Kite Packaging Portsmouth - Case study

A South Coast based business challenged Kite to reduce the amount of expanded foam used to pack their precision engineered and high value aerospace parts.

The local team worked with Kite’s specialist service and solutions team using Wrap & Hold to develop an alternative pack that eliminated the foam, reduced the time to pack the products by 70% and significantly reduced the pack price by over 25%. The overall size of the outer corrugated carton also reduced by over 20% which will reduce the customer’s logistics costs by a further 8% - this is a typical example of the work Kite do for customers, reducing not only packaging costs but further costs in the supply chain.

Wrap and Hold is a new product recently launched by Kite exclusively for Kite regional distribution centre customers, more information about the product can be found here.
