INDUSTRIAL & PACKAGING
The strong growth in e-commerce, increasing digitalization and supply chain disruptions are just some of the trends that are fueling lasting changes in the working environment in production and logistics. Transport packaging no longer just needs to be functional and protect the products being transported.It is also used to get advertising messages across and is expected to meet sustainable criteria. People, machinery and workpieces are networked with each other, and processes are becoming faster, more individual and more efficient. At the same time, requirements regarding documentation and occupational safety are becoming increasingly stringent. Our products and consulting services in the Industrial & Packaging division help prepare our customers for these new challenges.
