Nestle: Smart and automated packing solutions for retail and e-commerce
Do you have solutions to make our packing process more efficient at our Distribution Centre? These solutions can range from collaborative robots to tracking tools and automation systems.
About the challenge
As e-commerce is taking-off for Nestle’s brands such as NESCAFE, MILO, and MAGGI, consumers purchase more and more special offerings online, hence the need for “re-packing” solutions. Re-packing consists of packing bundled e-commerce offers.
This puts a lot of pressure and complexity on the current setup at our factories and at our third party warehouses.
As such, we are looking for new agile solutions that would help us customize our repacking processes, reducing additional complexity and building on the current setup at our factories and Distribution Centre.
From advanced digital solutions to lean logistics tools and collaborative robots, software-based and hardware-based solutions, we are open to innovative technologies that are proven in this field of re-packing operations.
