Whether it’s Over The Counter (OTC), Tobacco or Pharmaceutical products, any branded product requires a large number of pre-printed cartons to be purchased for packing these delicate or high value products. However, forecasting the volume and timing of when cartons should be in inventory can be tricky, creating tie up of space, capital and significant waste, if the forecasting accuracy is affected by seasonal changes, promotions or retailing shifts.
Today, the DataLase solution enables any requirements for variable information to be printed digitally inline directly on to the carton at the point of packing and filling, avoiding the requirement to forecast, pre-order, store and waste valuable carton stock.
