PackAssist takes this frequently occurring problem into account and calls it different "destinations".
Examples of "destinations" are:
- Distinction between packing for production and packing as service part
- Distinction between seperate packing and bulk packing
- Different transportation methods (air/sea/road) for the same product
- Customer specific packaging and/or labeling
So even when you did not define all links between products and packaging PackAssist is of great help to you.
In these cases PackAssist informs the packaging specialist with a picture, product code and the dimensions of the product. In this way no time is lost on informing the specialist and the packaging specialist is provided with all information he needs to come up with a fitting solution.
That is why PackAssist has a print module. With this print module you realize as a company that all departments, worldwide, and all your suppliers within your supply chain, place identical labels consistently in the same position on the packaging.
The exact location is shown in an animated instruction in PackAssist that at the same time gives a command to print the uniform label in your company’s design. In this way you get identical looking packaging, worldwide and from every location. This leaves a professional image at your customers.

“After an intense collaboration, we came to the perfect solution that helps to bring simplicity to the complex supply chain!”
