Large packaging savings at DBK
One of the brains behind DBK’s large packaging savings is Heiko Weissflog, Senior Technician at DBK. He realized early on that if the big e-commerce days like Black Friday and Christmas were not to result in bottlenecks and long delivery, something had to happen. He initiated the first packaging machine from VARO to be installed back in 2007. Since then, two other automatic packaging machines have been installed. Today, DBK handles packaging on three systems – one of which packs two different sizes simultaneously.
More than 1000 Danish publishers use DBK as their book distributor, thus representing 95 percent of the total commercial turnover of books in Denmark. Read more about DBK at www.dbk.dk.
No more bottlenecks
“In 2020, the Covid-19 year, orders rose to 200 percent during the Christmas shopping season. This would have been completely impossible to handle without an automation packaging system, and with the E-Com Packer we never experience bottlenecks” – Heiko Weissflog.
Technical skills and customized solutions
When asked about how the collaboration with VARO has been, Heiko Weissflog recalls: “It has been very satisfying. The employees at VARO are technically very skilled and VARO has the right people to develop solutions according to the individual customer’s wishes.
