Logistics BusinessPackager’s Mobile Test Facility Goes on Tour

Last week Kite Packaging’s Midlands Regional Distribution Centre visited the Pacwolf sites with Kite’s Mobile Test Facility, which the company says is the first of its kind in the UK.

Pacwolf, part of the C.S Ellis Group, invited the Kite team onsite for two days, also inviting some of their own customers and suppliers to the event in order to explore the packaging solutions on board Kite’s mobile test facility.  The visit was a great success with the Kite and Pacwolf teams delving into the capabilities of a range of packaging solutions that accommodate efficient pick and pack operations.

The Kite facility has on board a range of packroom equipment, including a low profile pallet wrap machine, Sprick paper systems, Kite’s 5×5 system, air cushioning and an over-head delivery systems, allowing Kite’s team to find the most effective bespoke solutions for Pacwolf and the other businesses who attended, accommodating their ideal requirements.

Kite Packaging’s Mobile Test Facility was launched in September last year in conjunction with Kite announcing their 2019 challenge aimed at reducing theirs and their customer’s plastic usage by 120 tonnes. In the last six months, the UK packaging distributor, and their customers, have saved a massive 102 tonnes, keeping the business on track to exceeding its 2019 target.
