Efficiency with the Packsize Machine
CHALLENGE: We want to help our clients reduce costs and time-to-market by improving the overall performance of TI Group’s kitting capability. Our performance is defined as a combination of accuracy, turnaround time and total execution cost.
- We will improve accuracy through standardization. Utilizing our Data Team to create standardized documents for pick lists, forms and packing slips, using client supplied information.
- We will reduce shipping costs and better-protect the tangible goods by right-sizing all corrugate boxes and packaging.
- We will reduce time to market by implementing “On Demand Packaging”.
RESULTS: TI Group is able to execute kitting programs faster and with a very high degree of accuracy while reducing shipping costs with the Packsize Machine. Our Data Team saves time while minimizing human error through automated programming to turn “client distribution lists” into standardized forms for pick lists and packing slips; with built-in check points. Our “On Demand Packaging” capability eliminates the need for ordering corrugate boxes saving both cost and time. By “right-sizing” all packaging, clients are saving an average of 25% on shipping costs since all major shipping companies have reduced their cubic allowances and are now charging dimensional pricing on smaller packages.
