DS Smith Hinckley Design Engineer, John Nichols' double success for export automotive bulk glass shipper.
DS Smith Hinckley Design Engineer, John Nichols achieved a "Commended" award in the "Creative & Sustainable Structural Design" category and a prestigious Silver Star in the "Secondary & Tertiary Packaging - Transit Business to Business" section of this year's major Starpack design competition.
The pack designed by John for Jaguar Land Rover allows easy access for both filling and decanting, featuring a drop down front and an outer sleeve that can be detached and re-positioned as required, ensuring maximum Supply Cycle efficiency.
This is what the competition judges had to say;
"The judges were very impressed with the engineering, care and attention to detail of this transit packaging solution. Clearly the packaging has delivered against a tough brief. For a mainly cardboard packaging solution to work the strength and integrity of the pack was the key. DS Smith have delivered this perfectly and a flow packaging solution which I am sure will benefit the client with improved commercial and return on investment. The fit of the glass panels and the cushioning around the high value product has been executed to perfection and it would take some great abuse or an unusual incident for the product to be damaged. Overall a brilliant example of how to design, develop, specify and manufacture quality transit packaging"
