The cooperation between Boxon China and Alfa Laval has been ongoing since 2008.
Alfa Laval’s heat exchangers are manufactured in Chinese production units, while transportation and sales are handled in Southeast Asia. Before cooperation with Boxon China, there was serious complaints regarding heat exchangers that was damaged during long distance deliverys. Alfa Laval had to send engineers to the customer to repair the products. This did not only cause a large maintenance cost, it also damaged the brand.
Boxon Packaging Design Solution
After field research, the Boxon engineer found that the reason of damage was that the original crate was not strong enough to protect products during long-distance transportation. According to transportation condition, storage environment, way of removal, design requirements etc., Boxon designed a new crate for Alfa Laval. The new crate can bear more weight, has better shock resistance and is easy to stack and transfer. Therefore, the damage risk has been solved and complaints are also reduced.
After years’ of optimizing, Boxon China has built a global packaging structure for Alfa Laval. This not only ensures transport safety and quality, it also helps Alfa Laval’s branding and last but not least it reduce the cost.
