Partner project for Oakland International and Network Packaging

Multi temperature supply chain, distribution and logistics expert Oakland International and Network Packaging, a leading UK packaging and materials distributor, are joining forces for several beneficial partner projects. Oakland International Senior Accounts Assistant, Christian Stokes, explains: “We are always keen to review every business project or service we offer with fresh eyes and to see how we can add value. The opportunity we identified was to keep bulk packaging stocks offsite so we could utilise production or product storage space more effectively, while also improving our stock management.

“By partnering with Network Packaging on a number of projects including packaging design and supply, warehouse consumables and contract packing machinery, we can utilise our existing space more effectively and store bulk packaging offsite until needed, calling smaller stock quantities back to site as and when we need it.” Benefits delivered via Oakland’s partnership include economies of scale with product packaging ordered more cost-effectively, and in time the business will also benefit from centralising ordering.
