CASE STUDY 1 : We helped a major US auto manufacturer eliminate defects and reduce transportation costs for transmission castings.
A major US auto manufacturer came to us with a specific problem: poor packaging was having a negative effect on the quality of its transmission castings. Which led to defects in the final product.
Our automotive expert worked together with the client’s R&D team, packaging engineering division and suppliers to completely redesign the packaging layout. We used custom-designed plastic moulds known as dunnage to prevent the castings from moving during transit.
Our solution—custom-designed dunnage—prevented damage during transport and also enabled the client to ship an increased layer of castings in each truck. This led to increased transport utilization and reduced the number of trips each year. Ultimately, our efforts solved the client’s key issue and also resulted in lower carbon emissions and fuel usage.
