LOSCAM, an industry leader in pallet and container pooling solutions, recently addressed the Australian Institute of Packaging National Conference on the latest trends in retail ready returnable packaging.
Presented by David Edwards, Loscam’s lead in new product development, the address was titled “Evolution Of Returnable Packaging – From Humble Pallet To Sophisticated Retail Solutions”. The presentation examined the increasing level of interest in store ready packaging equipment which helps manufacturers reduce packaging costs and retailers reduce in-store replenishment costs.
With several retailers and manufacturers in Australia beginning to embrace the economic and environmental benefits that retail ready returnable packaging brings, David’s presentation highlighted both local and global examples where these types of packaging solutions have not only reduced supply chain costs but also contributed to an increase in sales.
Loscam has formed a partnership with Polymer Logistics, Europe’s leading innovator in development and delivery of retail ready packaging solutions. The partnership embraces the wide reach of Loscam operations throughout Asia Pacific and Polymer Logistics first hand experience at delivering these solutions across Europe and North America.
“Instead of Loscam trying to develop new solutions in the retail ready space, we can leverage Polymers expertise and products to introduce retail ready solutions that suit our Australia, New Zealand, SE Asia and Chinese customers. Now Loscam can offer unique solutions that customers won’t find anywhere else. Innovation is crucial to Loscam and our relationship with Polymer Logistics will deliver real value to our customers” David said.
With twelve international speakers from nine countries and thirty four speakers in total over the two-days, the 2012 Australian Institute of Packaging National Conference was designed for both personal and professional development and offers tremendous networking opportunities with like-minded packaging experts.
