MMK – Benchmark for Logistics in Europe

14.08.2013 - Company / Mills

Fast and flexible high quality delivery and a continuous exchange of information are crucial to ensuring effective stock management for successful manufacturers of folding cartons. These are the qualities upon which our professional, high quality logistics services are built. Best proof: Edelmann recognises Mayr- Melnhof Karton as best in class in the area of logistics.

What began in 1913 as a small Swabian printer became one of the leading providers of high-quality, innovative packing solutions for the health care, beauty care and FMCG. Today, Edelmann has thirteen production facilities worldwide. 
The industry relies upon extremely short delivery times, meaning that optimised logistics processes, particularly with regard to material procurement, are extremely important to the family-owned company. Besides specific product requirements at economical prices and stable quality, Edelmann’s cartonboard suppliers must ensure a high degree of supply security with short lead times, optimised delivery quantities and transparent logistics costs. MMK comes up to the task of meeting these high standards and thanks to optimised planning tools, MMK can distinguish itself from the competition through efficiency and flexibility. 

For Edelmann, providing quality logistics means “keeping promises”. Working in close cooperation with MMK, Edelmann was able to develop and successfully meet new logistics benchmarks within only a short time. 

Thanks to MMK’s highly reliable delivery times, Edelmann has been able to make significant improvements. Jochen Kalb, head of purchasing at Edelmann, reports, “MMK is a pioneer amongst cartonboard suppliers. By optimising logistics processes, Edelmann was able to improve their business by decreasing logistics costs, reducing capital commitment, increasing availability and producing transparent cost structures.” 

This year, Edelmann is celebrating its 100-year anniversary. MMK offers its congratulations and looks forward to continued successful cooperation.
