Today, Faes Group cites shipping operations as a key ingredient to their successful omnichannel distribution strategy. By Logistyx Technologies

Faes Group is the leading manufacturer and consultant of custom sustainable packing solutions in Europe, providing flight cases, boxes, containers, racks and more to meet the packing and transportation needs of some of the world’s largest and most well-known organizations, which are sold under Faes Cases, SKB and FPC Beyond Packaging.

Faes Group’s staff was manually planning its transportation: physically creating each transport order, calling a large number of carriers to verify pricing and schedule transport, and tracking transport movements through phone calls and email exchanges with carriers’ customer service teams.
