They received an award in the "Logistics & Material Flow" category for the "DashV1Box - DashBoxes by Mondi: The universal fit for your Dashboard range" solution, developed for an automotive manufacturer.
Supply chain complexity prompted a major German car producer to seek a universal solution to replace 35 packaging variants for more than 2,000 different SKUs.
The DashV1Box introduces a single standard packaging that has reduced processing costs by 31% and quality complaints by 80%.
This sustainable solution uses 100% corrugated material.
The unique ergonomics made it difficult to find a one-fit solution, but DashV1Box recognizes that the ends of the dashboards are almost identical. Different component lengths are accommodated by variable fixation of the corrugated fittings. The result is a standardized and process-reliable packaging concept along the entire supply chain. At the same time, this optimized packaging also meets the expectations of all individual steps in the production process.
“We are particularly happy that the packaging has found a secondary use during handling in the workshop. The components can be removed from the folding box with the corrugated material inner sections and placed on the workshop floor – secure and clean and, above all, sustainable,” said Jan-Willem Kleppers, marketing and sales director of Mondi Corrugated Packaging.
