Marc Hellerich, Manager Logistics Centre Europe at Trelleborg Sealing Solutions, says the Special Handling offering is about: “Making our customers’ business easier by optimizing the entire value chain from the warehouse door onwards.”
In terms of additional packaging solutions beyond the standard offering, Special Handling offers individually bagged and tagged seals in printable bags as well as reusable transparent plastic tubes that are easy to store and use in automated environments. Another special service is kitting – ready-to-ship sets of individually packed seals.
Carina Löhmann, Logistics Engineer within Global Supply Chain Management at Trelleborg, proudly describes the twenty-year-old collaboration with Liebherr, a global manufacturer of earthmoving machinery:
“Trelleborg Sealing Solutions puts together replacement part kits, including our seals, scrapers and wear rings, ready for dispatch to wherever a Liebherr hydraulic piston has failed. These are boxed in the customer’s familiar yellow cartons, together with a packing list, and then sealed with a security label.” Around 23,000 of these kits are delivered to the Liebherr warehouse each year, helping to keep downtime to a minimum.
Saving time and resources
Marc points out the added advantage that this, as with kitting, it means the customer can log, store and retrieve the package from the warehouse as a complete item.
