain. A true win-win situation.”
To load even more products onto every truckload Lantmännen Unibake is increasing the height of a pallet with packaged products together with a selection of partners. This is one of the initiatives from the LogEx programme running in Denmark and Norway now.
