Goodman Fielder is a leading company across Australia, New Zealand and Asia Pacific that manufactures, packages and distributes a wide range of food products. We met them at a time when they were considering a change of supplier to someone hassle free and low maintenance that they could rely on. We worked together to design and create a customised packaging solution. The new slip sheets are durable and fit for purpose, meeting Goodman Fielder’s needs without any wastage.
Used when exporting products to China, the new slip sheet solution is a lightweight alternative to using wooden pallets; they are also 30% smaller which frees up room to export more goods, ultimately leading to transport cost savings. Further cost savings come from eliminating the need for pallet exchange.
The slip sheets perform in both cold and humid environments and have a much longer life compared to corrugated and fibreboard. They are suitable for pallet sizes up to 1500mm x 2500mm with sheet thickness varying from 0.55mm up to 2.00mm.
Success of this project is in part due to working collaborative and meeting regularly to help build a trusted relationship. “EPL really understood our business and our needs. We’ve had no product failures in the 5-year relationship. And no complaints from our clients.”
