• Antalis Packaging provides automation for The Book People

        •  

          Antalis Packaging has installed an I-Pack® corrugated packaging system for The Book People, streamlining the bookseller’s processes and optimising efficiency with an automated solution.

          The system, installed in late December 2015 at The Book People’s warehouse in North Wales, automates the packaging of 45% of the bookseller’s orders, delivering savings on labour, materials, storage and transport.

          Scott Byrom, Key Account Manager at Antalis Packaging said, “we have worked with The Book People for 15 years, so we were familiar with their processes and aware of their challenges. From looking at their processes, it was clear that automation would help to solve multiple problems at once and so we recommended the I-Pack.”

          The I-Pack corrugated automated packing system measures the height of each box’s contents and then reduces the box size to match by folding down and then gluing the flaps. This reduces void-fill material which in turn positively affects storage and transport.

          Wayne Spencer, Head of E-Commerce Logistics at The Book People added, “the I-Pack now handles 70% of orders that were previously processed manually and the only manual intervention needed is when operatives pick items and place them in the box. The machine has also eliminated 50% of the packaging materials we were using before.”
