CEVA Logistics partnered with ARCO and Packsize to redesign their labor intensive box creation and transportation process to increase throughput, to boost productivity and to reduce their environmental footprint.
Previously, CEVA was manually erecting stock boxes in their 100,000 square meter healthcare-focused facility. These boxes were sealed by hand and manually moved from one station to another. The team worked together to architect an automated packaging process using Packsize solutions to produce a perfectly sized package for each order. These boxes were then erected and the bottoms were sealed. This allowed CEVA employees to then pick products directly into the right box.
Those boxes were then routed via conveyor to the next location where they were weighed for accuracy. The boxes were then automatically closed and the proper shipping labels were applied. Finally, the packages were scanned and sorted by carrier so that they could be routed for accurate delivery.
Together with Packsize, CEVA Logistics and ARCO created a robust packaging process that resulted in their products being shipped faster and more sustainably than ever before.
