Furniture Supply Chain Packaging Challenges are Much More Gruelling Than Imagined. Here’s How Top Companies Are Overcoming It
One of the key problems facing the sector today are related to supply chain, logistics & packaging.
While there is little that can be done about the logistics aspect, especially when it comes to furniture exports since they are largely dictated by trends in global trade, packaging becomes a key differentiating factor between different companies.
Optimization of packaging at levels of packaging is an important exercise that needs to be undertaken to ensure best utilization of resources including materials & energy.
In this review, we take a look of some of the key elements which go into the design of optimized packaging.
This Case Study will be comparing Biodegradable Plastic Air Cushions to Paper Cushioning options, showing you differences from recycling procedures to CO2 emissions.
BOBST services for process optimization allow German packaging company Spiegel Verpackungen to increase its competitiveness significantly

Evolutionary quantum leap in inspection technology: Krones employs deep learning for empty bottle inspection
As things stand at present, water droplets very often result in false rejects. Krones therefore uses deep learning technology for the first time in its Linatronic AI. This drastically reduces both waste of material and commissioning times.
One of the first VACUNITE® bottle-to-bottle systems recently started operation in Werne/Germany. Using this system, the RCS Group, who already produce PET flakes for the non-food sector, is expanding their plastics recycling division to include the production of food-grade PET recyclate for food and beverage packaging, films and blisters.
Fully recyclable, mono-materials are harder to process, requiring strict process control and tailored equipment. Barcelona-based Bossar Packaging S.A. are addressing this challenge with a new machine design. The BMS machines feature integrated automation and drive solution from Siemens.
“Ever wondered what are the main differences between Production Analytics and Manufacturing Execution System (MES) and what they can do for your packaging factory? In this article, PackIOT’s goal is to help you understand and identify what distinguishes these two systems and help you make better decisions for your business. While it is possible to identify common functionalities between production analytics and MES, they are very different tools used for different jobs. Considering that most manufacturing companies consist of fluid operations with continual change in schedules and needs, production analytics might really be what will leverage your business to the next level.”
