Cardboard machine: an example of the circular economy
How Distrilog Group maximises its efforts for the circular economy? By joining one of our retail customers in investing in e-commerce in a new packaging machine.
At our site in Koning Leopoldlaan 5 in Puurs we recently acquired a brand new cardboard machine. This machine is fully automated and folds – as the name suggests – cardboard boxes for use in for home deliveries of products ordered online from Delhaize. The machine is fed with cardboard sheets made from the boxes in which the products are delivered to the depot. The new boxes are therefore 100% recycled cardboard. And they are also fully recyclable after use. The machine has a number of different speeds, depending on how busy it is. The boxes can also have a theme printed on them for Sinterklaas and other holidays.
The first corona wave accelerated the purchase of this cardboard machine. Automation of the operation has meant that a number of employees could be transferred to reception and order picking. A smart increase in efficiency.
