The truck has on board a range of packroom equipment, including a low profile machine, Sprick paper systems, 55 system, air cushioning and an over-head delivery system, allowing Kites team to find the most effective bespoke solutions for Nissans operation.
A number of key tier 1 suppliers attended the day, with everyone involved having the opportunity to explore the mobile test facilitys packaging solutions.
With JIT delivery (Just-in-time manufacturing) being a critical factor in the automotive sector, Kites North East Regional Distribution Centre located in Washington is situated close to many surrounding automotive businesses, therefore ensuring their production lines operate efficiently and uncompromised.
With the leading packaging suppliers enhanced service compared to their competitors, Kite understands the need for leading businesses in the automotive industry to be able to meet a range of requirements.
The open day oversaw Kite demonstrating how Nissan can meet these, including elements such as, reducing damages using innovative surface protection materials, utilising AutoCAD and Solidworks to visualise packaging concepts, reduce transport costs by improving cubic capacity through design and minimise environmental impact.
A spokesperson from Kite Packaging said: We thoroughly enjoyed the day at Nissan in which we were able to explore innovations within the packaging industry that provide Nissan with effective, bespoke solutions. Thank you to all tier 1 suppliers for making the day such a huge success.
