KANE leverages packaging to speed products from factory to retail shelf
One of KANE’s valued consumer goods partners was experiencing huge demand for a new feminine care product. The product launch was so huge that the manufacturer struggled to meet customer demand. The company needed a way to ship bulk product from the factory and quickly convert it to packaged, shelf-ready condition. Enter KANE, which secured the specialized equipment and the FDA approval needed to handle Pharmaceutical Class 2 medical devices, all packaged in a clean room environment. Applying its extensive packaging experience, KANE was able to receive generic brown box cases of 1000 loose-packed units and quickly transform them into shelf-ready packages. Result: the company kept pace with demand and gained market share in the competitive HBA market.
Playtex and ascedia drive frieght savings from "coopetition"
Playtex, with brands like Banana Boat® suncare products and Wet Ones® face wipes, and Ascendia, parent company of Baby Magic®, Mr. Bubble® and other popular brands, compete against much larger companies within the personal care market. Both recognized a need to drive down high freight costs. With KANE’s help, they were able leverage the significant overlap in their customer base by consolidating outbound shipments. All orders are entered into KANE’s load consolidation system to identify consolidation opportunities. Companies realized transportation savings of more than 25% by shifting LTL to multi-stop truckload shipments and shortened delivery by as much as three days.
