The initial situation

“Only those who recognize the signs of the times and unpretentiously do away with outdated structures can survive on the market in the long run.”

In 2019, Hesse Lignal automated its entire administrative order flow – from the customer order to the supplier invoice. However, smart solutions for all departments along the supply chain today demand coherent IT strategies, and practical approaches are rare. This is where Packwise came into play.

The result

“Our supply chain is now not only digital; it’s also autonomous and transparent. This generates tremendous added value.”

Hesse Lignal has achieved a great deal in terms of process optimization, customer benefits, transparency, risk management and digitalization. As part of the digitalization project, all logistics management processes were redesigned from scratch. The Packwise solution enables scheduling and ordering processes that reduce the administrative effort of the supply chain to almost zero and greatly enhance supply security for all stakeholders.
