The globalisation of all flows of goods has always included trade in consumer goods such as food. The transport of perishable goods is not only depending on the correct storage and cooling, but also on the right packaging as to preserve the taste, appearance and shelf life of fresh foods.
Premiumpack is a leading supplier in this field – and an innovative manufacturer of packaging materials. In 2013, the Vienna-based company and a production site in the nearby Lower Austrian municipality of Hagenbrunn were looking for a reliable logistics service provider to handle their worldwide orders, offering the right solution for every order, regardless of destination or shipment size. In addition, the packaging material manufacturer was concerned with full transparency along the entire supply chain.
Premiumpack found the wanted provider in cargo-partner. The partnership between the two companies has already existed since the end of 2013, and in the meantime the shipment volume has grown to 1,500 tonnes per year, and the trend is rising. The intensive cooperation includes regular road, air and sea freight transports worldwide.
Premiumpack places high demands on its logistics partner: Flexible solutions are just as important as on-time delivery and transport status updates. In order to maintain an overview of the numerous shipments, cargo-partner and the packaging material manufacturer rely on the SPOT Supply Chain Visibility & Collaboration Platform. It enables easy, on-the-shelf communication, real-time shipment tracking, comprehensive reporting capabilities, and efficient document and information management.
The customers of Premiumpack always have special demands on the transport conditions of the delivered goods, especially with regard to temperature spectrum, humidity and route guidance. In order to offer the best possible solutions, cargo-partner now offers customized services with the help of temperature-controlled refrigerated containers.
Michel Szczepanski, CEO of Premiumpack, sums up the cooperation as follows: “The company cargo-partner has been supporting us for several years with high-quality logistics solutions for our transports to all regions of the world. In doing so, we especially appreciate the personal attention that helps us master even difficult situations together.”
