The packed part can go away immediately and this means that the customer only needs to reserve a very small space for this activity. Dennis: "Because you don't have multiple machine parts and stacks of packaging stored there and few people working there, in fact a super-oiled operation."
In conjunction with other Meilink Chain Solutions
It is striking to see how little you see this tightly planned packaging method among industrial producers, Dennis points out: "Meilink can set up, flexibly staff and execute this approach on a customized basis at the customer's site under the banner of the Meilink Chain Solution Packing. Speaking of these solutions, the other Meilink Chain Solutions can also be deployed around this tightly planned methodology at will. For example, the Meilink Chain Solution Design for optimizing packaging design for this methodology. Consider the addition of dampers to absorb vibrations during industrial transport and brackets to fix machine parts in the packaging. And, of course, a design that makes it possible to pack the parts quickly. Then, under the Meilink Chain Solution Packaging, Meilink makes or assembles the packaging in question, such as from wood or cardboard, including steel frames to position the machine properly."
Flexible shell of experienced packing staff
The next step is the timely delivery of this packaging to the customer's compact outbound logistics department. Dennis: "Then Meilink's experienced packers do their job immediately. These Meilink employees operate at a high level, are trained and therefore enjoy all the benefits of the other Meilink Chain Solutions. These employees are deployed at the client in question as a flexible layer, complementing the small core team of packers at the client itself. In consultation with the customer, Meilink can quickly scale up or down this flexible layer. It is mainly intended to adequately deal with peaks at the client. The employees of Meilink are familiar with the procedures and documents of the client, and are in fact a directly deployable extension of the client. Naturally, Meilink's manager frequently consults with the client regarding this desired deployment.
Multiple benefits for the customer
The advantages are many: Only a small space occupation in the manufacturer's factory, including a minimal time demand on their own employees. Dennis: "Even if the client grows with their business, this clever logistics concept allows both the compactness of the logistics space and the size of the packing team to remain the same."
