How We’ve Become The Go-To End-of-Line Distribution Service
Innovative Packaging Solutions that Produce Tangible Results
Automated Packaging System Boosts Company's Growth
A luxury products manufacturer approached Hughes Enterprises wanting to automate one of their distribution centers in New Jersey. They tried to automate their processes in the past, but faced many obstacles, resulting in little success.
We presented them with the idea of installing a system from one of our suppliers, Sealed Air, to address other areas of concern that had to do with their shipping processes. After multiple on-site demonstrations, back-and-forth conversations and an 18-month partnership with Sealed Air, we were able to engineer a customized Ultipack automated carton handling system that features high throughput tray forming, automated dunnage protection and innovative lidding processes.
Just six months after the new and improved automated system was installed, the client surpassed their goals and achieved the outcomes they were aiming for, which were to reallocate manual labor, minimize product damage and eliminate the chances of theft. All this transpired without sacrificing quality and efficiency.
