Alstom Chooses AkyPak™ Reusable Containers to Transport Train Component

When Alstom, a French multinational supplier and developer of high speed trains and trams, approached DS Smith Plastics, Extruded Products they were looking for reliable and durable packaging to protect their train assembly components while they are being transported between different manufacturing locations.

The challenge:

Alstom needed a reliable and reusable transport container which could better protect the components they were transporting.

Our approach:

DS Smith Plastics offered AkyPak polypropylene containers for their durability, longer life cycles of at least five years, low maintenance and simplified material handling and logistics when compared to traditional solutions. Furthermore, AkyPak three-piece foldable polypropylene containers could be reused from one shipment to the next.  

To delight its customer, DS Smith Plastics Extruded Products assigned one engineer to the project and relocated him to another DS Smith Plastics location in La Chevrolière, France to be closer to the customer.

The results:

Due to the flexibility of DS Smith Plastics at La Chevrolière, France, the business was able to develop customized plastic containers with a variety of fittings used to protect ridged and delicate parts for Alstom France.
