For many companies, manufacturing and quality are the focus of container planning. The supply chain, on the other hand, is often disregarded. Frequently, there is no container strategy across the supply chain in place, which can lead to a mixed container landscape. This results in high costs in logistics, manufacturing, and quality.
Beyond this, container management poses unsolved challenges for many companies. The investment risks associated with containers are often unavoidable. The number of containers in the network is usually not clear. And required product availability in many cases means that a surplus of containers is purchased. Decisions about special containers over standard ones are made for technical reasons, often without regard for the resulting costs.
