Packaging manufacturers need to be able to react quickly to specific customer requirements. With optimally integrated processes, those requirements can be met.
As a supplier of manufacturing companies, the packaging industry is affected by a variety of different factors. These include customer-specific manufacturing as well as competitive environments and cost pressures. As a result, packaging manufacturers have to be flexible and often need to respond to customer needs on short notice.
Manufacturers find themselves trying to deal with severe fluctuations in demand on one hand and a strong desire for balanced production on the other. This sector is not only impacted by an increasing degree of internationalization but also a desire for sustainable and innovative solutions.

In this field, it is essential that value chains are optimized on a holistic, end-to-end basis – from customer to supplier. This includes order fulfillment, manufacturing, procurement, purchasing, and logistics.
Optimization begins with customer-focused supply chain segmentation. On this basis, standardized concepts for competitive supply chains are developed and implemented.
Key topics for packaging manufacturers include the optimized integration of planning, order fulfillment, manufacturing, and procurement processes. On top of this, it is also essential for many companies to shorten lead times and to implement more flexible supply chains in cooperation with their suppliers.
