Switching from plastic crates to corrugated packaging has a considerable impact on the logistical chain. However, the adjustment is in reality a game changer for producers, offering both logistical and environmental benefits.
When VPK Nordic first approached Nortura - one of the largest suppliers of processed meat in Norway - to show how changing from plastic crate packaging to corrugated boxes could result in significant savings in logistics, the required changes and investments were too extensive to implement. However, 2 major retailers started constructing new, automated warehouses shortly after. The plastic crates would not work well in these new warehouses, so there was all the more reason for Nortura to change their packaging. With our proposal from previous years in mind, Nortura asked us to work with them to make the change to corrugated boxes.
