Packaging manufacturer wraps up logistics deal
Glasgow-based manufacturer Cullen Packaging has appointed Norbert Dentressangle to handle all UK deliveries to its customer base including Marks & Spencer, NHS and Numatic International, manufacturer of the Henry vacuums.
The corrugated box manufacturer evaluated several transport providers, but Norbert's ability to offer real-time, online tracking sealed the deal.
Cullen Packaging says it is the only company in Europe that can offer a combined solution for both internal and external packaging, manufactured at the same facility. This includes produce trays, shelf ready packaging, bottle protectors and medical and industrial pulp products, all made from 100% recycled paper.
Norbert Dentressangle will collect orders from Cullen's manufacturing facility in Glasgow and will make next-day deliveries via its shared user network.
Cullen is using SHARP, Norbert's shipment handling and reporting program, which enables Cullen to place orders electronically, which are scanned and tracked in real time to improve operational efficiency.
"As an established transport provider, we are confident that Norbert Dentressangle has the resource and capability to more than meet our delivery criteria and expectations of our wide range of customers," said Richie Kelly, distribution manager at Cullen Packaging.
"This is backed up by an internet despatch programme and the SHARP system, which ensures we can easily monitor orders, as well as drill down to obtain key proof of delivery information online."
