Case Study

A fully automated, shelf-ready solution increases efficiencies and facilitates growth for Tivall

The challenge

  • The regular American cases that Tivall were using were not giving optimum performance.
  • The manual hand packing process was slow and was becoming a bottleneck for growth as it would not be able to support the expected future growth rate and meet on time deliveries
  • In addition, due to this slow process the labour costs were high
     


 

Our approach

  • We applied the Smurfit Kappa Value Selling Process to truly understand Tivall’s challenges
  • We followed the principles of both Smurfit Kappa ShelfSmart and SupplySmart
  • Through daily interaction with SK Machine systems during the development phase and close cooperation with the design centre we were able to develop a fully automated, shelf-ready, ledge tray packaging solution
     

     

     

     
 

The result

  • The solution reduced labour costs, increased product protection, reduced material usage and increase efficiencies
  • €100k labour savings
  • €74k material savings
  • Three year RoI
  • The innovative, bespoke solution has facilitated further growth for Tivall
