Export: CKD/SKD

Our CKD (Complete Knock Down) and SKD (Semi Knock Down) automotive packaging solutions are typically bespoke Heavy Duty corrugated palletised systems that optimize space and weight limitations within international shipping containers for overseas export shipments.

Destinations are often overseas territories where distribution and logistic supply chains are often not fully established for receipt of outbound packaging. Focus on packaging design and development is paramount to facilitate ease of product access and recycling to minimise total cost.

Depending on the application, pallets which integrate with the container modules will either be plastic, steel, wood or corrugated cardboard, to complement the supply chain and needs of re-use and recycling.

As the assemblies are often not of uniform size or shape and yet heavy and vulnerable and require stacking in transport and distribution warehouses, special focus is applied to internal fittings and dunnage to ensure adequate protection and safety factors – at optimum total cost.

The pallet design and development process is an integral part of our total packaging solution. By engineering these elements together and often as a physical part of the complete module, we ensure the highest level of pack performance and safety, during transit in both fully automated and developing distribution channels.

Once local manufacturing facilities become mature, durable and returnable packaging can be developed and introduced, in partnership with OEMs and their tier suppliers in tandem with the changing supply chains.
