PackOnTime from the automation experts at Kern

Kern will be presenting our clever multi format packaging solution that creates a patented box from a flat cardboard sheet where all three dimensions are continuously adapted to the content. The box can be opened easily, without tools. Its inherently stable shape means that the box can be used for storage or returns.

Customer purchasing behaviour and expectations are changing because of the increasing number of online offerings. More and more crucial for the buying decisions are, in addition to the price, factors such as availability and delivery time. Customers order an item when they need it.

Shorter delivery times, right up to same-day-delivery, the reduction of delivery costs and minimum order quantities are also reducing the average number of items per order. With the reduction of the articles per package, more and more air is transported in the commonly used standard shipping cartons.

The size leads to problems in the entire value-added chain from storage, sorting, transport and distribution throughout the whole delivery chain. This leads to increased costs because of storage space requirements and to more ground transport units.

Overnight deliveries for accessories, spare parts, industry consumables, household items or home electronics are becoming the norm. Items need to be ready for dispatch, ex-stock, in a very short turnaround time.

With the award winning PackOnTime solution from Kern, your products can be measured dynamically and automatically packed in a custom made box and sealed ready to go.
