Packaging Guideline for Suppliers
This packaging guideline is the contractual basis for delivery of parts to Trelleborg Sealing Solutions Germany GmbH. It constitutes a supplement to the general conditions of purchase. Trelleborg Sealing Solutions`s packaging guideline is an additional document for specifying the individual packaging system.
The Packaging Guideline familiarizes suppliers with the packaging requirements of Trelleborg Sealing Solutions Germany GmbH as a basis on which to develop an optimized packaging system.
Its aim is to develop a rationalized packing based on the continuous flow of material from the supplier to the destination, taking all qualitative, environmental and economic aspects into consideration.
The following instructions should guarantee a rational, uninterrupted flow of material by the use of standardized packaging and consolidated consignments.
The objective is to meet the requirements concerning environmental protection and logistics based on the criteria:
- Ecological priorities and environmental compatibility
- Logistics requirements (flow of parts)
- Quality assurance
- Safety at work
- Economic efficiency
It is the responsibility of suppliers to ensure that all items being shipped are properly and adequately preserved, protected and packed for safe arrival at their destination.
Failure to comply with the general packaging guideline may lead to a corrective action request. Furthermore the supplier may be held liable for any additional costs associated with repackaging work, handling operations or waste disposal, as well as for reductions in quality due to inadequate packaging.
