The White Company installs Quadient’s CVP Everest fit-to-size packaging system
Quadient’s latest automated packaging system, the CVP Everest, has been selected by the UK multi-channel retailer The White Company to be installed in August at its fulfilment centre in Northampton.
The White Company offers stylishly designed, high-quality products from concept to final delivery to the customer, and its investment will support the company’s future growth plans for e-commerce orders.
Quadient’s CVP Everest measures, constructs, seals and labels each parcel in a seamless process, reducing package volumes by up to 50%, cutting cardboard usage by 20% and eliminating the need for void fill.
Furthermore, as the CVP Everest makes each package specifically to the size of the individual order, the customer experience is enhanced and trailer volumes are massively reduced, saving transport costs and CO2 emissions.
Jérôme Vigier, executive vice president, Emerging Operations, Quadient, explained: “The CVP Everest is an innovation designed, created and built by our R&D teams in Drachten, Netherlands. It delivers on our promise to be the driving force behind the world’s most meaningful customer experiences, optimizing all steps of package fulfilment in a sustainable manner and strengthening the customer experience.”
Rob Gascoigne, DC continuous improvement manager, The White Company, added: “To meet the uplift in e-commerce order volumes and to efficiently comply with new health and safety requirements brought on by the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, we decided to invest in an automated packaging technology that could not only deliver speed, but importantly, would present a sustainable packaging solution for the future.”
The investment in the CVP Everest, the first commercial installation of this technology since its launch back in January 2020, will support the continued efforts of The White Company to reduce the environmental impact of its distribution centre and wider fulfilment and delivery operation as part of the wider sustainability journey.
