As the flat glass begins its long march through what can be up to seven stages of further processing, the volumes per delivery generally decrease, whilst the value per item increases, as do the cost for packaging, transport, handling, warehousing and site storage.
After evaluating its logistical process, Thomas Giller, the inventor of the Glass-wrap packaging system, knew that there was only one way to dramatically reduce costs and at the same time simplify the logistics of flat glass:
a completely new packaging system that meets these requirements and at the same time ensures the safety of employees.
Glass-wrap, the newly developed packaging system for flat glass, fundamentally changes a more then 100 year old, complex and expensive form of logistics in this industry. And in doing so, Glass-wrap saves costs for just about every player in the flat glass supply chain.
