Nefab Packaging, Inc.
204 Airline Dr.
Coppell, TX, 75019

Press release date: December 3, 2013

Nefab Packaging is a complete packaging solution provider that takes the total cost into consideration. This approach works very well in the aerospace industry. Recently, Nefab Packaging worked hand-in-hand with a major aerospace company and was able to create cost savings throughout their logistics and supply chain processes.

The customer, an industry leading airline company, is responsible for service and maintenance of their own fleet as well as the fleets of other airlines – a business where the demand for fast and secure delivery of packages is a top priority in the workflow.

Fleet maintenance can take place in two different ways: at the airlines' own facilities or at other service stations throughout the world. This involves several complicated flows of spare parts from the customer to the various service stations and vice versa. Problems in that flow can be extremely costly without the right procedures to resolve them.

Nefab's review of the customer's packaging system
With expedience and security as top priority, extra costs will quickly pile up if the packaging logistics are not well organized. The customer handled more than 3,000 different types of packages delivered by roughly 10 different manufacturers and distributed to 6 different hangars. It was a tracking nightmare. First, the packages were difficult to find because it was hard to know in which hangars they were located. Second, many return packages disappeared in transit around the world because the company did not have an efficient tracking system. As a result, many components were re-packed in the wrong packages, which caused damage to fragile spare parts. In other cases new packages were purchased in a panic at the last minute, even when the right package was sitting in the next hangar a short distance away.

The customer was losing time and money. It needed a partner who could offer a complete packaging solution, with multi-material capability and a global presence. They needed a partner with design resources who could reduce and standardize the range of packaging and simultaneously develop new packages for new components. They also wanted help creating a database system to support the entire packaging process with logistics, warehousing and order management. The customer's answer?  Nefab.

Quality and Cost Control
Nefab's ability to coordinate solutions and deliveries to various and multiple locations means that both the customer's suppliers of parts, as well as their airline customers and suppliers are on time, and use the right package at the right location.  The location and transfer of information about packaging and components will move the customer forward in controlling their costs within their supply chain.

Today, the customer has full control over the flow of packages and is enjoying savings of 20-30% with much less hassle.
