Packaging Outsourcing problem to solve
A government department urgently needed an organisation to manage its packaging because the existing contractor was not performing adequately and had decided to withdraw from their contract at very short notice.
DS Smith Packaging Services Packaging Outsourcing Solution
As an existing tier 2 supplier, DS Smith Packaging Services was ideally placed to be considered for the contract, especially as it had consistently received excellent supplier performance reviews over many years.
The existing supply chain was analysed rapidly and an alternative was agreed with the government department.
DS Smith Packaging Services took on the management of the 80 other existing Tier 2 suppliers that originally managed over 900 specifications.
The whole process was reviewed, a recommendation made and contract agreed within 12 weeks.
