Case Study

How CEVA Logistics benefits from automated packaging

There is more to packaging than a sturdy wrapping around a product. Good packaging enhances the customer experience and has a minimal impact on the environment. In Neopost’s CVP-500, CEVA Logistics has found the packaging machine that makes it all possible.

As a 3PL, CEVA Logistics supports multiple companies all around the globe and has over 40,000 employees worldwide. CEVA was looking for a packaging machine that could  package thousands of orders a day, quickly, automatically and in made-to-measure packaging. Therefore, flexibility was the most important requirement and as CEVA discovered the most challenging. As in the end, Hammen only  found  one  packaging  machine  that covers it all: Neopost’s CVP-500. Hammen: “The machine takes a 3D scan of the order to  be  processed  and  instantly  then  cuts and creases the card  to size, the card is fed to meet the order and it as wrapped around the product as a second skin.”

Not only is Neopost the only company to meet CEVA’s needs, Neopost was able to confirm their capabilities with the ability to complete robust simulations and analyses. Prior   to   a   final   handshake,   Hammen visited      Drachten   (the   Netherlands)   –  where the CVP-500 is developed and built – with thousands of packages to personally complete a test. “It was here that we saw with  our  own  eyes  how  the  production capacity was realised”, says Hammen. “The fact that we were able to conduct an open test, is worth its weight in gold in a relationship.”

Ambition

Since the machine was installed in Venray, Neopost has been working in conjunction with CEVA to optimize productivity which has enabled CEVA to send ever smaller packages. “Neopost is continuously looking to improve the CVP-500.” says Hammen. “In partnership with Neopost , we are constantly reviewing the CVP-500 and its capabilities which has led to a great success. Neopost is always prepared to review and improve itself on the basis of someone else’s insights. That makes them very strong in my eyes.”
