“Packtion’s vision of supply chain collaboration for packaging design and procurement fits very well with our other B2B and Web-enabled supply chain initiatives,” says Steve David, chief information officer at P&G. “By utilizing Packtion’s collaborative capabilities with key supply chain partners, we will be able to provide our consumers with more effective, lower-cost packages.”
Terry Caloghiris, president of DuPont Packaging & Industrial Polymers, says that the combination of packaging workflow knowledge from the three companies is expected to expedite on-line commerce. Packtion offers buyers, suppliers and converters of packaging materials a means to integrate the supply chain, from design through manufacturing and procurement.
