Bosch Rexroth's Aftersales Packaging Strategies:Adapting for High-Mix & Low Volume
Ballroom Main Stage
High-mix, low volume parts in the automotive industry presents a unique set of challenges. In the dynamic environment of mobile hydraulics, we are faced with finding a solution to package 3,500+ part numbers with fluid demand. We will dive into the difficulties of planning for this scenario, the importance of modularity to pack this many part numbers, and how we worked to overcome these hurdles to increase work efficiency and reduce packaging costs.

Innovative Rust Prevention That Saves Money and Saves the Planet: ARMOR DEFENDER™ VCI Bag BMW Case Study
Ballroom Main Stage
Discover how Armor Protective Packaging® revolutionized BMW's rust prevention with ARMOR DEFENDER™ VCI bags, saving pounds of plastic from use or landfill. ARMOR replaced BMW’s 4 mil VCI poly bag with DEFENDER, a 3-layer rust prevention film designed to position VCI on the inner layer for optimal protection of metal parts, while utilizing the middle and outer layers for enhanced barrier protection, durability, and puncture resistance. This innovative construction allows the film to be downgauged by 25-30% without compromising effectiveness, resulting in significant cost and resource savings for BMW.

Consolidation of Automotive Supply Chain Packaging for Recycling
Ballroom Main Stage
The automotive industry has a great opportunity to recover plastic packaging materials that aren’t traditionally recovered. Individual companies do not have the volume to justify the logistics of collection but as an industry, the collected volume of materials can justify the program, reducing the impact of materials going into the landfill. How the program was initiated will be shared.
