Logimarkt offers logistic solutions such as customized packaging, equipment and machines or storage systems for all industries.
How we design customized packaging
We adapt the packaging to the operators, the products and the processes they must go through.
The components (products, car pieces, etc.) must be easily inserted and removed at the destination without any effort.
The packaging must be able to be folded and opened quickly, effortlessly and in an intuitive way, so the operator can easily identify the content. The packaging will be tilted towards the operator and raised at the optimum height, so the body movements are as natural as possible, and the level of effort is reduced.
This helps to better protect the products and the packaging, increase the work speed and the operators’ motivation.
Transportation and storage costs usually exceed the returnable packaging costs. Therefore, we design industrial packaging, so the density of the products placed inside them, as well as the number of packaging per truck, increase.
Where possible, we try to perform a ‘nesting’ of the pieces inside the box or the container. We do this without affecting the ergonomics and work speed.
When returning, we fold the plastic containers in order to reduce the transportation and storage costs.
From the outset, industrial packaging must be designed to resist to as many work cycles as possible.
We design the plastic containers and internal separators in a robust way, so they can resist the intensive handling on a long term.
To accomplish this, we run compression, vibration and shock tests for the packaging we develop, and we monitor the safety of the products and the packaging during transportation.
We analyze the products and understand which are the sensitive parts, and which are the strong ones. This way we protect the sensitive areas and make sure there are no components which might hook or cut the dividing systems placed inside the boxes or plastic containers.
Through the tests we run, we check that there are no collisions between the products during transportation.
We use scratch-resistant materials for the painted parts, ESD materials for the pieces that contain electronic components, and foam or flexible material separators for the pieces that must be protected from shocks.
We invest our efforts into designing sustainable products and take care of the environmental footprint. One of our main concerns is the density of products per cubic meter and how we can optimize transportation costs. Our packaging is thought to be reused for several applications with minimal interventions.
We adapt the packaging to your specific requirement after we do a 360° evaluation and make a comparative analysis of existing possibilities.
We compare the total logistic cost in case of several packaging alternatives, which include:
- Transport costs
- Return transport cost
- Handling time for input & output operation and for stacking
- Amortization of packaging investment
- Storage costs
Why is Logimarkt different?
We have a holistic approach when choosing what packaging solution to propose to our customers.
Most providers are specialized in one packaging technology: thermoforming, corrugated plastic, metallic racks, textile dunnage, EPP or technical foam dividers, and for any product, they design a packaging solution from the technology they know better and they have available production capacity. As the saying goes “if all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail”.
At Logimarkt, we have a different approach.
Logimarkt is the only European packaging company that has own internal production for several technologies: injection molding, thermoforming, corrugated plastic & lamination, sewing of textile dunnage, technical foam converting and EPP.
We are cooperating as well with other qualified partner manufacturers to cope with high peak demands, but due to our direct expertise in manufacturing, we are able to control quality and prices. We have strong ties with producers in USA or in Asia, to acquire innovative components or technologies, in order to better serve our customers and have the latest know how.
