Packaging manufacturers in the spotlight

Throughout the automotive value chain, packaging experts continuously seek to improve packaging materials and processes throughout the life cycle of a product and OEMs are now working together to try to achieve a step change in this area. 

The European-wide Packaging Technology and Innovation Forum includes experts from Bentley Motors, BMW, Ford Motor Company, Jaguar Land Rover, Renault Nissan Mitsubishi, Toyota and Volvo Cars who are sharing experience on the management of these costly assets in an attempt to find innovative solutions to pain points such as pool management, traceability and the performance of packaging manufacturers. 

This latter point is currently under the spotlight and the Forum members have launched a project, under the leadership of Renault Nissan Mitsubishi, to define a standard way to assess and improve the logistics and delivery capability of packaging manufacturers.
