Premiumpack is an Austrian company based in Vienna with production facilities in close proximity to its headquarters. The company is an innovative manufacturer of packaging materials in the form of shrink bags and has been working with cargo-partner since 2013. Premiumpack's products, which are sold worldwide, significantly contribute to conserving the taste, appearance and shelf life of fresh foods.
The globalization of goods flows has always included the trading of consumer products such as foodstuffs. The transport of perishable goods depends not only on correct storage and temperature-control, but also on optimal packaging, and Premiumpack is considered to be a leader in this field. In 2013, the company was looking for a reliable logistics provider who could manage the transport of its products to customers around the world and offer a suitable solution for any order, irrespective of the destination and shipment volume. In addition, the company required a logistics partner who could ensure full transparency along the entire supply chain. With cargo-partner, Premiumpack found a provider who could fulfill their needs from a single source.
The partnership between Premiumpack and cargo-partner began in 2013 and has grown to encompass shipment volumes of 1,500 t per year, with a continuing upward trend. The intensive cooperation includes regular worldwide air, sea and road transports. Premiumpack places high demands on its logistics partner: Flexible solutions are just as important as timeliness and updates about the status of Premiumpack's transports. To keep an optimal overview of their numerous shipments, cargo-partner and the packaging manufacturer rely on SPOT.
The SPOT Supply Chain Visibility & Collaboration Platform enables simple communication on shipment level, tracking in real time, comprehensive reporting options as well as efficient document and information management. cargo-partner's wealth of experience as a logistics provider with over 35 years of expertise has been a decisive factor in resolving potential challenges along the way. For instance, Premiumpack had made some negative experiences in the past with a particularly thin type of plastic foil from its product portfolio. When transporting this foil to warmer climate zones, the heat and condensation had occasionally altered the properties of the material. To rule out this risk in future shipments, cargo-partner now offers tailor-made solutions utilizing temperature-controlled reefer containers.
Michel Szczepanski, CEO of Premiumpack, sums up the collaboration: "cargo-partner has been supporting us with quality logistics solutions for our transports to all regions of the world for several years. We especially appreciate the personal consultation which helps us master even difficult situations together."
