The largest multimedia and consumer electronics retailer in France has changed its logistics from disposable to reusable transport containers - thanks to WALTHER Faltboxen.
A new goods distribution centre near Paris made it possible to change to distribution to the individual stores using reusable transport containers. The aim was to avoid packaging waste in the stores and transport damage. Other requirements included easy handling with dollies and scanner-controlled goods tracking.
WALTHER Faltsysteme developed a customised despatch tower. Three folding box types with different colours are now used for the various product categories: DVD folding boxes (400 x 300 x 220 mm), book folding boxes (600 x 400 x 220 mm), and folding boxes for technical products (600 x 400 x 320 mm).
A standard size dolly (600 x 400 mm) converts the individually assembled despatch towers into a mobile unit. Customised labelling and barcode fields allow for efficiently managed, flawless logistics between central warehouse and stores.
