Essentially, we at GISSLER & PASS follow a three-step ordering and production process:
- Briefing: You explain to us which products, route of transport, and clientele the transport packaging is needed for. In addition, we will ask you about your expectations, needs and requirements.
- Digital modelling and digital prototyping: In a next step, we draw up a tailor-made transport packaging solution on the computer.
- Prototype creation and testing: A prototype is created based on the digital model. This prototype is then subjected to rigorous testing. If it passes muster in our quality tests, we proceed to manufacture the transport packaging in the desired quantity.
The briefing is conducted by our field and packaging design experts, who will find out how you envision the packaging solution to look like.
Possible questions we may ask you during the briefing:
- What goods are supposed to be shipped in the required transport packaging?
- What is your target group?
- What are the logistics processes and routes of transport that the packaging will travel along?
- Do you have any special design expectations?
- Do you ship foodstuffs that will be directly exposed to the transport packaging?
- Is the transport packaging used to protect fragile, extra heavy, or other goods with special requirements?
- What is your budget?
Digital modelling and digital prototyping
After the briefing, we use the information provided by you to create a 3D model of the desired transport packaging, in which we employ cutting-edge CAD software. The model gives you a good idea of how your transport packaging will look like. In the computer simulation, it is possible to run through different packaging and palletising options. In this step, ideas for improvement and wishes you may have can be incorporated straight away.
Prototype creation and testing
Once the model has been finalised on the computer together with all inserts, fillers, etc., we will use this information to create a so-called prototype, which is a preproduction model of your transport packaging. On the one hand, it serves as an illustration for you. On the other hand, it is the precursor of your packaging batch. This prototype must hold up in various test runs, and will not be put into batch production unless it meets all our requirements.
Our tests are based on the following criteria:
- functionality, and
