Case Study

Smurfit Kappa SupplySmart takes cost out by defining an optimised packaging solution for solar panels

The challenge

  • Finding efficiencies to retain competitive advantage in the highly competitive solar panel industry
  • To find a solution that used local resources/material and met strict performance requirements 
  • AU Optronics were looking for opportunities in process improvement and cost take out to help them stay competitive


Our approach

  • Using our SupplySmart process, we carried out a scan of their supply chain to assess where efficiencies could be achieved.
  • Our tools Pack Expert and Paper to Box enabled us to create an optimised packaging solution with a completely new flute profile which could be produced locally.



The result

  • New improved optimised packaging bespoke to their needs
  • 10% saving on packaging costs
  • Locally produced solution
