The software manufactory principle: A tailor-made solution based on proven best practices

We have been at heart of the intralogistics market as planners and implementers since 1980, so we know that the most efficient solutions are as simple as possible and only as complex as necessary. Packaging in e-commerce poses many challenges for governments, companies and end consumers, that is why we are tackling this issue.

Local waste management companies and end consumers have to handle more and more cartons, while retailers depend on a pool of flexible labour, which leads to fluctuations in quality and throughput in the packaging process.

Our solution is nExtCOMbag: The answer to current e-commerce challenges based on kraft paper bags. It performs fully automatic packaging with the features sorting, filling, document management, packaging material handling, ‘intermarrying’ of containers and packaging, printing of shipping labels and the final volume-optimised sealing of single and multi-pos orders. In the design of nExtCOMbag, we place emphasis on compactness, modularity and the simplest possible conveying processes.

The design

Economic, sustainable and end customer-friendly e-commerce logistics

Due to the high variance in size and combination of the ordered goods, the packaging of this variety of products is difficult to automate. Well-packed goods are a unique selling point to stand out from the competition. In addition, the avoidance of surplus and unused volume creates more efficiency in the logistics processes.

Our technology, including kraft paper bags, enables fully automated processing. This saves money, is environmentally friendly and, thanks to a uniform packaging design with integrated resealability, is also particularly end-customer-friendly.
