Optimal protection for overseas shipment of steering wheel switches is a challenging issue. DS Smith come out with a solution which minimise risks and reduce costs. Those who export goods overseas in large quantities need safe and cost-optimised transit & transport packaging. The automotive and commercial vehicle supplier Valeo wanted to take no risks when shipping its steering wheel switches and challenged DS Smith to design a solution. The packaging system developed by DS Smith has an interlocking padding made from corrugated cardboard, which allows the shock-proof fixing of a total of eight steering wheel switches. Due to a clever coupling mechanism the pads can be quickly connected to one another without additional tools. This allows Valeo to package the components time and cost-efficiently. And the removal by the production employees on the assembly line on site is just as quick and simple. As the painted visible surfaces of the steering wheel switches have no contact to the padding during transportation, the solution also reliably prevents scratching and other surface damage. This pack provide high protection and optimised logistics. There is high level of transport protection of the components and their surfaces with a clever coupling mechanism and an innovative protective padding. This pack have optimum pallet utilisation and optimum use of room within the containers, as two corrugated pallets can always be stacked on top of one another. This pack is quick and cost-efficient.
