Volvo Group packaging system
The Volvo Group packaging system is a fully managed range of packaging which mainly supports the Volvo production environment. The system is open for sub-tier suppliers sending to first tier Volvo suppliers. In specific cases, the Volvo system also supports external packaging flows which contribute to lowering the Total Cost of Ownership for Volvo.
Having good packaging that protects your goods is, of course, an obvious requirement. But it is also extremely important that the packaging is optimized for every stage of your production process, and that the packaging system supports lean production. Available load capacity must be utilized efficiently, empty runs minimized and maintenance handled correctly.
The Volvo Group packaging system is open for packaging users who require packaging volumes in their own tier Volvo supply chain. Volvo also promotes packaging flows that offer synergies for Volvo in a global context and which increase the efficiency of the Volvo packaging pool system.
